Page took questions from the audience, some who asked her about covering President Trump.
She called Trump “the most transparent president I’ve ever covered...he says what he thinks.” She said during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump was much more available to reporters than Hilary Clinton, which she said was a mistake for Clinton.
Page described covering Trump as “never boring,” but that she and the other White House reporters “never get a day off”—alluding to the president’s constant tweets.
Page is now under contract to write a book about US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and has already interviewed Pelosi a handful of times.
Page says the Speaker told her the story about ripping up the State of the Union speech.
But, said Page, “if you want to hear it, you’ll have to buy the book!”
