The White House is looking for someone to take some load off of its Press Secretary Sean Spicer, after his performance in the briefing room disappointed US President Donald Trump, a media report said on Wednesday.

A White House spokesperson told The Huffington Post's Sam Stein that the list comprised "ISIS or ISIS-related attacks on Western targets from [2014-16], ***MOST*** of which were not widely reported on".

The list came soon after the US President Donald Trump told a conference of his military commanders in Tampa that media is not reporting numerous terrorist attacks.

-President Trump's assertion that terrorist attacks go unreported is being challenged by journalists from around the world.

The article also said Mr. Trump's aides "confer in the dark because they can not figure out how to operate the light switches in the Cabinet room".

"I think this is one of the most outrageous claims the president has made, among many, because it really says, basically, that the press is not doing its job because it has its own political agenda", he told CNN.

Waymo touted the results of the report in a blog post authored by the company's head of self-driving technology, Dmitri Dolgov. Volkswagen and Honda , which both logged miles in 2015, both reported they had logged zero miles in their 2016 reports.

The president said on Monday that the press is "very dishonest" and had chosen not to report thoroughly on attacks that were mostly linked to radical Islamists, omitting far-right white nationalist attacks, such as the mosque attack in the Canadian city of Quebec last month in which a gunman killed six Muslims.

With his ban on immigration mired in the courts and public opinion of the executive order slipping according to at least one pollster, President Trump's team this week tried to bolster the case for the ban by highlighting a number of recent terrorist attacks.

The list covered the period from September 2014 to December 2016, and though Israel experienced a sharp uptick in stabbings, shootings and vehicular attacks during part of that period, no incidents in Israel were included on the roster. Spicer did not offer any specific examples at the time, but said he believed that while some attacks or foiled attacks "barely [get] coverage", extensive reporting has been done on some protests against the Trump administration. Our producer, Dan Merica, just obtained this from a White House official, and there are 78 attacks listed on this list. "Some FAKE NEWS media, to marginalize, lies!" The list appeared to be hastily assembled, including several misspellings of the word "attacker". Trump did not specify any particular incidents that had been omitted from coverage.

Trump, who paid a visit to US Central Command in Tampa, condemned the media for downplaying the terror threat his administration has cited to justify the travel ban.

In the days since the judge's ruling last Friday night, Trump sent nine tweets about the judge and stoking fear that suddenly the door had been opened for terrorists to enter the country and cause "death & destruction".
