The move came in response to a rule passed by the Democratic National Committee last year that anyone seeking the party's 2020 presidential nomination must do so as a Democrat. That rule change was seen by Sanders's supporters as a direct response to the Vermont sen ator, who identifies as a democratic socialist and has long refused to consider himself a member of the party despite caucusing with Democrats in the Senate. To be sure, Sanders filed to run for president last month as a Democrat.

Although there have been few briefings in the designated White House briefing room, Sanders has continued to regularly take questions during impromptu appearances, often on the driveway north of the West Wing, when she walks back to her office following TV interviews by the White House driveway.

Some White House reporters say that briefings are a good opportunity to get additional information, but critics of briefings, including Sanders predecessor Sean Spicer, said they devolved into confrontations starring reporters seeking to become more famous.

“The briefing is not serving a constructive purpose anymore. It doesn’t need to exist every day, and it definitely doesn’t have to be on camera,” Spicer told the Washington Examiner in April 2018, before the gradual phase-out under White House communications director Bill Shine, who was hired in July and resigned Friday.

Martha Kumar, a historian who keeps records of press interactions as director of the White House Transition Project, indicated the intervals between press conference was unprecedented in modern times.

"I can't remember such a period and I've been coming since the Ford administration," said Kumar, who works out of the White House press room and regularly attends briefings.

Kumar said briefings have evolved over time. The first press secretary was appointed in 1929, and briefings weren't televised until 1995. Before its current 49-seat configuration, the White House press briefing room had couches, and in the Clinton administration, the press secretaries would have morning gaggles in their office before briefings later in the day.

Although press secretaries retain the discretion to call on particular reporters, Kumar said briefings are fundamentally different from other formats in that they allow reporters to set the agenda.

"A briefing is a reporter's opportunity, not just the White House's, but the reporters' opportunity on behalf of the public to ask questions about what they think is important," she said.
