"Maybe it's good for the country that the president is in a good mood in the morning", one RNC staff member told Vice.
National Security Council officials strategically included Trump's name in 'as many paragraphs as we can because he keeps reading if he's mentioned, ' one source claimed.
If there's a particular day where there's not enough positive news, the team reportedly looking for photos of him looking powerful, according to three current and former White House officials. Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer both vied for the job of delivering the roughly 20-to-25-page document to Trump each day, the report noted.
Vice's Alex Thompson, who wrote the article, said that the packet of documents contains "good news" and that "some in the White House ruefully refer to the packet as 'the propaganda document.'" Thompson said that, according to sources, the only feedback ever given by Trump about the documents was that "it needs to be more f***ing positive".

The folder, which has been dubbed the "propaganda document" by some in the White House, is collated by the communications team.
The process of creating the dossier begins at the Republican National Committee's "war room" - a group that is tasked with monitoring local and global news, digital media and print media to analyze how the party, its candidate and their opponents are being perceived by the world at large. Positive news, pictures, and tweets relating to the president. The White House historically monitors the media to see how they're being covered.
"If we had prepared such a digest for Obama, he would have roared with laughter", David Axelrod, a senior adviser to Barack Obama during his first two years in office, told Vice.
Spicer disputed the report, asserting that it was "not accurate on several levels".
On July 21, Spicer resigned in protest after Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci to head the White House communications department.
The president frequently praises TV shows and their hosts, including the people of "Fox & Friends" and Sean Hannity, who look upon his presidency favorably.
