Trump Lashes Out Against New York Times for Report on White House Turmoil
President Trump snaps on Twitter, surprise, this Monday morning regarding numerous news reports which reveal the confusion occurring inside of the White House; Trump continues to attack the media with his signature “fake news” accusation as the administration fumbles to get ahead of the adamant reports of the highly dysfunctional White House.
One of Trump’s tweets was sent from Air Force One en route to Tampa, Florida, and contained another “fake news” accusation against the New Yorks regarding their report which revealed the details of the Trump administration’s tensions and struggles.
“The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!” Trump tweeted early Monday morning; no comments were made about how the words of his own advisers were used in the story.
Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, elaborated Trump’s resentment during a squabble with reports on a return flight to Washington, D.C. Spicer described the Times as “so-called reporting” and “literally the epitome of fake news,” as quoted in the NY Times report.
Spicer continued to dispute with reporters that the “unacceptable” report was riddled with “blatant factual errors” and demanded an apology to President Trump.
“From day one, back through the campaign and frankly his time as a successful businessman, always called the shots. He’s the decider,” Spicer told reporters referring to Trump. “He’s the one who develops the policy, he’s the one who makes the decision, and I think there are so many times when you see things that don’t recognize that he is the guy that calls the shots. He develops the policies; he implements the policies, he makes the key decisions.”
