New York Times Publisher Slams Trump's Anti-Media Rhetoric As Tyrannical, 'Dangerous'

Sulzberger also noted that he met with Trump at the White House - once last July and again at the end of January - when the publisher and the president discussed Trump's abusive treatment of the media.

Among the claims in the Times' latest bombshell was one in which the president had directed his former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to install a Trump loyalist to take charge of an investigation by the Southern District of NY into hush money payments Trump had made to women during the 2016 presidential campaign. "They are totally out of control", he posted. "In six years, they all go BUST!"

On Wednesday, the Times published an in-depth report outlining the investigations hovering around Trump and how he reacted to them.

Haberman said she and her team sent "several emails" to the White House during their reporting that went "unanswered".

Hours after the president accused the Times of fabricating its reporting and not bothering to reach out to the White House for comment - a claim that Times report Maggie Haberman shot down as "a lie" - Sulzberger compared the president to foreign tyrants who don't just complain about negative coverage, but try to portray the role of the free press as illegitimate.

The Goop founder also alleged that Sanderson's friend said that he acted the same after the incident as he did before the crash. A representative for Deer Valley told CNN they "will not comment on any pending legal matters of the resort or our guests".

"We went through a detailed list of what we were planning on reporting". Now whether his aides are not telling him what we are looking at or whether this is a game and he knows what it is or doesn't, I can't read his mind.

"That's a lie", she said. "Then afterwards the president acts surprised".

New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger has since denounced the president's slam against the newspaper as "dangerous rhetoric".

He has used the term "enemy of the people" close to two dozen times on Twitter, but never before has he targeted just one outlet with the Soviet-era slur.

Sulzberger made this denunciation of Trump on the very same week that The Washington Post was slapped with a lawsuit claiming $250 million in damages for destroying the reputation of a teenage schoolboy.
