White House to Cancel NY Times, WashPost Subscriptions

Donald Trump's pettiness knows no limits.

US President Donald Trump, in his latest attack on the American media, has said that he would "probably terminate" the New York Times and the Washington Post from the White House because "they're fake".

It was, to say the least, quite a contrast to the interview that Fox News' Chris Wallace conducted on Sunday of Mick Mulvaney, in which Wallace challenged Trump's acting chief of staff repeatedly on his comments that seemed to confirm there was indeed a quid pro quo when it came to aid to Ukraine. "The media's corrupt", Trump said, before assuring Hannity that the label doesn't apply to him: "Not all media".

On Monday, President Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity, "The New York Times - which is a fake newspaper - we don't even want it in the White House anymore, we're going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post", reiterating, "They're fake".

A day after Trump's interview with Hannity aired, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham confirmed to reporters that Trump was talking about subscriptions to the two newspapers, which she said the White House "won't be renewing". "Look, I know some great people, including you, but I know some great journalists".

Paul Merson Says: Harry Kane must think about his future at Tottenham
It's always the same in football and you are thinking the same as me". "That is football, I'm not surprised". Asked if this was the worst phase of his time at Spurs, captain Kane replied: "Yes, probably, I'd say so".

We'll see about that.

Both the Times and Post are usual targets of the president - along with other outlets like CNN and MSNBC - but no outlet is safe from the president's ire. The two papers are reportedly among the four delivered to his residence every morning, along with the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal.

"They give Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong and all these people from the New York Times which is a fake newspaper".

Instead, Trump went unchallenged in his assertions - ones that he, Rudy Giuliani and Hannity have repeated frequently since House Democrats began their impeachment inquiry.

It's not like Trump can just transition to reading online, either.
