or the Washington Post, two papers whose coverage frequently angers the president, who claims they are "fake news."
Trump on Monday told Fox News’ Sean Hannity ‐ a fervent backer of the president ‐ that "we don’t even want it in the White House anymore," referring to the Times.
"We’re going to probably terminate that and the Washington Post," Trump said. "They’re fake."
White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed to Politico that "we won’t be renewing."
Earlier this year in an Oval Office interview with Times news hounds and the paper’s publisher, the president complained that he wasn’t treated fairly.
"Everybody thinks the New York Times treats me terribly. Washington Post also, but the New York Times even more so treats me unbelievably terribly," Trump said.
