President Trump castigated his staff during his recent trip overseas for playing CNN on the television on Air Force One, a Tuesday report reveals.
The Washington Examiner reports,
According to a Thursday email exchange obtained by the New York Times, Trump told his staff that the White House entourage should begin each trip with Fox News on the television, instead of the “fake news” CNN.
The officials in the email exchange said that the television mishap caused “a bit of a stir,” and going forward tuning the TVs to Fox News would be a standard operating procedure.
Officials in the White House Military Office and White House Communications Agency also said in the email exchange that Trump ordered two more televisions that support Beam, a TiVo-like streaming device, so he and first lady Melania Trump could both watch TV in their separate hotel rooms when they travel.
Since his campaign, Trump has called CNN “fake news” and accused them of reporting dishonest stories about him and his administration.
