Trump backs out, change mind and will new meet with New York Times
The flip-flopper flipped again.
On Tuesday morning President-elect Donald Trump backed out of a meeting he had called with The New York Times.
But hours later he changed his mind and decided to visit the newspaper after all.
Trump is heading over to the Times’ headquarters, press secretary Hope Hicks told CNNMoney around 9:45 a.m, three and a half hours after Trump tweeted to announce the meeting had been canceled.
A portion of the meeting will be an on-the-record interview, as the newspaper originally wanted.
“Mr. Trump’s staff has told us that the President Elect’s meeting with The Times is on again,” Eileen Murphy, head of communications for the Times, said in a statement. “He will meet with our publisher off-the-record and that session will be followed by an on-the-record meeting with our journalists and editorial columnists.”
The thin-skin preident elect continues his blind hatred of the press.
Trump backed out of a meeting he had called with The New York Times on Tuesday.
Trump had asked for the meeting with Times executives, and also agreed to meet on the record with reporters and columnists.
He claimed on Twitter that the “terms and conditions” were changed at the last minute.
“Not nice,” Trump said in an early morning tweet. He called the newspaper “failing,” a favorite insult.
In a second tweet minutes later, the president-elect said: “Perhaps a new meeting will be set up with the @nytimes. In the meantime they continue to cover me inaccurately and with a nasty tone!”
