White House spokeswoman Stephanie Gresham has confirmed that US President Donald Trump has canceled White House subscriptions to The Washington Post and The New York Times.
The decision comes after Trump told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity on Monday that he no longer wanted to see the newspapers in the corridors of the White House as "fake newspapers," as he described.
Since taking office, Trump has been attacking US newspapers and news channels such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN and NBC for describing their coverage as unfair.
"Everyone thinks that the New York Times and the Washington Post are treating me terribly," Trump said at a Oval Office meeting with senior reporters in The Times.
"I honestly think these newspapers are losing credibility with these actions. I don't think I have a good story in the New York Times."
Trump has repeatedly complained about what he calls unfair coverage of his presidency, and his controversy with the media reaches a personal level, with Trump and his aides sometimes being insulted or scolded by journalists, who do not like them in public.
In November 2018, Trump flared with anger and clashed with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta at a news conference.The White House briefly withdrew the journalist's credentials before the court ordered her return.
