President-Elect Donald Trump started off his Tuesday before Thanksgiving with a volley of tweets directed mainly at the New York Times, as a meeting between Trump and officials of that newspaper was canceled, one day after a reportedly contentious meeting between the next President and top executives of the major broadcast networks.
I cancelled today's meeting with the failing @nytimes when the terms and conditions of the meeting were changed at the last moment. Not nice
Mr. Trump also used Twitter on Monday night to complain that the press was wrongly looking in to his business interests, and how those might collide with his duties in the White House.
“Trump’s Foreign Business Deals May Test a Constitutional Limit,” read the front page headline today in the New York Times,” which also carried a lead story on a video that Trump released Monday evening, in which he declared that his transition was running smoothly.
Mr. Trump has still not held a news conference since his election, which has been a standard procedure for winners of the White House.
