During a White House press conference that often seemed unhinged and completely off the rails, Republican President Donald Trump said, “I will say that I never get phone calls from the media. How do they write a story like that in the Wall Street Journal without asking me or how do they write a story in the New York Times put it on the front page.”
But, in fact, media outlets almost always call his administration for comments. That is the way the media works. But because this administration is so combative and has so much to hide, they lie about it. The article he is referring to even included a denial by the administration!
