NEW YORK (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump abruptly canceled a meeting with The New York Times on Tuesday, accusing the organization of changing the conditions for the session “at the last moment.” The newspaper denied the charge and said Trump’s aides tried to change the rules.

He’d been scheduled to meet Times reporters, editors and columnists and did not give details of his complaint, saying in a morning tweet only that “the terms and conditions of the meeting were changed at the last moment. Not nice.”

Eileen M. Murphy, the newspaper’s senior vice president for communications, said: “We did not change the ground rules at all and made no attempt to.”

The Times quoted her as saying Trump’s aides tried to alter the conditions, asking for a private meeting only, with nothing on the record, “which we refused to agree to.

“In the end,” she said, “we concluded with them that we would go back to the original plan of a small off-the-record session and a larger on-the-record session with reporters and columnists.” That was followed by Trump pulling out.

Trump met privately Monday with representatives of the television networks.

The president-elect heralded “more great meetings” in his Manhattan tower as he continues shaping his administration before heading to Florida for Thanksgiving on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    It’s a disgrace to have this person representing the US. It’s a travesty. He is so incompetent. So ignorant. So unprepared for the job he’s been elected to do. The ppl who voted for him need their head examined. I can’t stand to hear his voice. See his face. It’s going to be a looooong 4 yrs. unbelievable

  3. trump: “,,,who will run our government for the next 8 years.” Doesn’t he know the presidential term is four years? He would have to be re-elected first and let’s hope by then folks would have come to their dumb ass senses.

    • They didn’t come to their collective senses when Obama was executing failure after failure. Economically, foreign relations, trade, jobs, education, and race relations, Obama’s legacy will be the worst president in history. Stats don’t lie. But he was black, so the usual idiots will defend him.

  4. Buyer’s Remorse should start kicking in soon for those Donald racist, ignorant, losers supporters who won’t re-invent themselves. Instead it’s everybody else’s fault that they are no longer “easily thriving. Start with Donald and the CEOs who moved the jobs overseas. Donald has already stated he is going to eliminate “Federal employees.” (Still don’t care?)

  5. This “man-child” will NEVER be recognized as President as far as I’m concerned! If he doesn’t get everything his way, it’s always a disaster, rigged, unfair, and too many scapegoating excuses to name. Who does that! Iagne of President Obama carried o this way? It would be a whole another story. I hope Donald and his Administration fails miserably!

  6. There is nothing presidential about Chump-he acts like a petulant child!

    This POS has temper tantrums if folks don’t agree with him, he holds grudges if you dare to go against him, etc.–so why is this fool on the way to the WH? All because his Xenophobic,
    Hateful supporters voted his ass in.

    They should all be careful what they have wished for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I hope the people that voted for Trump realize that we now have a 5 year old as the Commander in Chief. Most of his supporters don’t seem to care. Trump had all kinds of childish tactics when he was running; not even mentioning all the accusations against him. SMDH!! As for the media most people couldn’t care less if he meets with the Times, the Post, or whoever. And, as far as TV is concerned…..lots of people I’ve talked to said they don’t even watch the news anymore because THEY ARE TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT TRUMP
