WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday it planned not to renew subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post, which US President Donald Trump continues to accuse of publishing false news and reports.
White House spokeswoman Stephanie Gresham confirmed in a press release that the contributions would not be renewed and would be terminated.
In an interview with Fox News, Trump described the newspapers as "fake newspapers," adding that he did not want to see them again at the White House.
In the same interview, Trump pointed out that the New York Times apologized for his campaign coverage, something the Washington Post confirmed lies, and said the press had treated the family of former Vice President Joe Biden - his likely rival in the presidential election - than his family.
Trump has recently accused both newspapers, along with CNN, of "spreading" false news "and launching an attack on him. He accused the US press of being" corrupt "and working for the Democratic Party.
