Well, it looks as though Donald Trump is going back on what he said early this morning about meeting with the New York Times. He IS going to meet with them after all, his team says.
Trump is heading over to the Times’ headquarters now, press secretary Hope Hicks told CNNMoney around 9:45 a.m.
A portion of the meeting will be an on-the-record interview, as the newspaper originally wanted.
“Mr. Trump’s staff has told us that the President Elect’s meeting with The Times is on again,” Eileen Murphy, head of communications for the Times, said in a statement. “He will meet with our publisher off-the-record and that session will be followed by an on-the-record meeting with our journalists and editorial columnists.”
So, there’s that. I have to wonder who conceded what and when. There’s a very short timeline here. Oh well, only four more years of impulsive decisions made on Twitter, I guess? I dunno.
