Trump urges New York Times publisher to be fair

TRUMP URGES NEW YORK TIMES PUBLISHER TO BE FAIR

President Donald Trump says A.G. Sulzberger's ascension as publisher of The New York Times gives the newspaper a "last chance" to fulfill its founder's vision of impartiality.

Trump regularly refers to the "failing New York Times" but often grants it exclusive interviews. Trump spent 30 minutes with a Times reporter last week during lunch at Trump's West Palm Beach, Florida, golf club.

Thirty-seven-year-old Arthur Gregg Sulzberger took over Jan. 1 from his father, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr.

In a tweet Tuesday, Trump urged the new publisher to "Get impartial journalists of a much higher standard, lose all of your phony and non-existent 'sources,' and treat the President of the United States FAIRLY, so that the next time I (and the people) win, you won't have to write an apology to your readers for a job poorly done!"
