Trump fired back at The New York Times on Monday over a report that said he watches a minimum of four hours of cable news each day.
"Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong!" Trump wrote on Twitter.
The tweet comes after The Times, in a report published over the weekend, cited individuals close to the president saying Trump watches anywhere from four to sometimes eight hours of cable news during the day.
There were also reports that Trump eats too much McDonald's and is addicted to Diet Coke.
Very little discussion of all the purposely false and defamatory stories put out this week by the Fake News Media. They are out of control - correct reporting means nothing to them. Major lies written, then forced to be withdrawn after they are exposed...a stain on America!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2017
Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2017
