Sulzberger.A transcript of the lengthy discussion about the media, the news and the freedom of the press was published by the Times. “I came from Jamaica, Queens, Jamaica Estates, and I became president of the United States,” Trump told them. “I’m sort of entitled to a great story — just one — from my newspaper.” The president expressed his willingness to speak with either of the two reporters on the record to discuss their stories before they were published. “If I were a reporter and I called somebody and they didn’t call me back, I’d probably be psychologically, maybe not even on purpose, I would probably be inclined to do bad … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Continues Wooing the New York Times for Positive Coverage
