Trump ‘Erupted With Rage’ When Melania’s Air Force One TV Was Tuned To ‘Fake News’ CNN: NY Times



On the first couple’s recent trip overseas, President Donald Trump reportedly fumed and caused “a bit of a stir” after staff members failed to change Melania Trump’s television channel to Fox News aboard Air Force One, according to an email obtained by The New York Times.

According to the Times report, Trump officials confirmed that TV’s will be tuned to Fox going forward

The New York Times adds:

The email, an internal exchange between officials in the White House Military Office and the White House Communications Agency last Thursday, also called for the ordering of two additional televisions to support Beam, a TiVo-like streaming device, to make sure the president and first lady could both watch TV in their separate hotel rooms when they travel.

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement on Wednesday that the first lady watches “any channel she wants,” in an apparent rebuke of the Times report that Trump was upset to find her Air Force One television tuned into CNN.

“Did you know that every 15 minutes a baby is born with NAS? Maybe you’d like to talk about the 160,000 kids who skip school every day for fear of being bullied, or that 280,000 students are physically attacked in schools every month,” Grisham said in a statement to CNN’s Kate Bennett. “Seems kind of silly to worry about what channel she watches on TV (any channel she wants btw) or if she heard some recording on the news.”
