Reporters at The New York Times tweeted details from a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump as it happened Tuesday, contrasting it with an off-the-record session Trump held a day earlier with leaders at the top television networks.
Reporters Maggie Haberman and Mike Grynbaum sent out quotes from Trump on his decision not to pursue a case against former opponent Hillary Clinton about her a private email server, and potential conflicts between his business and government.
The meeting came amid questions about Trump’s forthrightness with the media. He hasn’t held a news conference since his election and on Tuesday sent out a video news release about some of his plans upon taking office.
His meeting with television executives triggered reports that he lectured them about their coverage of his campaign.
