President Trump unleashed a series of tweets Sunday lambasting the news media's coverage of his administration, saying that he won't "allow our great country to be sold out by anti-Trump haters in the dying newspaper industry."
"When the media - driven insane by their Trump Derangement Syndrome - reveals internal deliberations of our government, it truly puts the lives of many, not just journalists, at risk! Very unpatriotic!"
The backdrop: His Twitter tirade comes hours after he announced that he had met earlier this month with A.G. Sulzberger, the publisher of The New York Times, which Trump claimed involved a discussion "about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media. But Sulzberger issued a statement afterward that he accepted the meeting "to raise concerns about the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric."
