President-elect Donald Trump and the news media are settling into an uneasy relationship.
At the same time, Trump in his Tuesday meeting with reporters and editors at The New York Times offered an olive branch, acknowledging that he’s a longtime reader and pledging a willingness to develop a professional working relationship.
“I would like to turn it around,” Trump said. “I think it would make the job I am doing much easier.”
Trump’s words may do little to assuage the press’s fears.
White House reporters are worried about access to Trump, who didn’t allow reporters on his campaign plane and ditched media staking out Trump Tower last week to have dinner with family at New York’s 21 Club.
The president-elect’s frequent threats to the press have added to a sense that the rules for covering this White House might be different.
