Ever since Donald Trump had declared that he would officially run for the office of the President of the United States of America (USA) he has been the favorite child of media. Most experts and analysts have opined that the US Presidential elections of 2016 have been the most biased and one sided from media perspective. In other words, often the American media have been criticised for giving one sided coverage favoring he Democrat nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton and somehow demonising the Republican candidate, billionaire Donald J Trump.

Donald Trump have often referred to those favoring Hillary Clinton as ‘cheerleaders’ and New York Times (NYT) was one among them. On the November 9 when the final results came out, the headline of the NYT seemed to be a grudging one which said, “Democrats, students and foreign allies face the reality of a Trump presidency.”

Out of all the uncertainties, President-elect Donald Trump has finally agreed to meet and interact with the reporters and editors of this veteran institution of journalism. Let us take a look how the interaction took place.

At the start of the meeting, NYTimes’ Julie Davis tweeted, Asked point-blank about Nazi conference in DC over wknd: @realDonaldTrump tells @nytimes “of course” “I disavow and condemn them.”

On whether he read NYT, the ever sarcastic Trump said, “I do read it. Unfortunately. I’d live about 20 years longer if I didn’t.” as tweetd by Mike Grynbaum of the NYT.

NYTimes’ Presidential campaign correspondent Maggie Haberman tweeted some important conversation that happened with President-elect Donald Trump.

Maggie Haberman ‏@maggieNYT : “I don’t think we should be a nation-builder,” Trump says of the US role in the world. “Syria, we have to solve that problem,” Trump says. Adds he has a “different view than everybody else. We have to end that craziness that’s going on in Syria.”
