  • President Donald Trump reportedly grew upset after
    first lady Melania Trump’s TV aboard Air Force One was set to
    CNN. 
  • Trump and his advisers  have a rule where each of
    their trips starts by tuning into Fox News, according
    to The New York Times.
  • The incident reportedly caused “a bit of a stir,”
    and White House officials discussed ordering additional
    televisions so that Trump and Melania could watch them in their
    separate hotel rooms.

President Donald Trump fumed during his recent European tour with
first lady Melania Trump after staff reportedly violated his rule
and failed to change the TV channels aboard Air Force One to Fox
News.

Instead of Fox News, White House staffers reportedly had
Melania’s TV set to CNN, The New York Times reported
Tuesday.

Trump and his advisers reportedly have a rule in which each of
their trips starts out by tuning into Fox News, according to an
email chain between the White House Military Office and the White
House Communications agency that was seen by The Times.

The incident reportedly caused “a bit of a stir” aboard Air Force
One, according to the emails, and White House officials discussed
ordering additional TVs so that Trump and Melania could watch
them in their separate hotel rooms once they landed.

The emails concluded by noting that all TVs should be set to Fox
News in the future, The Times reported.

Trump frequently rails against networks he considers biased
against his presidency, including CNN, which he has dubbed “fake
news CNN” in numerous speeches and tweets. At a convention for
the Veterans of Foreign Wars on Tuesday, Trump warned the
audience not to “believe the crap you see from these people, the
fake news.”
