According to a report from Axios, President Trump is very specific about how and where he gets his news.
Trump is a traditionalist. He does not not like using a phone or computer to get his news. He prefers reading the papers.
He starts the morning with The New York Times and New York Post. Trump also skims through The Wall Street Journal. According to theHill.com, now that he’s in DC he is now reading The Washington Post.
His aides reportedly subscribed to an electronic clipping service before Trump’s campaign so they could print out articles with mentions of the president’s name.
Trump uses a black sharpie to highlight articles that catch his eye, especially the ones that mention him directly. If the article warrants a response, he will use the sharpie to make a note on the article itself. He will then have the note sent off to the writer.
Although he appears to be a Twitter junkie, he doesn’t scroll throw his feed. If and when he tweets from his account he often dictates the message to an aide who will publish it on his behalf.
In the mornings, it is said Trump begins his day with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and then moves over to “Fox and Friends.” He closes out with CNN.
When the weekend rolls around, he enjoys watching the Sunday morning talk shows, especially NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
He is said to really enjoy “60 Minutes.” He likes it so much so that he will often record the program and believes it is awesome to appear as a guest. According to Axios, “He loves being one of Barbara Walters’ ’10 Most Fascinating People’ of the year.”
Trump rarely reads books and doesn’t use his phone for anything but making calls, the report said.
“He’s an analog guy,” one top adviser said.
