Report: Trump upset over being banned from reading far-right news

loading...

The new White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly, has started to change the way things are run in the West Wing – including the president’s reading material. 

The New York Times reports Trump has complaining about the lack of conservative news sources coming across his desk. Trump’s phone apparently does not have internet access and that he doesn’t use a laptop computer, so he relies on hard copies of articles being delivered to him. 

In recent weeks, John Kelly has reportedly limited the amount of printouts delivered to Trump, causing him to ask aides about the whereabouts of articles from right-wing sites like Breitbart and The Daily Caller.

The president reportedly complained to a friend about the lack of articles, but the president still reportedly has not yet been cut off from at least one right-leaning news source. Kelly hasn’t been able to keep Trump from constantly watching FOX News. 

Despite rumors of Trump’s dissatisfaction with his new chief of staff and possible reading restrictions, the president has been taking to his favorite communication outlet to voice his support for Kelly.

“General John Kelly is doing a great job as Chief of Staff,” he tweeted on Friday.
