US President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to attack the New York Times after they had published an article that focused on his television viewing habits.

“Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting,” Trump tweeted on Monday.

Trump was reacting to a NYTimes article published on Saturday that looked at his typical day, alleging that he watched at least four hours of news per day by watching CNN or MSNBC.
