Trump Get’s Fact-Checked By Multiple Reporters After Claiming WH Source Cited In NYT ‘Doesn’t Exist’

Donald Trump attacked The New York Times over the weekend after they cited an official White House briefing in a new report. But Trump’s claims were false and ABC News correspondent Alex Mallin quickly de-bunked the president.

Trump tried discrediting the Times for citing a person that “doesn’t exist.” But the truth is that that person does exist and Trump doesn’t want people to know the truth.

The Times’ reporters were shocked that the president would completely make something up to attack them.

“Imagine being the WH background briefer who led this briefing, who now has his boss – the president of the US – saying he/she doesn’t exist,” reporter Maggie Haberman suggested.

“The president of the United States is now claiming that his own White House briefings are fake news and that an official his White House put in the briefing room ‘doesn’t exist,’” noted Peter Baker.

Other reporters from different publications took a jab at Trump’s claims.

“Doesn’t seem like there’s any reason to honor WH demands for anonymous briefings if the WH is going to then claim their own briefings are fake news,” argued NBC News reporter Benjy Sarlin.

Yashar Ali, who writes for New York Magazine and the Huffington Post, went as far as to pointing out the official to be Matt Pottinger, who serves on the National Security Council.
