Trump Watches CNN and 'Morning Joe' To 'Get Fired Up,' Report Says

President Donald Trump speaks before a meeting in the Oval Office of the White House Thursday Dec. 7 2017 in Washington

However, Trump's supporters were quick to criticize The New York Times' sources, calling it gossip. The president is also said to have a muted TV on in the background throughout the day.

DONALD Trump downs 12 cans of Diet Coke and watches eight hours of news a day according, to White House insiders.

"That would get most Americans fired from their jobs".

In order to get a clearer picture of the US President's day, the publication interviewed 60 advisers, friends and members of Congress, and discovered that apparently he's a bit of a couch potato.

Mr Beyer has previously criticised President Trump for golfing at one of his resorts in the midst of the Hurricane Maria recovery efforts in Puerto Rico while much of the population had no access to clean water, medical supplies, and electricity.

The New York Times published a story that claims Trump often watches late-night Fox News but it appears that he sometimes "hate watches" Don Lemon on CNN as well, all in an effort to get riled up. He occasionally watches MSNBC's "Morning Joe" because it works him up, Trump's friends told the Times.

These habits set the stage for how the "ammunition for his Twitter war is television".

"I do not watch much television", he told reporters aboard Air Force One in November.

The Times also reports that the only people allowed to touch the remote control for the White House television are Trump and White House technical support staffers.

Anything Trump misses, he catches up with on what he calls his "Super TiVO", which records cable news. "I'm reading documents a lot". "People with fake sources-you know, fake reporters, fake sources".

Trump is quoted in the Times piece as calling reports of his copious television binges "fake news", saying that he is kept busy with official White House business. "I know they like to say - people that don't know me - they like to say I watch television".

"I know they like to say-people that don't know me-they like to say I watch television", Trump said.

Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly tries to manage the flow of information to Trump and mitigate the president's fiery outbursts on Twitter.
