Trump's 'phony' source turns out to be White House official

Trump's 'phony' source turns out to be White House official

President Donald Trump accused The New York Times on Saturday of inventing a source for a story who, in fact, was a White House official conducting a briefing for reporters under the condition that the official not be named. Trump tweeted that the Times quoted an official 'who doesn't exist' and referenced a line in the story about a possible summit with North Korea, which read: 'a senior White House official told reporters that even if the meeting were reinstated, holding it on June 12 would be impossible, given the lack of time and the amount of planning needed.' Said Trump: 'WRONG AGAIN! Use real people, not phony sources.' The Times reported in a story about the tweet that it had cited 'a senior White House official speaking to a large group of reporters in the White House briefing room.' The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Trump has repeatedly criticized the use of unnamed sources and labeled information related by unnamed officials 'fake news.' Still, his White House regularly arranges briefings with officials who demand anonymity before relaying information, a practice also used by previous administrations. While Trump asserted the official did not exist, he also took issue with how the Times paraphrased the remarks. When asked at the briefing, which was attended by The Associated Press, if it was possible for the summit to go forward by June 12, the official cast doubt, but did not give a definitive answer. 'I think that the main point, I suppose, is that the ball is in North Korea's court right now. There's really not a lot of time,' the official said. 'There's a certain amount of actual dialogue that needs to take place at the working level with your counterparts to ensure that the agenda is clear in the minds of those two leaders when they sit down to actually meet and talk and negotiate and hopefully make a deal. And June 12 is in ten minutes.' The White House press office invited reporters to the background briefing, both to attend in person or to call-in and insisted that the official not be named. The AP reporter in attendance questioned why the briefing was not on the record — meaning that the official's name could be used. The official said the president had been talking publicly during the day, as well as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and that the briefing was intended to provide 'background context.

Democrats try to seize on jump in gasoline prices

While the Trump Administration has hailed economic and job gains over the past year and a half, the price of gasoline has jumped by over 50 cents on average in the last six months, adding to the cost of everything from a daily commute, to a summer vacation, and the amount of money companies pay to ship their products around the country.

And that increase is starting to be used by Democrats on Capitol Hill to take aim at the White House.

“Gas prices have risen more than 25% since Trump took office,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR).
