President Donald Trump is canceling the White House’s subscriptions to The Washington Post and The New York Times, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham confirmed to reporters on Tuesday.

Trump told Fox News prime-time host Sean Hannity on Monday that he didn’t want the two papers in the White House anymore.
