Donald Trump briefly canceled a meeting Tuesday with New York Times journalists, claiming that its terms were suddenly changed.
The charge was made in the obfuscatory style that has come to mark Trump's tweets. He said only that the terms of the meeting were changed, not who changed them; the paper said Trump, not anyone on its side, had requested new terms after the meeting was set.
The meeting was supposed to have included both a private discussion, similar to one Trump had Monday with television news network executives, and a segment where reporters were free to quote Trump by name. The Times said Trump later asked for the meeting to be fully private, a request the newspaper refused.
