Trump Lashes Out at NY Times for Report on Him Questioning Pence’s Loyalty: ‘Phony Story’

President Donald Trump took a few questions from reporters before heading to California this morning, and he went on a tear against The New York Times when one reporter asked about their report yesterday on him and Vice President Mike Pence.

Per the Times, Trump has been asking people around him whether Pence is loyal to a surprising degree.

But Trump insisted this morning “I don’t question his loyalty at all.”

“He is 100% loyal,” the President said. “It was a phony story. I doubt they had any sources. A typical New York Times phony story. Mike Pence is 100%. Not even a doubt about it in my mind. He’s been a trooper.”

He again called it a “phony story” and said they never called him for comment, calling it “fake news” as a result.
