The New York Post: N.Y. Times publisher warns Trump his anti-media attacks could lead to violence

The publisher of the New York Times on Sunday said he warned President Trump that his repeated attacks on the “fake news” media are “divisive” and could lead to violence.

“I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous,” A.G. Sulzberger said in a statement released just hours after Trump tweeted about their White House meeting.
