Trump cancels sit-down with The New York Times via angry tweet

Update 10:10 a.m.: Donald Trump's meeting with The New York Times is reportedly back on.

Donald Trump canceled a meeting with The New York Times early Tuesday morning, just hours after a "horrible" sit-down with representatives from major news networks. "I canceled today's meeting with the failing @nytimes when the terms and conditions of the meeting were changed at the last moment," the president-elect tweeted, adding, "Not nice."

The New York Times found out about the cancelation via Trump's tweet. "We did not change the ground rules at all and made no attempt to," the paper said in a statement. "They tried to yesterday — asking for only a private meeting and no on-the-record segment, which we refused to agree to. In the end, we concluded with them that we would go back to the original plan of a small off-the-record session and a larger on-the-record session with reporters and columnists."

The New York Times also noted it has been "a frequent target of [Trump's] criticism." The paper ran a front-page story on Tuesday that raised questions about whether Trump's business dealings were constitutional.

"Perhaps a new meeting will be set up with the @nytimes," Trump added in a follow-up tweet. "In the meantime they continue to cover me inaccurately and with a nasty tone!"
