Donald J. Trump / @realdonaldtrump: Had a very good and interesting meeting at the White House with A.G. Sulzberger, Publisher of the New York Times. Spent much time talking about the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, “Enemy of the People.” Sad!

Brent D. Griffiths / Politico: Trump kicks off Sunday with flurry of tweets
Dan Gillmor / @dangillmor: NYT publisher and editorial page editor met with Trump, who insisted it's off the record. Trump then tweeted about it. If NYT doesn't fully disclose everything that was said at this point, it's demonstrating cowardice. This response doesn't come close. http://www.nytco.com/...
Philip Rucker / @philiprucker: My updated story on Trump's escalating feud with the news media. In Twitter tirade, POTUS calls journalists “very unpatriotic” and accuses them of endangering lives, after NYT publisher reveals he warned Trump his dangerous rhetoric could lead to violence. http://www.washingtonpost.com/ ...

Andy Shain / @andyshain: Reporting news you dislike is not “fake news” and does not make the media “the enemy of the people” http://twitter.com/...
Trip Gabriel / @tripgabriel: 1. The publisher of the NYT privately tells Trump his calling journalists ‘enemies of the people’ exposes them to violence, particularly abroad,. 2. Trump breaks otr agreement & repeats the phrase in a tweet, using passive voice to duck his own role in reviving a Nazi-era charge http://twitter.com/...
Ken Olin / @kenolin1: Because Donald Trump is incapable of accurately recounting events that do not promote his outsized ego and would have us all live in a universe devoid of complexity and truth - it's vital we keep a narrative of reality alive. http://www.nytco.com/...
Clara Jeffery / @clarajeffery: This is not hard to understand and I don't get those saying he shouldn't have taken the meeting. http://twitter.com/...
Amarnath Amarasingam / @amaramarasingam: “I repeatedly stressed that this is particularly true abroad, where the president's rhetoric is being used by some regimes to justify sweeping crackdowns on journalists. I warned that it was putting lives at risk.” http://twitter.com/...
Shekhar Gupta / @shekhargupta: Journalist or not, read this exchange. This is how a great media institution like NYT responds to foul-mouthed intimidation by President Trump http://twitter.com/...
Rebecca Watson / @rebeccawatson: I bet if *I* met with the president he wouldn't lie about anything and I could just talk sense to him. (later) oh no http://twitter.com/...
Gerard McDermott / @mcdermottqc: This shows again that DJT cannot be trusted .. he asks for “off record” and goes “on record”. Then he mischaracterises what was said. And completely fails to address the concern that NYT publisher raised with him. Not for the first time ... words fail me. http://twitter.com/...
Josh Feldman / Mediaite: NYT Publisher Sulzberger: I Told Trump in Meeting His Anti-Press Rhetoric Is ‘Increasingly Dangerous’
Renato Mariotti / @renato_mariotti: The publisher of the New York Times met with Trump to explain the dangers of his attacks on the free press. Trump's response was to renew his attacks. Trump's attacks are a deliberate scheme to undermine trust in institutions that can hold him accountable. Treat them that way. http://twitter.com/...
Raju Narisetti / @raju: America, Circa @Potus @realDonaldTrump: When the Publisher of @nytimes has to formally rebut what was said/discussed & the tenor of a private meeting with the President of United States: “New York Times Publisher Rebuts Trump's Account of Private Meeting” http://www.nytimes.com/... http://twitter.com/...
Charles M. Blow / @charlesmblow: There's no such thing as fake news. If something is false it doesn't get printed. If something false slips through, it gets corrected. There is NO SUCH THING as fake news. You label unflattering news fake, but the news about you is horrible because you live your life horribly. http://twitter.com/...
Jim Roberts / @nycjim: 1. Trump meets NYT Publisher on July 20 in off-the-record conversation. 2. Nine days later, Trump decides to break OTR agreement and tweet about it. 3. NYT calls BS on Trump's account, says NYT objected to Trump's “dangerous and harmful” attacks on media. http://www.nytco.com/... http://twitter.com/...
Jake Tapper / @jaketapper: Worth understanding the context here: Earlier this month, WH asked the publisher of the NYT, A.G. Sulzberger, to meet with POTUS. They met July 20 along with editorial page editor James Bennet. Agreement was that the meeting was off the record. 1/ http://twitter.com/...
Kenneth P. Vogel / @kenvogel: Read @AGSNYT's (very different) recollection of this meeting, in which he says he warned TRUMP that his attacks on the media as the “enemy of the people” were putting lives at risk & undermining America's democratic ideals: http://www.nytco.com/... http://twitter.com/...
Jeff Greenfield / @greenfield64: As we've talked about on your CNN show, the President probably believes the conversation took place as he recounts it. His ghostwriter Tony Schwartz keeps reminding us that Trump lives inside a reality of his own creation...way more dangerous than if he just lied. https://twitter.com/...
@narratedpotus: The President of the United States breaks an agreement with the publisher of the New York Times to hold an off-the-record meeting.
Jesse Pesta / @jessepesta: He told the president that he is “undermining the democratic ideals of our nation.” Two different takes on reality here. I wonder* which is accurate? https://www.nytco.com/... *No I don't pic.twitter.com/ujaCm5Rpqp
Zeddy / @zeddary: Media: man it was really stupid for Trump to have a one-on-one meeting with Putin and then let Putin divulge all the supposed details in bad faith. NYT Publisher: Hey I just got an idea.
John McQuaid / @johnmcquaid: It's not like Trump is a normal president who might offer some unvarnished insights into his thinking on big issues in an off-the-record meeting. He has no such insights, and will only use the off-the-record part against you.
Zack Whittaker / @zackwhittaker: it's a difficult one. the meeting and its contents were off the record. Trump broke that agreement by disclosing the meeting happened. I think A.G. is still trying to abide by the “contents” rule — even though the meeting was disclosed. off the record isn't always simple.
Brian Stelter / @brianstelter: NYT publisher A.G. Sulzberger says he challenged Trump about “his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people.’ I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.” http://twitter.com/...
Southpaw / @nycsouthpaw: The thing about this statement is it's only recounting what A.G. Sulzberger said. There's nothing about what the President said in return, or for that matter what editorial page director James Bennet said. https://twitter.com/...
Philip Rucker / @philiprucker: Our updated story on NY Times publisher Sulzberger directly warning Trump — at July 20 White House meeting POTUS requested — that his attacks on journalists could lead to violence https://wapo.st/2Oolfdr
Ashley Feinberg / @ashleyfeinberg: wild to imagine someone could go into this meeting thinking it would end in anything but their humiliation https://twitter.com/...
Ashley Feinberg / @ashleyfeinberg: maybe if we just explain to trump that he's not being nice he'll see the error of his ways and repent

Jamil Smith / @jamilsmith: I have no idea what the @nytimes publisher was thinking. None. Trump deliberately endangers journalists, especially those who are trying to cover his administration.
