President Donald Trump often watches the late-night Fox News Channel lineup, but sometimes tunes in CNN for "hate-watches", especially host Don Lemon, to get riled up, according to The New York Times. "I know they like to say - people that don't know me - they like to say I watch television". "People with fake sources-you know, fake reporters, fake sources".
