Trump: I don’t watch much television ‘primarily because of documents’

President Trump told reporters Saturday that he doesn’t watch much television while at the White House because he’s busy “reading documents.”

“Believe it or not, even when I’m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One. “People that don’t know me, they like to say I watch television — people with fake sources. You know, fake reporters, fake sources.”

Trump was responding to a question about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) and whether he should continue running in the special election. Trump said he hasn’t “seen much about him” during his Asia trip.

“I haven’t been able to devote very much time to it,” Trump said, adding that he would “have further comment as we go down the road.”

Moore was accused of inappropriate sexual conduct with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s in a Washington Post report this week.

Three other women also told the Post that Moore approached them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.

Trump has previously insisted he has “very little time for watching TV,” though he often tweets about Fox News and CNN segments just after they air live.

Trump also had a 60-inch flat screen TV installed in his private White House dining room, according to Time magazine.
