President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump takes shot at new GOP candidate in Ohio over Cleveland nickname GOP political operatives indicted over illegal campaign contribution from Russian national in 2016 On The Money — Dems dare GOP to vote for shutdown, default MORE reportedly asked for multiple televisions to be placed in his White House bedroom.
Trump wanted two additional TVs in his bedroom to accompany the one that was already there, according to excerpts from Michael Wolff’s upcoming book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
Trump has frequently clashed with the media over how much television he watches. In December, Trump pushed back on a New York Times story saying that he has a "prodigious" viewing habit, calling it "wrong!"
“Believe it or not, even when I’m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television,” Trump told reporters last year. "People that don’t know me, they like to say I watch television — people with fake sources. You know, fake reporters, fake sources.”
The president also requested that he get a lock on his door, but the Secret Service pushed back, saying they wanted access to his room, according to the book.
A passage from the upcoming book describes the White House as a “vexing,” and even scary, place for Trump. The book notes that Trump has his own bedroom, which is the first time a presidential couple has had separate bedrooms since the Kennedy administration.
The excerpt also claims that Trump yelled at housekeepers for picking up shirts off the floor.
“If my shirt is on the floor, it’s because I want it on the floor,” Trump reportedly told the housekeeping staff.
Trump also established new rules about his room and possessions. He instructed that nobody touch his belongings — particularly his toothbrush. He also said he would let housekeeping know when he wanted his sheets cleaned and that he would strip his own bed.
