WASHINGTON — Journalists from The New York Times and two other news organizations were prohibited from attending a briefing by President Trump’s press secretary on Friday, a highly unusual breach of relations between the White House and its press corps.

Reporters from The Times, CNN and Politico were not allowed to enter the West Wing office of the press secretary, Sean M. Spicer, for the scheduled briefing. Aides to Mr. Spicer allowed in reporters from only a handpicked group of news organizations that, the White House said, had been previously confirmed to attend.

Organizations allowed in included Breitbart News, the One America News Network and The Washington Times, all with conservative leanings. Journalists from ABC, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and Fox News also attended.


Speaking to reporters at Mar-a-lago in Florida on Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he’ll name Lt. Gen. H.R McMaster as national security adviser.

Acting national security adviser Keith Kellogg will be chief of staff for the National Security Council, according to the White House pool report.

Trump called McMaster “a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience.”

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned last week amid revelations that he discussed U.S. sanctions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the month before Trump took office. The former national security adviser admitted that he briefed Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials with “incomplete information,” which they then shared in cable news interviews.
