NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- President-elect Donald Trump met with editors and executives of the New York Times on Tuesday afternoon, in a meeting that had at first been canceled using Trump's favorite medium, Twitter. (TWTR)
Earlier in the day Trump had tweeted that he had canceled his meeting with what he called the "failing" New York Times, as the publication was said to have changed the conditions of the meeting at the last moment.
The Times then sent out its own tweet denying the claim. Trump also accused the Times of continuing to cover him "inaccurately and with a nasty tone." Later Trump tweeted that the meeting was back on and set for 12:30 p.m. ET.
Changing his tone from the day's earlier tweets, Trump said he has "great respect" for the New York Times, but did note that its treatment of him had been "very rough," the Times reported after the meeting.
During the meeting Trump also said he wants to turn his relationship with the publication around and that it "would make the job I am doing much easier," New York Times media, TV, and politics reporter Mike Grynbaum tweeted this afternoon.
Various other New York Times reporters tweeted out other snippets from the meeting. Among other points, Trump touched on his 90-minute meeting with President Obama after the election.
Trump believes Obama is "looking to do absolutely the right thing" in terms of the transition from his administration to Trump's. The pair discussed the world's "biggest problems" including one, in particular, that Trump would not elaborate on, according to a tweet from the paper's political correspondent, Maggie Haberman.
