    US President-elect Donald Trump criticized The New York Times newspaper for "poor" and "inaccurate" coverage of what he called "Trump phenomena."

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Trump added that the newspaper had sent a letter to its subscribers apologizing for "bad coverage" of the president-elect.

    "Wow, the @nytimes is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the 'Trump phenomena,'" Trump said on his Twitter account.

    On Tuesday, Trump secured at least 290 Electoral College votes, which is more than 270 required to win the presidency.

    During the presidential race, a number of US media outlets, including The New York Times were critical of the Republican candidate's policy. On Friday the newspaper publisher Arthur Sulzberger sent an editorial letter to the outlet's readers saying that The New York Times believed that it had covered Trump "fairly" and promising to "rededicate" themselves to the "fundamental mission" of journalism.

    Ahead of the election day, the president-elect, who was known for his sometimes controversial statements made on social media, when he could even criticize other individuals and entities, had minimized his social media activities.
