    US President Donald Trump has described the media barred from an informal briefing on Friday as a danger to the nation, in a posting on social media networks.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — His attacks at US and international media came after the New York Times, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, Daily Mail, BBC, and New York Daily News were all blocked from a briefing held by White House spokesman Sean Spicer.

    ​The Time magazine and the Associated Press network boycotted the meeting, known as a gaggle. The CBS, NBC, Fox, Reuters, and Bloomberg were among those allowed to attend. When asked why others were excluded, Spicer said he wanted to expand the pool of reporters, according to the BBC.
