WASHINGTON &mdash On the first couple&rsquos recent trip overseas, Melania Trump&rsquos television aboard Air Force One was tuned to CNN. President Trump was not pleased.

He raged at his employees for violating a rule that the White Home entourage must commence every trip tuned to Fox &mdash his preferred network more than what he considers the &ldquofake news&rdquo CNN &mdash and triggered &ldquoa bit of a stir&rdquo aboard Air Force A single, according to an e-mail obtained by The New York Times. The e mail, an internal exchange among officials in the White Residence Military Workplace and the White Home Communications Agency final Thursday, also referred to as for the ordering of two additional televisions to support Beam, a TiVo-like streaming device, to make sure the president and first lady could both watch Tv in their separate hotel rooms when they travel.

At the end of the e mail chain, officials confirmed that tuning the TVs to Fox would be common operating procedure going forward.

The channel-flipping flap was the newest instance of how Mr. Trump, at a pivotal moment in his presidency, is increasingly living in a planet of chosen details and bending the truth to his own narrative. As his aides operate to keep him insulated from the outdoors planet, Mr. Trump is doubling down in his efforts to tell supporters to trust him over the words of critics and news reports.

In his tweet, Mr. Trump made no mention of the truth that he has been told repeatedly that Russia ordered a series of attacks to sway the 2016 election. Nor did he say that he has struck a conciliatory view toward Mr. Putin even as his administration and Congress have moved to impose harsher relations.

More than the weekend, Mr. Trump claimed with no proof in a series of tweets that his administration&rsquos release of top-secret documents associated to the surveillance of a former campaign aide had confirmed that the Justice Division and the F.B.I. &ldquomisled the courts&rdquo in the early stages of the Russia investigation.

But the documents appeared to do the opposite. They presented in stark detail why the F.B.I. was interested in the former campaign adviser, Carter Web page: &ldquoThe F.B.I. believes Page has been the topic of targeted recruitment by the Russian government.&rdquo The documents also stated Mr. Web page had &ldquoestablished relationships with Russian government officials, which includes Russian intelligence officers,&rdquo and had been &ldquocollaborating and conspiring with the Russian government.&rdquo

Analysts, which includes Stephen I. Vladeck, a professor who specializes in national safety law at the University of Texas College of Law, said the president was &ldquocherry picking&rdquo bits of the warrant that would be most useful to him.

In the White Residence, little of the outdoors criticism breaks via. People who have worked for Mr. Trump say he tends to view every little thing by means of the lens of a battle. His aim is bring absolutely everyone more than to his view.
