The New York Times is pumping an extra $5 million into its coverage of the Donald Trump's presidency, according to a new report outlining the paper's newsroom strategy.

"This is not just a story of transformed government agencies. It is also about the stability of the global order that has prevailed since World War II and America's place in that world," Times executive editor Dean Baquet and managing editor Joe Kahn write.

"It is about what happens when a group of business moguls who built empires bring their free market philosophy to bear on everything from education to healthcare and national defense, and how that philosophical change will affect people's lives.

"It is also a story about power in New York, as one of the biggest names in one of our largest industries actually takes over the country, often running it from from a penthouse on a heavily guarded Fifth Avenue."

Baquet and Kahn say the beefed-up coverage, which will include the hiring of more investigative journalists and experts on taxes, immigration, education and climate change, is essential to the Times' ongoing success.

"Even in these difficult financial times for our industry, the entire company has a commitment to this story. It is not only our mission. It is vital to our business," they say.

"Our dominance on this story of a changing America will ensure our position as the essential news organization for years to come."
