President Donald Trump told reporters that when he's at the White House, or even in New York City, he doesn't watch much television, and said stories that claim he does are "fake."

"People that don’t know me, they like to say I watch television — people with fake sources," he told reporters aboard Air Force One, reports The Hill. "Believe it or not, even when I’m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television."

He added to the mostly print reporters that he reads "you people" much more than he watches television.

His comments came while he was responding to questions about Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, and about whether he should remain in the special election to fill now-Attorney General Jeff Session's seat.

The president said he has not "seen much about Moore" during his trip to Asia, and that he hasn't "been able to devote much time to it."

On Friday, however, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that the president believes Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore "will do the right thing and step aside" if sexual misconduct allegations against him are true.

A woman, now in her 50s, has accused Moore of engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct with her when she was 14 years old. In addition, three other women have said Moore approached them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.

But while Trump has also insisted in the past that he watches very little television because he has no time for it, he had a 60-inch flat-screen television set put in his private dining room at the White House, according to Time Magazine.

He also often tweets about news reports on Fox News and CNN, particularly in the mornings, while they are on the air.
