Donald Trump rescinding credentials from The Washington Post to cover his events is "a minor bump in the road," said associate editor Bob Woodward, who added the newspaper will continue to intensively report on the presumptive Republican nominee.
Speaking on MSNBC's
"Morning Joe", Woodward defended the Post's coverage of Trump as aggressive but fair and said it would continue that way.
"In one form or another, we've all been there where people don't like coverage or they revoke this or say they are not going to be interviewed and you just keep on, and so I'm not worried about that," Woodward said.
"The goal has to be keep at it. Find out more," Woodward told MSNBC. "There's so many questions about Trump that have not been answered. The same with Hillary Clinton. So just keep digging and this is kind of a minor bump in the road."
When asked why he thought Trump made the move, Woodward said Trump knows exactly what he is doing. "Let's face it, [the press is] mistrusted by people in the country, so by targeting us one way or the other" Trump believes he can score some points with the public.
points out this is not the first time during this campaign that Trump has used similar tactics, as he has already sanctioned several other news outlets he deemed unfair. The main goal is to send a message and please his base, which doesn't like or trust the press.
