Trump met with the New York Times Tuesday, where he discussed a plethora of topics with the editorial board and top reporters. (RELATED: Trump Unleashes Hilarious Tweet Storm Against NYT)

Trump denounced the white nationalist movement, while the media continues to give the fringe group added oxygen by spending so much air-time on the topic.
