President Donald Trump doled out some wisdom for The New York Times’ new publisher in a series of Tuesday tweets.

Trump has maintained a contentious public relationship with TheNYT while simultaneously to sit down with the paper for extensive exclusive interviews throughout his tenure as a candidate and while in office. Sulzberger is the sixth member of his family to hold the post since 1896 and recently authored a note to readers on his vision for the paper. The new publisher decried rising “misinformation” and admitted ” trust in the media is declining.”

Sulzberger appears to take several shots at the president noting that “politicians jockey for advantage by inflaming suspicion of the press” and that “a dangerous confluence of forces is threatening the press’s central role in helping people understand and engage with the world around them.”

He vowed “to continue to put the fairness and accuracy of everything we publish above all else — and in the inevitable moments we fall short, we will continue to own up to our mistakes, and we’ll strive to do better.”
