When Air Force One took off to transport Donald Trump and his wife Melania to the Great Britain on the start of their recent official trip abroad, Trump erupted into a rage when he saw his wife’s on-board television screen tuned to the cable news station CNN, according to a report by the New York Times on Tuesday.

The Times reported that it had “obtained” an internal White House email that detailed Trump’s angry outburst, which “caused a bit of a stir” aboard the official presidential plane, according to the report by Katie Rogers and Maggie Haberman published online late Tuesday. Their report said that Trump demands that all TV screens on board the aircraft should be tuned exclusively to Fox News, Trump’s favorite network, at the start of each flight.

Rogers and Haberman also revealed in their report that Donald and Melania Trump occupy separate hotel rooms when they travel together, and that the White House staff recently ordered two new television sets that would support the streaming platform Beam, “to make sure (Trump) and (Melania) could both watch TV in their separate hotel rooms when they travel.” The Beam platform, produced by Microsoft, is actually now branded with the name Mixer, according to the technology site TechCrunch.
