The White House will order federal agencies to drop their subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post as the administration escalates its battle with the two broadsheets.

“Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving — hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

The two papers declined to comment when contacted by The Journal, which broke the story.

The planned order comes just days after Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity he was canceling the White House’s subscriptions to the two newspapers.

“We don’t even want it in the White House anymore,” Trump told Hannity in an interview that aired Monday night. “We’re going to probably terminate that and the Washington Post. They’re fake.”
