Newsweek fired a reporter who wrote an article saying that President Donald Trump would likely be tweeting and golfing on Thanksgiving, according to a statement.
Jessica Kwong, a former Newsweek political reporter covering the Trump administration, wrote an article originally titled “How Is Trump Spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, Golfing And More” on Thursday. The article was published at 10:16 a.m., a few hours before news broke that the president was actually in Afghanistan visiting troops.
The outlet fired Kwong after the mishap, a spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation on Friday evening.
