Trump wrote:

The failing NY Times Fake News story today about breastfeeding must be called out. The U.S. strongly supports breastfeeding but we don’t believe women should be denied access to formula.

The president added that he also understands the option of infant feeding with a formula, as many women need it due to malnutrition or poverty.
