Both news sites, however, offer free digital memberships to anyone with an email address ending in .gov, .edu, or .mil.
Trump is reportedly taking advantage of the digital version of the papers he claims to hate and swears he wants nothing to do with.
"Sources familiar with the president's iPhone told Axios that the president maintains a digital portal to the two newspapers he recently banished from the West Wing," Axios reported.
Trump has ranted about the unfriendly coverage for refusing to publish stories using his talking points instead of factual information.
