After Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cussed out NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly because she challenged him in an interview about defending Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Trump is questioning why NPR exists.

Trump agreed with a tweet from media personality Mark Levin, who labeled the non-profit organization a “big-government, Democrat Party propaganda operation.”

According to NPR’s website, fees paid by NPR’s member stations make up the largest portion of its revenue. Less than 1% of NPR’s annual operating budget is covered by grants from CPB and federal agencies and departments.
