The National Labor Relations Board is set to take its first vote on the proposed merger of two of the country’s largest newspapers.
The board will vote on Monday to approve the merger of the Boston Globe and the New York Times.
The merger would create the largest newspaper group in the United States, the biggest in the world, and potentially a potential headache for Mr Trump, who has threatened to block the deal if the two newspapers fail to meet his requirements.
The Globe and Times already control the most popular newspaper titles in the US, with more than three million readers.
The New York Post and The Wall Street Journal currently hold the largest circulation newspapers in the country.
The NLRB is the nation’s highest court that hears cases related to union-related issues and the rights of workers.
The commission is currently considering the merger proposal and is expected to vote on it in a matter of weeks.
The Boston Globe was founded in 1772 and is one of the oldest newspapers in America.
It has a circulation of about 5.4 million and has more than 700 staff members.
The NYT has about 12 million monthly readers.
