Is the first reference in any article also Mr or is the title given? The NYT has long had a policy of using titles on first mention of anybody and then not repeating the titles after that.

RE: "Mr. Trump"
I still can't stomach the idea that he is actually going to be fucking president.
I don't refer to him as anything other than trump.

He doesn't deserve the respect of a Mr. or even a capitol letter. I don't give a flying fuck if this is immature. lol

I suppose Mr. is better than 'The Donald'. Confused

After a casual browse through today's issue, it looks like this is what they're doing. First mention is either "President-elect Trump" or "Donald J. Trump" or both, and then "Mr. Trump" for the rest of the article. Same with Obama.
