‘They don’t write good’: Donald Trump calls The New York Times an ‘absolute disaster’
Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at The New York Times, which he said was an “absolute disaster” because the reporters were unable to “write good.”
“The media is very unfair, they are very biased,” Trump said of the coverage of his attacks on the Khan family. “You look at CNN and you look at The New York Times. I call it the failing New York Times because it won’t be in business for more than probably a few years unless somebody goes in a buys it that wants to lose a lot of money.”
Singling out the Times as “so unfair”, Trump noted that the paper wrote “three or four articles about me a day.”
“No matter how good I do on something, they’ll never write good,” he said. “I mean, they don’t write good. They have people over there like [presidential campaign correspondent] Maggie Haberman and others, they don’t write good.”
“They don’t know how to write good,” Trump charged. “And I guess if they did, they’re certainly not doing it. But The New York Times is just absolutely a disaster.”
