Trump vows that The New York Times ‘will be gone’ in six years

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at The New York Times for their Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of his administration.

The New York Times sanctuary cities/immigration story today was knowingly wrong on almost every fact,” Trump argued.

“They never call to check for truth,” he claimed.

“Their sources often don’t even exist, a fraud. They will lie and cheat anyway possible to make me look bad. In six years they will be gone,” he said.

“When I won the election in 2016, [The New York Times] had to beg their fleeing subscribers for forgiveness in that they covered the election (and me) so badly. They didn’t have a clue, it was pathetic. They even apologized to me. But now they are even worse, really corrupt reporting,” he added.

Trump’s claims were immediately called into question by New York Times White House reporter Maggie Haberman.

“[The president] really ought to check in with his press team more often, or they with him. NYT emailed three times for comment and press office acknowledged receipt of emails,” Haberman noted.

Conservative pollster Frank Luntz noted The New York Times “added 132,000 new subscribers the week after Trump’s victory in 2016.”

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

ABC News reporter Kyra Phillips on Saturday heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his treatment of the press.

Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
