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

Published

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.”

Moderator: "You've said you'll release your tax returns, but why do Democrats have to wait?"

Bloomberg: "We do business around the world. The document will be thousands of pages. I can't go to TurboTax."

Trump wants Ric Grenell to keep his ambassador job while also overseeing every intelligence agency: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was reported to be planning to appoint U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence — a position for which he has zero qualifications. The move raised immediate fears, given that Grenell is a hardline Trump loyalist.

But it doesn't stop there. Reports also suggest that the president intends for Grenell to keep serving as Ambassador to Germany at the same time as he is overseeing every U.S. intelligence agency.

‘You lost me’: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez graciously defuses confrontational question

Published

on

In an appearance on ABC's popular daytime talk show "The View" Wednesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke about what she called a "disconnect" between centrist, establishment members of the Democratic Party and progressive lawmakers who have been viewed as agitators in the party.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said that while she had applauded Ocasio-Cortez's surprise victory in her 2018 primary against Wall Street-backed former Rep. Joe Crowley, she has since cooled on the lawmaker due to what she views as a dismissal of baby boomers' past activism. Ocasio-Cortez has pushed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to back a Green New Deal, called on her fellow Democrats to support Medicare for All, and criticized Democrats who take big-money donations from the financial, for-profit healthcare, and fossil fuel sectors.
