Trump: NYT Needs to Get on Knees, Beg

Newser - 04-23


(Newser) – President Trump thinks the New York Times should "get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness." The comment came in a "Twitter rampage" attacking media outlets early Tuesday, per Fox News. Trump wrote that he was deserving of "a far bigger & better apology" than the paper offered in 2016—though bosses only admitted to underestimating support for Trump in the lead-up to the election—adding, "they are truly the Enemy of the People!" Trump went on to suggest he should be free from criticism considering the state of the economy. "In the 'old days' if you were President and you had a good economy, you were basically immune from criticism ... Today I have, as President, perhaps the greatest economy in historyand to the Mainstream Media, it means NOTHING," he wrote.
