President Donald Trump tweeted that The New York Times should “get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness” for its negative coverage of his presidency.
“I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election. But this one will have to be a far bigger & better apology. On this one they will have to get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness—they are truly the Enemy of the People!” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.
NYT’s opinion columnist Paul Krugman also was the focus of Trump, following a recent piece he wrote claiming the GOP no longer believes in American values.
“Paul Krugman of the Fake News New York Times, has lost all credibility, as has the Times itself, with his false and highly inaccurate writings on me. He is obsessed with hatred, just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is. He said Market would crash, Only Record Highs!” Trump tweeted.
The president also criticized the coverage he has received from the mainstream media on the whole tweeting, “The Radical Left Democrats, together with their leaders in the Fake News Media, have gone totally insane!”
