President Donald Trump took aim at a New York Times reporter Friday morning as reports about his alleged corruption continue to surface.
Peter Baker wrote a story for the Times in which he reported on the July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. The piece painted a concerning picture of Trump, who is alleged to have used his office for political gain by trying to persuade Ukraine to investigate his 2020 rival Joe Biden.
Trump said Baker's work should not be taken seriously.
"Obama loving (wrote Obama book) Peter Baker of the Failing New York Times, married to an even bigger Trump Hater than himself, should not even be allowed to write about me. Every story is a made up disaster with sources and leakers that don't even exist. I had a simple and very.." Trump wrote on Twitter.
"…..nice call with with the new President of Ukraine, it could not have been better or more honorable, and the Fake News Media and Democrats, working as a team, have fraudulently made it look bad. It wasn't bad, it was very legal and very good. A continuing Witch Hunt!" he added.
Democrats officially launched an impeachment inquiry this week as they probe corruption allegations raised in a whistleblower complaint that stemmed from the phone call. Trump and his allies are using a full-court press to discredit the whistleblower and Democrats.
