President Donald Trump once again lashed out against the press in a series of tweets on Tuesday morning, stressing a common theme of his presidency that the news media criticizes him in an unfair and unprecedented manner.
“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,” Trump wrote in his first tweet of the day. “He is obsessed with hatred, just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is. He said Market would crash, Only Record Highs!”
He followed that up with another tweet in which he wrote, “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!”
As Politico pointed out, Trump frequently claims that the Times apologized to him for its coverage following his election victory, but the paper repeatedly denies that, instead emphasizing that it wrote a letter to readers pledging the paper would rededicate itself to investigating the driving forces of the election and wondered whether Trump’s “sheer unconventionality lead us and other news outlets to underestimate his support among American voters.”
In continued barbs at the press, the president wrote in yet another tweet that “The Radical Left Democrats, together with their leaders in the Fake News Media, have gone totally insane! I guess that means that the Republican agenda is working.”
He also claimed in a further tweet that “in the ‘old days’ if you were President and you had a good economy, you were basically immune from criticism.”
