That New York Times article has Trump is full ranting meltdown mode. Mediaite recaps:
We knew all along Donald Trump hated the media. We knew he wanted to loosen those libel laws. But we didn’t have confirmation until today just how ignorant he is about freedom of the press.
Trump went on yet another anti-mainstream media tweetstorm today, which capped off with kind of an amazing declaration: “It is not ‘freedom of the press’ when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!” That is literally the definition of freedom of the press.
And earlier today:
CNN’s Brian Stelter opened today’s Reliable Sources with a very lengthy showdown with Donald Trump senior communications advisor Jason Miller over what Stelter deemed was Trump’s “anti-media campaign.”
Miller spent the first part of the segment complaining about the New York Times report on internal campaign chaos––a report Trump has trashed––and going so far as to say, “I wish people would cancel their subscriptions to The New York Times.”
Stelter asked him if this isn’t just an example of a true story that’s just “painful to read.” Miller insisted the campaign is unified.
