The Hill reports:
President Trump lashed out at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute on Sunday night following a report that it had requested the Trump campaign stop using former President Reagan’s name and image in fundraising.
Trump made the remarks in a tweet that also shared a post pointing out that the Reagan Foundation’s chairman, Frederick Ryan Jr., is the publisher and CEO of The Washington Post.
The tweet came after the Post first reported that the foundation had called on Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) to stop using Reagan’s name and image.
So the Washington Post is running the Reagan Foundation, and RINO Paul Ryan is on the Board of Fox, which has been terrible. We will win anyway, even with the phony @FoxNews suppression polls (which have been seriously wrong for 5 years)! https://t.co/fOi3AROxuz

“The Ronald Reagan Foundation’s Board of Trustees is comprised of members of the Reagan Administration including former Cabinet members and prominent business and civic leaders who are dedicated to promoting the legacy of our nation’s fortieth president.”

Trump campaign email that led the Reagan Foundation to ask them to stop: “Unfortunately, we already sold out of the first batch we had in stock. But I liked these coins so much that I asked my team to rush order another batch for my TOP SUPPORTERS ONLY.”https://t.co/FRIBHm3CE5

He is, and people are not happy about it. The Washington Post is a political front for Amazon. Nobody treated Ronald Reagan worse! https://t.co/Op2UnQ5uWj
