Donald Trump is still upset at how the media portrays him, so much so that he tweeted that the New York Times will have to, “get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness.”
“I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election,” Trump tweeted. “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 well as tweeting, “In the “old days” if you were President and you had a good economy, you were basically immune from criticism. Remember, ‘It’s the economy stupid.’ Today I have, as President, perhaps the greatest economy in history… and to the Mainstream Media, it means NOTHING. But it will!”
Donald Trump’s mention of a first apology seems to be in reference to an article written in the New York Times right after his election in which the author states that the media “underestimated” Trump “support among American voters.” The article also says that they believed the media reported on both candidates fairly but many Republicans oppose that claim.
These tweets maybe stemming from the fact that a Times op-ed suggested that Democrats and the media owe Trump an apology for all the collusion pushing it did it in the media.
