How Trump once trolled the Washington Post

In the event you haven’t figured it out but, President Trump likes to mess with the media.

Plenty of instances, he’s justified, as as of late when many of the mainstream media is being extremely biased towards him.

However there have been instances when Trump toys with the press only for sport. Let me let you know a narrative.

The president as soon as owned the Trump Shuttle, which had routes in Boston, New York and Washington. In 1992, I bought a tip that he was going to promote the airline. I known as Trump, and he confirmed that my tip was true.

On the time, I used to be promoting my column to the Washington Submit and different papers. As a result of Trump Shuttle flew to Washington, the Washington Submit needed to substantiate my story and run it as its personal. It was large information.

I instructed my editor down in DC that it was OK with me. I additionally revealed that Trump had confirmed the story, and I prompt reporter ought to name him.

The Washington Submit did name Trump and he denied the story, which made me look silly — however just for a few days.

One week later, Trump bought the shuttle — simply as I had predicted. The Washington Submit missed the story and, I believe, had its flip at feeling silly.

Anyway, Trump most likely had a superb snort. Lately, he’s everywhere in the Washington Submit on any variety of critical points. However Trump doesn’t really want a critical matter to choose a battle — he’ll joust with the press over virtually something.
