President Trump said he was “sure” that he will receive a confirmation from The New York Times in 2020 for the presidential elections, he said in a tweet on Sunday evening.
His tweet was tongue in cheek.
“The New York Times wants out of the business soon after I left the office, hopefully, in 6 years,” Trump tweeted after returning to the White house from vacation on his golf club in Bedminster, N. J.
“You have Zero credibility and lose a fortune, even now, especially after their massive unfunded liability. I’m pretty sure they support me to keep it all going!”

Trump also Sen. Ted Cruz, said argues, have retweeted, the Time was “self-destructed w/ Trump hatred.”
“It is ultimately bad for the freedom of the press, to be ‘journalists’ openly revel in partisan propagandists,” Cruz wrote. “If our Nation is so tribalised that each side is talking their own “news” & “facts”, and we are together once.”
