President Donald Trump tore into the “New York Times” on Saturday as he delivered a passionate speech to a large crowd in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Trump called out the Times for trying to give him advice on how to run the country. One problem, the Times can barely run their own company.
As Trump pointed out, the Times is hemorrhaging money and struggles to remain relevant in today’s digital age.
Here’s what Trump said:
So just as an example of the media take the totally failing New York Times. Pretty soon they’ll only be on the Internet. The paper is getting smaller and smaller. You ever notice? It’s starting to look like a comic book its getting so small.
But I will tell you because I watched and I used to be in the real estate business. They sold their beautiful New York Times building in Manhattan – a cathedral to journalism, such a beautiful, beautiful building, for around $130 million. And the group that bought it later sold it for approximately $500 million. And now they live in a very ugly office building in a crummy location.
Next they buy the Boston Globe newspaper with losses for $1.3 billion, invest millions and millions and millions of dollars to get it going and in the end they sell it for $0. They give it away.
And then they write nasty editorials and op-eds telling me how I should be handling world events and our country. No.
But that’s what we have – they’re incompetent, dishonest people who after the election had to apologize because they covered it, us, me, all of us – they covered it so badly that they felt they were forced to apologize because their predictions were so bad. Do you remember their predictions? They lost a lot of people because of the way they covered.
So here’s the story, if the media’s job is to be honest and tell the truth, then I think we would all agree the media deserves a very, very big fat failing grade. Very dishonest people.

Ouch, the Times isn’t going to like that.
Trump is right though, the Times is a poorly run business and they have went out of their way to attack him on every single issue.
