Trump Returns From Asia Trip, Immediately Attacks The Free Press With Another Lie




Just hours after returning from his nearly two-week, five-nation trip through Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines, President Trump once again attacked the free press with one of his favorite lies.

Trump tweeted: “It is actually hard to believe how naive (or dumb) the Failing @nytimes is when it comes to foreign policy…weak and ineffective!”

Trump has repeatedly attacked the New York Times and claimed that the news organization is “failing” without offering a shred of evidence.

In August, The New York Times fired back at Trump’s false claim saying its business is “thriving.”



“How much longer will the failing nytimes, with its big losses and massive unfunded liability (and non-existent sources), remain in business?” Trump asked on Twitter at the time.

The Times’ public relations team responded to the tweet by citing the number of paid subscribers and rising stock prices.

“That is incorrect. NYT’s business is thriving. Most ever paid subs: 3.3 million; and growing profit, income, and revenues,” The Times tweeted.
