Donald Trump fired back at the New York Times over a hit piece the Old Grey Lady ran this weekend about his 2020 campaign fundraising operation.
The Times article claims that the campaign hatched an “intentional scheme to boost revenues by the Trump campaign and the for-profit company that processed its online donations, WinRed.”
“The tactic ensnared scores of unsuspecting Trump loyalists — retirees, military veterans, nurses and even experienced political operatives,” the report claimed. “Soon, banks and credit card companies were inundated withfraud complaints from the president’s own supporters about donations they had not intended to make, sometimes for thousands of dollars.”
On Monday, Donald Trump blasted out an email response.
“In yet another highly partisan story, the failing New York Times wrote a completely misleading, one-sided attack piece this weekend that tried to disparage our record-setting grassroots fundraising operation during the 2020 campaign,” Trump said. “Except for massive voter fraud, this was a campaign that was easily won by your favorite Republican President, me!”
“Our support in 2020 was so big – never before seen (received more votes than any sitting President in history, by far), that it has become a major threat to the Democrat Party, which explains why the New York Times immediately rushed to defend their Radical Left allies.”
“Before our two campaigns, 2016 and 2020, Republicans would always lose small dollar donations,” he went on. “Now we win, or do very well, because we are the Party of Working Americans, and we beat the Democrats at their own game.”
