President Trump said he is certain that he will receive an endorsement from The New York Times in 2020 for the presidential election, he said in a tweet Sunday night.
His tweet appeared to be tongue in cheek.
The New York Times will be out of business soon after I leave office, hopefully in 6 years, Trump tweeted after returning to the White House from a vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. They have Zero credibility and are losing a fortune, even now, especially after their massive unfunded liability. Im fairly certain theyll endorse me just to keep it all going!
Times correspondent and MSNBC analyst Peter Baker responded to Trumps tweet with a fact check on Twitter. Revenues up, subscriptions at a record high, profits at $37.9 million in the second quarter, Baker said.

Dream on, Don.
uh, sarcasm meter on the blink again?
Did Trump mean this as sarcasm? What was the point of the comment? Trolling seems unlikely as a comment like this will get more ridicule than not.
they would commit treason, support ebola,
encourage invading forces, and
work with seditionists, first.
Trump reminds me of a big ol’ barn cat.
One that likes to play with his prey.
If the NYT is smart, they’ll stay in their mouse hole.
I think Trump might be dangling a libel suit in front of them so big that they’d be forced to go out of business if they settled.
And he might be threatening to go after them AFTER he leaves office, too... whether it’s in 2020 or 2024...
Perhaps this is why they’d endorse? As an effort to avoid a very certain death...?
Only if he buys the paper and fires the current staff.

Libs totally lack any sense of humor.
I’d only by a New York Slimes to line my litter box for my cat.
The Prez certainly knows how to troll the media. Got to love him.
It’s called trolling...
DJT, what the hell you been smokin’?
In social media parlance, Trump's tweets tend to "age very well." That is to say, what sounds ridiculous today will likely make more sense in a few more years. For example, remember just after he took office, he tweeted about his campaign being spied on in Trump Tower. Everybody thought he was being paranoid but now he is vindicated as "Spygate" comes into clearer focus.
Yeah. They dont get sarcasm, satire, irony. Sad really.
When trump said hed ask Russia about Hillarys missing emails the dopes in the mainstream media saw it as a confession of collusion.
Dopes dont get satire.

Ummm, did you happen to miss this litte part, Mary?
“His tweet appeared to be tongue in cheek.”
The tweet is full of nonsense and lies, including the notion of the NYT losing money.
