On Monday, President Trump mocked The New York Times, which he said was “very fake,” while suggesting that the publication would likely punish writers who recently penned a positive article regarding his tax overhaul.
“I’m sure these writers will be fired very shortly,” said Trump, joking that “they must have made a mistake.”
