- The Washington Times - Thursday, November 30, 2017

President Trump blasted The New York Times Thursday morning for serving as “a virtual lobbyist” for Democrats opposed to his tax-cut plan.

“The Failing @nytimes, the pipe organ for the Democrat Party, has become a virtual lobbyist for them with regard to our massive Tax Cut Bill,” the president tweeted. “They are wrong so often that now I know we have a winner!”

The Times published an editorial Thursday with the headline, “The Senate is rushing to pass its tax bill because it stinks.” The editorial asserts that the measure is “not about true reform but about speed and bowling over the opposition in hopes of claiming a partisan victory.”

The Senate is expected to vote on the bill by the end of this week.

Mr. Trump also criticized the newspaper for having “totally gone against the Social Media Guidelines that they installed to preserve some credibility after many of their biased reporters went Rogue!”
