Trump Slams ‘Failing’ NY Times for Not Mentioning More of His Accomplishments

President Trump is going after the “failing New York Times” once again.

This time, he invoked a piece written by Peter Baker that he didn’t feel listed enough of his accomplishments:

The President is presumably referring to this article on the front page of today’s Times. The print headline is “Trump Wields Words Louder Than Actions” and the piece starts out thusly:

President Trump leaves little doubt about what he thinks of his predecessor’s top domestic and international legacies. The health care program enacted by President Barack Obama is “outrageous” and “absolutely destroying everything in its wake.” The nuclear deal with Iran is “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”

Yet as much as he has set his sights on them, Mr. Trump after nearly nine months in office has not actually gotten rid of either. Instead, in the past few days, he took partial steps to undercut both initiatives and then left it to Congress to figure out what to do next. Whether either will ultimately survive in some form has become a central suspense of Mr. Trump’s first year in office.
