Trump: NY Times is 'total mess'

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter to direct criticism towards the New York Times, referring to the media outlet as a "total mess."

Trump went on to slam the executive director of the newspaper, Dean Baquet, saying tauntingly he is to be "seriously respected," as he was "considered one of the dumbest men in the world of journalism" for a long time and is "willing to write anything, even if not truthful."

"@deanbaquet is to be seriously respected. He has long been considered one of the dumbest men in the world of journalism, and he became Executive Editor of the Failing New York Times. Not easy to do. He has given up on “figuring Trump out”. Called it all wrong from the beginning, was forced to apologize (Fake News!) after the seriously wrong call of the 2016 Election, and is now willing to write anything, even if not truthful. He laughs at his boss, Publisher A.G. Sulzberger, and I laugh at them all. The @nytimes is a total mess," the US president wrote.
