The New York Times published a front-page story today accusing Donald Trump of doing little more than slapping his name on his development projects and essentially deceiving those who thought otherwise.
Asked about the story on CNBC today, The Donald took aim at the piece’s reporter, Michael Barbaro, whom he accused of avoiding debating him over the matter on television.
“He doesn’t have the guts to go on,” Trump said. “Because he can’t defend himself. And the New York Times should be ashamed of themselves.”
[Note: Donald Trump is the father-in-law of New York Observer publisher Jared Kushner.]
