Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump engaged in a Twitter battle Friday with NY Magazine editor Dan Amira after the journalist told him that his wife is waiting for him to die.
“Your wife is waiting for you to die,” Amira tweeted at Trump on Friday.
Trump had earlier said he enjoyed watching “dishonest [NY Mag] writers” who “suffer the magazine’s failure.”
Nonetheless, Amira’s Tweet did not go unnoticed by the Trumps and they engaged in a short spar with Amira, calling for his dismissal from his publication.
Here are the tweets:
I love watching the dishonest writers @ suffer the magazine’s failure.
Your wife is waiting for you to die RT @ I love watching the dishonest writers @ suffer the magazine’s failure.
. @ @ Only a dumb "animal" would say that! You should be fired from your failing magazine!
@ @ A terrible statement like that shows how desperate you and your magazine are. You should be ashamed.
For the record, as a blogger, I want Donald Trump to continue living and lying and pretending he might run for office for a long, long time I hope everyone that read @'s reprehensible statement will cancel their subscription to @ in protest. Let me know.
