President-elect Donald Trump turned his sights on the New York Times Sunday morning, criticizing their coverage of his rise to political prominence and the White House.
"Wow, the @nytimes is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the 'Trump phenomena,'" Trump tweeted around 9:15 a.m. EST Sunday.
Around 9:45 a.m., the president-elect fired off two more tweets: one continuing his attack on the Times and another thanking 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who Trump says called to congradulate him on his victory.
The New York Times, along with the vast majority of the mainstream media, had predicted that Democrat Hillary Clinton would defeat Trump in a landslide election. However, Trump proved them all wrong when he started to flip battleground states on Election Night, paving his path to the White House.
In response, the Times' publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., wrote a letter to their readers on Friday thanking them for their loyalty to the paper while acknowledging that their coverage of the election was rather one-sided. He also vowed the paper would "rededicate" themselves to "honest" reporting.
Trump said in a CBS "60 Minutes" interview set to air Sunday that as president, he'll be "very restrained" when using social media, especially Twitter. That, however, hasn't been made too clear yet, as Trump has also criticized via Twitter the people protesting his victory.
