‘All-out war’: Gingrich charges NY Times, Washington Post securing establishment against Trump

by WorldTribune Staff, July 3, 2016

The New York Times and Washington Post are engaged in an “all-out war” against the candidacy of Donald Trump, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said.

In a July 3 radio interview with John Catsimatidis, Gingrich said “both The New York Times and The Washington Post have been in an all-out war to try to redefine Donald Trump.”

Gingrich, reportedly on Trump’s short list for vice president, pointed to an article in the Times that portrayed Trump as often being inappropriate with women, relying on statements from dozens of women who have interacted with the GOP candidate over the years.

Gingrich said that “every single woman in the article [repudiated] the article, and say that The New York Times lied. They didn’t say those things.”

Rowanne Brewer Lane, who dated Trump, said the Times had taken a quote from her out of context.

Gingrich told Catsimatidis that it’s clear Trump is a better choice than Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

“If you think that it’s OK to have a corrupt, dishonest government in Washington, Hillary Clinton is the perfect candidate, because she’s part of the establishment, she gets it, she understands how to lie about virtually everything,” Gingrich said.

“If you really believe we got to change America back to prosperity and jobs and creativity and dynamics, then Trump is the only candidate in this race that makes any sense at all.”
