Des Moines Register Donald Trump

Bans Des Moines Register from Iowa event

24 Jul, 2015

After the paper issued an editorial that called on Trump to pull out of the race, Trump bans the paper from his campaign event in Iowa, although they may reconsider for later events. Campaign manager:

We’re not issuing credentials to anyone from The Des Moines Register based on the editorial that they wrote earlier in the week.

The Register’s editor:

As we previously said, the editorial has no bearing on our news coverage. We work hard to provide Iowans with coverage of all the candidates when they spend time in Iowa, and this is obviously impeding our ability to do so. We hope Mr. Trump’s campaign will revisit its decision instead of making punitive decisions because we wrote something critical of him.
