Trump gives a speech to a rally in Sarasota, FL. He says The New York Times should give him an apology over the Kovaleski affair.
I took a lot of heat about a reporter. What really happened? I think it’s very important for me to say. I made a statement that – I was talking about groveling – a reporter was groveling. He took back a statement he wrote 14 years ago…I don’t knock people that have problems, believe me. I would never mock a person that has difficulties….Who else is going to take on The New York Times? I don’t care. … They’ll probably be out of business pretty soon….The problem is, [Kovaleski]’s using what he’s got to such a horrible degree, I think it’s disgraceful…I think the New York Times frankly should give me an apology. I’d love to have the apology before they go out of business.
