Donald Trump fired back at the New York Times over a hit piece the Old Grey Lady ran this weekend about his 2020 campaign fundraising operation.
The Times article claims that the campaign hatched an “intentional scheme to boost revenues by the Trump campaign and the for-profit company that processed its online donations, WinRed.”
“The tactic ensnared scores of unsuspecting Trump loyalists — retirees, military veterans, nurses and even experienced political operatives,” the report claimed. “Soon, banks and credit card companies were inundated with fraud complaints from the president’s own supporters about donations they had not intended to make, sometimes for thousands of dollars.”
On Monday, Donald Trump blasted out an email response.
“In yet another highly partisan story, the failing New York Times wrote a completely misleading, one-sided attack piece this weekend that tried to disparage our record-setting grassroots fundraising operation during the 2020 campaign,” Trump said. “Except for massive voter fraud, this was a campaign that was easily won by your favorite Republican President, me!”
“Our support in 2020 was so big – never before seen (received more votes than any sitting President in history, by far), that it has become a major threat to the Democrat Party, which explains why the New York Times immediately rushed to defend their Radical Left allies.”
“Before our two campaigns, 2016 and 2020, Republicans would always lose small dollar donations,” he went on. “Now we win, or do very well, because we are the Party of Working Americans, and we beat the Democrats at their own game.”
“We learned from liberal ActBlue – and now we’re better than they are!” Trump added. “In fact, many people were so enthusiastic that they gave over and over, and in certain cases where they would give too much, we would promptly refund their contributions. Our overall dispute rate was less than 1% of total online donations, a very low number. This is done by Dems also.”
“The New York Times knew this but buried the details in their story – they didn’t talk about, however, how the CHEATING Democrats circumvented State Legislatures (approval is required by the U.S. Constitution) in Swing States to rig the 2020 Presidential Election,” he added, “or how Democrats paid for votes in many Urban Centers, in a little thing called ‘walking around money,’ how Democrats threatened Union Members with the loss of their jobs if they didn’t vote Democrat, massive Fake Mail-in Ballots, illegal immigrants and dead people who voted (for Dems), and much more.”
“Our fundraising efforts, working together with the Republican party, were all done legally, and all with the goal of ensuring that my Administration could continue to Make America Great Againm’ Trump continued. “The Election on the other hand, was massively rigged and stolen – and now look what is happening to our Country, and in particular at our southern border.”
“If you are one of the record-setting 75 million Americans who voted for me, donated or volunteered, THANK YOU!” Trump concluded. “The best is yet to come!”
