Leaked: Trump’s Childish Editorial Notes To Top Journalists

It’s no secret that Donald Trump is not the biggest fan of the media. He has called them “the enemy of the people” and has attacked them on multiple occasions.

But what most people did not know is that Trump sends notes to multiple journalists “criticizing” what they wrote about him.

Thanks to Politico, those notes have been made public, with permission from reporters of course.

I know far more about you than you know about me—you never got the “Trump Thing.” As one of your writers recently said, “Graydon doesn’t like you.”
Best Wishes,
Donald Trump

[Arrow to photo of self] Bad picture (no surprise)

[Arrow pointing to words “March 2011 is not really the time for mudslinging”] Thanks for the advice

[Arrow pointing to words “It’s time to hire a better ersatz exploratory committee] Not allowed!

[Circled the suggestion that he is “pretending to be” interested in appealing to a diverse electorate] Oh really!

[Circled the name of journalist Ben Smith] And who is Ben Smith?

[Circled words saying Trump “owns parts of” several real estate projects] And plenty of wholes—
