Trump Launches Ferocious Attack On NYT For Reporting Rally Crowd Size

President Trump on Wednesday lambasted The New York Times for its estimate of the crowd size at a campaign rally he led in Nashville Tuesday night.

Trump took to Twitter to complain about the newspaper’s report, saying that the number of attendees at the campaign rally for GOP Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn was “many times” larger than The Times’ estimate of 1,000, calling it a smear tactic by the publication.

“The Failing and Corrupt @nytimes estimated the crowd last night at “1000 people,” when in fact it was many times that number – and the arena was rockin’. This is the way they demean and disparage. They are very dishonest people who don’t “get” me, and never did!” Trump tweeted.

Trump drew criticism early on in his presidency for claiming that the crowd size at his inauguration was the largest in history and larger than his predecessor’s. Photos indicated it was a smaller crowd than greeted former President Obama at his 2008 inauguration.
