Today’s Donald Trump continues to contradict everything he previously supposedly stood for.

“It is not ‘freedom of the press’ when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false,” Trump said in one of seven tweets today attacking the Times.


Trump, however, took a much different view of the media’s role in covering presidential candidates back in 1987, when he told ABC News’ Nightline that he believed the press should do “very strong investigative reporting” on those running for the nation’s highest office.

“I think that you really want that man covered from morning ‘til noon, ‘til night, and I personally like to see very strong investigative reporting of anybody that’s going to be the president, especially the president of the country,” Trump said.
