Donald Trump said Saturday that his true opponent in the general election is the media.
“I’m not running against crooked Hillary, I’m running against the crooked media,” Trump said at a rally in Fairfield, Conn. “That’s what I’m running against, I’m not running against crooked Hillary.”
Trump has repeatedly lashed out at media that he calls “dishonest” over the course of his campaign.
Earlier Saturday, he bashed the New York Times after a report came out in which sources characterized Trump as “sullen” and struggling to recover in light of lagging poll numbers.
He renewed those attacks on the Times at the rally Saturday, saying he’s considering revoking their credentials to cover his rallies.
“I’ll tell you in particular lately we have a newspaper that’s failing badly, its losing a lot of money, its gonna be out of business very soon: the New York Times,” he said.
Trump blasted the use of anonymous sources in the Times report, saying “I don’t think they have any names.”
“They never call me,” he added. “It’s going to hell.”
