The White House criticized a story the New York Times published Tuesday about the president’s father, Fred Trump, and his tax filings when he was a real estate mogul.
“Fred Trump has been gone for nearly twenty years and it’s sad to witness this misleading attack against the Trump family by the failing New York Times,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement sent to reporters.
Sanders accused the New York Times and other media of losing their credibility for hit pieces about members of Trump’s family.
“[T]hey are consumed with attacking the president and his family 24/7 instead of reporting the news,” Sanders said, noting that the Times rarely reported anything positive about the president.
