Trump accuses Washington Post of ‘Presidential Harassment’

President Trump has accused the Washington Post of "presidential harassment’ after blasting the outlet for issuing a report he calls “Fake News.” 

The president made the remarks on Twitter Sunday.

“The Washington Post Story, about my speech in North Carolina and tweet, with its phony sources who do not exist, is Fake News,” Trump wrote. “The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats. You’ll see in 2020!”

“Presidential Harassment!” he stated in another tweet.

Trump New York Times Twitter rant
The failing @nytimes has become a newspaper of fiction. Their stories about me always quote non-existent unnamed sources. Very dishonest!
The failing @nytimes talks about anonymous sources and meetings that never happened. Their reporting is fiction. The media protects Hillary!
The failing @nytimes, which never spoke to me, keeps saying that I am saying to advisers that I will change. False, I am who I am-never said
If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn't put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%
My rallies are not covered properly by the media. They never discuss the real message and never show crowd size or enthusiasm.

While Trump did not indicate which report he was referring to, a recent Post piece described the turmoil inside the White House after the president sent out what many have called racist tweets. 

Last week, he told four congresswomen of color to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

According to the Post, which says it interviewed 26 inside sources for the report, “Trump acted alone — impulsively following his gut…Over the coming days, dozens of friends, advisers and political allies would work behind the scenes to try to fix the mess without any public admission of error because that was not the Trump way.”
