The New York Times fired back at the president’s claim that their number of subscribers are “dwindling.” Saying that “subscribers & audience at all-time highs” and declaring “supporting independent journalism matters.”

This is not the first time that Trump has blasted the New York Times. According to the Trump Twitter Archive, the president has tweeted about The New York Times and their reporters on thirty-five occasions. He’s called them “failing,” a “dying newspaper” and several other names.
