Wow! Trump fights back against the New York Times!
Yesterday, the New York Times published an article where they claim two women are making allegations against Trump. One of the alleged events happened 11 years ago. The second alleged event more than 30 years ago.
This is how Trump responded:

Here are excerpts from the letter:
“We write in response to the libelous article published October 12, 2016 by the New York Times entitled Two Women Say Donald Trump Touched Them Inappropriately.
Your article is reckless, defamatory, and constitutes libel per se . . . you apparently performed an entirely inadequate investigation to test the veracity of these false and malicious allegations, including why these two individuals waited, in one case, 11 years, and in another case, more than three decades, before deciding to come forward with these false and defamatory statements.
We hereby demand that you immediately cease any further publication of this article, remove it from your website and issue a full and immediate retraction and apology. Failure to do so will leave my client with no option but to pursue all available actions and remedies.”
Boom! Trump is fighting back!
If he wins, will Trump end up owning the New York Times?
