Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump slammed The Boston Globe on Sunday in response to a satirical front page the paper published that imagines a Trump presidency.
“How about that stupid Boston Globe? It’s worthless, sold for a dollar,” Trump said during a rally Sunday in Rochester, N.Y.
{mosads}”They pretended Trump is the president and they made up, the whole front page is a make-believe story, which is really no different from the whole paper. … The whole thing is made up.”
Trump said he thinks the paper has received a lot of backlash from the front page it published.
The newspaper page has a large headline that says, “Deportations to begin.” The line underneath says “President Trump calls for tripling of ICE force; riots continue.” Other headlines on the page included “Curfews extended in multiple cities,” “Markets sink as trade war looms” and “New libel law targets ‘absolute scum’ in press.”
The editorial board, in introducing the page, called Trump’s vision for the country’s future “deeply disturbing” and “un-American.” It also slams the front-runner for comments he’s made about riots, opening up libel laws and shutting down Muslim immigration to the United States.
“It is easy to find historical antecedents. The rise of demagogic strongmen is an all too common phenomenon on our small planet. And what marks each of those dark episodes is a failure to fathom where a leader’s vision leads, to carry rhetoric to its logical conclusion,” the piece said.
“The satirical front page of this section attempts to do just that, to envision what America looks like with Trump in the White House.”
“They wrote a totally dishonest story, totally dishonest,” Trump said during the rally Sunday.
