The presumptive Republican presidential nominee called it a “lame hit piece” on Twitter, adding that he provided “many names” of women he helped that were not used in the article.

The Times said it interviewed dozens of women who encountered the billionaire real estate mogul, revealing a “complex, at times contradictory portrait.”

The newspaper’s report said Trump both nurtured women’s careers and mocked their appearance.

Trump also said the "failing" newspaper "found nothing" and called on the "dishonest" media to do a "real story" on the "Clintons and media."
