“I am truly enjoying myself while running for president,” Trump wrote. “The people of our country are amazing - great numbers on November 8th!”
The failing @nytimes has become a newspaper of fiction. Their stories about me always quote non-existent unnamed sources. Very dishonest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 13, 2016
