“Hey Donald Trump, if you want to point out a single false fact in any of the articles I’ve published about you – or in the book I wrote about you – feel free. In the meantime, I’m going to keep reporting – and carefully fact-checking every word I publish.“
Trump said in his tweet that Forbes “cooperated” with Letitia James, the Democratic attorney general of New York state, in her lawsuit against the firm, Trump, and his adult sons.
In addition, some analysts have suggested that Trump’s use of the epithet “racist and incompetent” may be a racial dog whistle. However, James has already prevailed in a pre-trial partial verdict in the case, when the judge found that Trump had committed fraud by inflating the worth of his assets.
Making allusion to his campaign motto, “Make America Great Again,” Trump also made the false claim that Forbes was “owned by the communist Chinese Government, and China will do anything to stop Maga.”
