Trump Misrepresents New York Times Article on Women
Donald Trump blasted a report in The New York Times about how he has treated women in private.
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.
Everyone is laughing at the @nytimes for the lame hit piece they did on me and women.I gave them many names of women I helped-refused to use

One of the reporters later called that tweet “factually inaccurate,” saying women suggested by Trump’s office were interviewed.
