Former President Donald Trump reportedly slammed a New York Magazine writer late Monday night after she wrote an article on his presidential campaign.
Olivia Nuzzi published an essay titled “Donald Trump’s Sad, Lonely Run for Reelection,” in which she claims to have spoken with unidentified campaign aides and officials, including the former president.
According to one unidentified advisor Nuzzi purportedly talked with, Trump had nothing else to do.
Another unnamed claimed advisor stated that “the magic is gone.”
Trump responded to the news by claiming that none of her sources exist.
“I agreed to do a short telephone interview for a once very good but now on its ‘last legs’ and failing, New York Magazine. The reporter was a shaky & unattractive wack job, known as ‘tough’ but dumb as a rock, who actually wrote a decent story about me a long time ago. Her name, Olivia Nuzzi. Anyway, the story was Fake News, her ‘anonymous sources’ don’t exist (true with many writers) and I’m happily fighting hard for our GREAT USA!” Trump said in a post on his truth social network.
Trump announced his intention to run once again for the Presidency in the days after the 2022 midterm elections, elections which were considered by many political observers to be a major disappointment for Republicans.
