The New York Times dedicated two full pages of the paper to printing “Donald Trump insults” in their Monday edition. The two page, entitled “All the People, Places and Things Donald Trump Has Insulted On Twitter Since Declaring His Candidacy for President”, include specific details on every person or organisation that the Republican presidential candidate has insulted in the two years of his campaign. The list includes names of 281 people, places, news organisations, and things that he has insulted on Twitter. The NYT had been running the list since January 2016 online and kept updating it, marking the most recent to the oldest insults.

Donald Trump is currently lagging behind his opponent, the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who is currently leading by six points. Trump’s campaign fell to a large extent after his 2005 tapes were released where he is passing lewd comments against women. After the incident, many women have come forward and accused the Presidential candidate of sexually assaulting them. Trump had also threatened to sue these women, saying the allegations were false.
Donald Trump had also sent a legal notice to The New York Times asking it to retract a ‘reckless’ and ‘defamatory’ story in which two women claimed the Republican presidential nominee touched them inappropriately. However, The New York Times rejected Donald Trump’s claim that the newspaper had libeled the Republican presidential nominee, saying its story about two women who said he sexually assaulted them was “newsworthy information about a subject of deep public concern.”
