Trump keeps bashing the New York Times. It says it's doing better than ever.


In his ongoing, self-declared "running war the media," President Trump has repeatedly criticized The New York Times, recently escalating his criticisms to "fake news." 

However, the Times continues to counter Trump's accusations that the newspaper is "failing" by saying subscriptions have soared since election day. In late November, the paper said it had seen a net increase of about 132,000 subscriptions since Election Day, CNBC reported.

Here are Trump's tweets about the Times (and The Washington Post) over the weekend.

He resumed his anti-Times tweets on Sunday morning.

The Times did send a letter to subscribers after Election Day, posing the rhetorical question, "Did Donald Trump's sheer unconventionality lead us and other news outlets to underestimate his support among American voters?" However, it did not apologize as Trump claimed, PolitiFact reports.

The Times has frequently been critical of Trump, most recently calling his immigration ban "cowardly and dangerous." Its front page on Sunday prominently featured the protests against the ban. 

Here's a full look at the Times' front page.

Meanwhile, the Times says subscriptions are at an all-time high.
