Donald Trump Blasts New York Times’ Jeb Bush ‘Con Job’ Story

”Bush is pretending that the ‘Trump surge’ is great for him and the @nytimesworld is reporting Bush ‘delight’ – con job, a Bush nightmare!“ GOP presidential candidate tweets

As long as the earth is still orbiting around the sun, Donald Trump will be criticizing the media.

The GOP presidential candidate took the New York Times to task on Monday for what he deemed a “con job” story about Jeb Bush seeing Trump’s surge in the polls as a positive for his candidacy.

“Bush is pretending that the “Trump surge” is great for him and the is reporting Bush “delight” – con job, a Bush nightmare!” he tweeted.

The piece that peeved Trump referenced Bush’s “barely concealed delight” that Trump’s rise has minimized other candidates vying to challenge Bush, making it easier for Bush to “position himself as the serious and thoughtful alternative to a candidate who has upended the early nominating process.”

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll have Trump at 19 percent, Scott Walker at 15 percent and Bush at 14 percent.

With the first GOP presidential debate coming up on Thursday, Trump has played down expectations, noting he’s never debated and doesn’t know how he’ll perform.
