After Wall Street Journal Criticizes Him, Trump Fires Back In Classic Fashion

On Thursday, former President Donald Trump nuked the editorial board of The Wall Street Journal, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and others in an aggressive public statement.

Trump appeared angry over a Tuesday WSJ editorial that criticized the former president’s “grievances” and mocked CPAC enthusiasts who seemed to support Trump’s personal gripes over a substantive GOP agenda.

The 45th President’s response came in the classic Trump fashion those same supporters have come to love.

WSJ Editorial Board Blasts Trump

The WSJ editorial noted of Trump’s CPAC appearance, “Mr. Trump said Sunday that he won’t form a third party because it would divide the center-right coalition and elect Democrats.”

“But he also laid out his political enemies list and is clearly bent on revenge against anyone who voted to impeach or convict him or disagrees with his election claims,” it read.

WSJ continued, “These intraparty fights will sap GOP energy and resources when their priority now should be retaking congress in 2022.”

“Mr. Trump’s base of support means he will play an important role in the GOP, but as the Biden months roll on and the policy consequences of the 2020 defeat become stark, perhaps the party’s grassroots will begin to look past the Trump era to a new generation of potential standard bearers,” it continued.

“As long as Republicans focus on grievances of Trump’s past, they won’t be a governing majority,” the editorial noted.

Trump: ‘Nobody Cares’ About ‘Globalist’ Wall Street Journal Anymore

Trump returned fire in the no-holds-barred style that rocketed him to the head of the Republican Party.

In his statement, Trump replied that the WSJ “editorial page continues, knowingly, to fight for globalist policies such as bad trade deals, open borders, and endless wars that favor other countries and sell out our great American workers, and they fight for RINOS [Republicans in name only] that have so badly hurt the Republican Party.”

Trump added that “nobody cares much about The Wall Street Journal editorial anymore. They have lost great credibility.”

Trump also slammed Mitch McConnell, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, and Stacey Abrams.

Trump said the two Georgia Senate races that handed control of that body to the Democrats were partly due to Sen. McConnell. 

“Senator Mitch McConnell’s refusal to go above $600 per person on the stimulus check payments when the two Democrat opponents were touting $2,000 per person in ad after ad,” Trump said.

“This latter point was used against our Senators and the $2,000 will be approved anyway by the Democrats who bought the Georgia election—and McConnell let them do it!” Trump added, referring to Georgia Senate Democratic candidates’ campaign strategy.

“Even more stupidly, the National Republican Senatorial Committee spent millions of dollars on ineffective TV ads starring Mitch McConnell, the most unpopular politician in the country, who only won in Kentucky because President Trump endorsed him,” Trump also said.

“He would have lost badly without this endorsement,” Trump insisted.

The WSJ editors shot back late Thursday with a response called “Donald Trump’s Georgia Rewrite,” withe subhead, “The former President is unhappy with us for recognizing reality.”

The most shocking thing to happen next would be if Trump doesn’t respond.

If it wasn’t clear before, Donald Trump is not going anywhere.

  • Each month I get an invitation from WSJ to come back and renew my subscription at basement bargain rates. No thank you, WSJ! Over the years WSJ's embrace of liberal progressive ideology has hampered their ability to deliver the news without bias and prejudice.

  • They follow the $$$$ not the Truth. This is the problem we have. Truth no longer matters. The agenda is the motes operandi. People need to read,,, or,,, ReRead the Communist Manifesto and be Awoken!!! not "woke" or whatever the heck that crap is..... Most people between 13 and 50 are terribly ignorant of History and Facts.... AND Voting should be limited to: Those who have worked a minimum of 5 yrs at the same job about 20% above minimum wage; Or have served in action in the military, actually Defending the Constitution or others; Or have started a business On Their Own $$ not Grants; OR are over 25 and have paid for and paid off something over a few months wages, beside Fast food! Also. Families should have one vote per household!!! Thinks about those for a minute. it shows some vested interest in The Value of Labor; Personal responsibility and Citizenship; not asking the Feds to do what You Should be doing and much more!

  • The GOP and DNC will find out in 2022 and 2024 just what true patriots think. On one hand the WSJ is correct, but not in the way they think. You see, it's not an "enemies" list as they put it, it's a list of people who exposed that they believe you can just twist the law and Constitution as you wish to suit your purposes. 2016 showed the establishment/swamp the Americans are tired of politicians, 2020 showed the American people the swamp will cheat their asses off to elect whomever they deem worthy of an office, 2022 and 2024 will show the swamp what happens when they prove to not care one whit for their oath or constituency.

  • Is it possible the idiots supporting the illegal POS placed in our White House with CHEATING, do not realize he is totally destroying America?
