Donald Trump’s narcissism and dishonesty are showing once again. On Twitter the other day, he reacted to news that the NY Attorney General is investigating his businesses by claiming that people are leaving New York “in record numbers” because the state government is “harassing” him.
Donald Trump has claimed without providing evidence that people are leaving New York “in record numbers” because they are upset at the state’s investigations into his family business.
“New York State and its Governor, Andrew Cuomo, are now proud members of the group of PRESIDENTIAL HARASSERS,” Mr Trump tweeted on Tuesday evening. “No wonder people are fleeing the State in record numbers. The Witch Hunt continues!”
Yeah, Donald. It’s all about you. The people in a state you lost by more than 20 points in 2016 just love and adore you so much that they’re fleeing the state to get away from government officials who are “harassing” you. Except, of course, it isn’t true that people are leaving “in record numbers.” The state has seen small declines in population the last two years, but that’s because the economic recovery has gone more slowly there than in other states. The man is simply delusional.
