Trump Responds to HuffPo: ‘Never Been A Fan’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has a response for the Huffington Post.

“Mr. Trump has never been a fan of Arianna Huffington or the money-losing Huffington Post,” according to a statement from the Trump campaign on Friday.

The Huffington Post said earlier on Friday it will no longer cover the presidential campaign of real estate mogul and former reality TV star Donald Trump in the politics section but instead in its entertainment section.

Trump’s statement noted that he was doing well in numerous GOP primary polls.

“Mr. Trump is number one in the unimportant Huffington Post poll, along with all other recently released polls including Reuters, FOX, USA Today/Suffolk University and The Economist,” the statement said.

Despite a national poll that showed Hispanic voters are not in favor of Trump, his campaign expects to win the primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire, according to the release.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
