SPECIAL: President Trump issued his statement on Paul Krugman of NYT, and the full text is in the below:
Remember when Paul Krugman, the highly overrated op-ed columnist for the New York Times, told everybody to get out of the stock market fast and completely after I was elected President in 2016. Anybody that took this losers advice would have approximately one-third of the money they have right now—or even less assuming bad investments. The New York Times probably told him what to say because nobody could be so dumb, and nobody has attacked their credibility like me. They are truly Fake News. They got a Pulitzer Prize for Russia, Russia, Russia, and it turned out to be a total scam. The Pulitzer Committee, which has no credibility left anyway, should demand all of the Russia, Russia, Russia prizes back because the facts were the exact opposite. Likewise, Krugman, should apologize to all of those people that followed his advice and lost a fortune doing so. Maybe they should all get together and sue him for what they have lost. Apologize, Paul!
