“Donald J. Trump today demanded an apology from the failing New York Times which accused him (during a major speech before 10,000 people in Myrtle Beach, SC) of mocking a reporter’s physical disability when in fact, Mr. Trump does not know anything about the reporter or anything about what the reporter looks like,” the Trump campaign said in a statement on Thursday.
