Trump is on track to insult 650 people, places and things on Twitter

The New York Times /

Six months into his presidency, President Trump continues to use his Twitter account to insult people. Increasingly, those people are journalists. His attacks against the news media are at their highest frequency and intensity since he took office.

In recent weeks, more than half of his insults have been directed at the media in some way, and the rate has been increasing for weeks amid recent reports that the White House is seeking to discredit journalists reporting on the allegations of collusion between Russia and members of the Trump campaign.
