“‘Another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes,’ Mr. Trump said, then invoked one of his preferred insults. ‘Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times.’ He added: ‘So they basically have to let me win. And eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, ‘Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.’ O.K.’”
