In his tweet he returns to his earlier threat of changing the libel laws in order to sue media outlets that say things he doesn’t like. He promised in February 2016 to “open up” laws in order to sue media outlets that write “purposely negative” and “horrible” articles about him.
“I’m gonna open up our libel laws, so when they write purposely negative and horrible, false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money,” Trump said at a rally in Fort Worth, Texas. “We’re going to open up those libels laws, so that when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money. ”
“You see, with me, they’re not protected, because I’m not like other people, but I’m not taking money. I’m not taking their money. We’re going to open up libel laws, and we’re going to have people sue you like you’ve never got sued before,” he said.
Trump has tweeted about the NY Times for three days in a row.
One expert stated that Trump should be careful about changing libel laws, as he could then be sued for the things he tweets about so many others.
