Trump Jr. Attacks Two Female Reporters

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to criticize two female reporters over an NBC story that questioned the sustainability of his father’s lead in Iowa’s caucuses. In a series of tweets, he accused NBC of publishing a false story based on a fictional phone call and single-source, anonymous tips.

In one tweet, Trump Jr. defended his father’s strong campaign operation in Iowa, highlighting his lead in the state’s polls and the extensive grassroots support.

In another tweet, he took a swipe at Ron DeSantis, claiming that his campaign was struggling in Iowa and facing internal strife with their SuperPAC.

The NBC story that sparked these tweets reported concerns among Trump allies about the strength of his Iowa campaign, as they scrambled to hire experienced staff and build a more robust political operation. One Trump supporter expressed worries to Donald Trump Jr. about the campaign’s lack of experience in Iowa and the need for more capable personnel.

Trump Jr. dismissed these concerns as “fake news” and portrayed the DeSantis campaign as faltering.

The stakes in Iowa are high, as a strong performance there could set the tone for the 2024 campaign. Trump’s dominance in the early polls could pave the way for him to secure the nomination, but the story highlights concerns about his campaign’s readiness and potential vulnerabilities.
