The New York Times published a screed Thursday on Donald Trump. The NY Times lashed out at the Republican president for not speaking with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
When the White House announced this week that President Trump had sent President Xi Jinping of China a letter wishing him a happy Chinese New Year, it did not disclose a major reason for the friendly gesture: Mr. Xi hasd not, at that point, gotten on the phone with Mr. Trump…
…Stung by an earlier, and unorthodox, telephone call between Mr. Trump and the president of Taiwan, Mr. Xi hasd not spoken to Mr. Trumpthe American leader since Nov. 14, the week after he was elected.

President Donald Trump’s response is one for the ages:
