The New York Times is furious at President Trump for commenting on racially charged quotes from Michael Bloomberg.

On Wednesday, the Times published a story written by Michael Shear and Maggie Haberman with the headline, "Trump Takes On Bloomberg and Once Again Hijacks a News Cycle," which bashed the president for bringing actual quotes from the Democratic presidential candidate to light.

Shear and Haberman claim, "Like an assignment editor at a tabloid newspaper, the president poured accelerant on the story, aided by his oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and his campaign manager, who helped fuel a social media firestorm, already underway, that had the hashtag "#BloombergIsARacist." the afternoon, the hashtag was trending on Twitter and cable news programs, including on CNN and MSNBC, where guests were still talking about the audio clip -- and Mr. Trump's meddling."
