Trump doubles down on threats to sue Pulitzer board at Texas rally


Former President Trump doubled down on his threats to sue the Pulitzer Prize board on Saturday over his awards for reporting on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Within the next two weeks, we will be suing the Pulitzer Organization to get these awards back,” Trump said at a rally in Robstown, Texas, where he was rushing for Republicans in the state.

The Pulitzer Council in July rejected Trump’s demands to revoke the 2018 national reporting awards given to The Washington Post and The New York Times, saying its review found no reason to rescind the awards.

Trump, who claimed the newspaper reports were “totally incorrect,” suggested he planned to sue Pulitzer’s board for defamation.

“By allowing these people who got Russia, Russia, Russia wrong, they’re actually defaming me because they’re saying they’re right,” Trump said at Saturday’s rally.

The former president has once threatened to sue Pulitzer’s board if it doesn’t “do the right thing on its own.”
