Donald Trump bans Des Moines Register from Iowa campaign event

Donald Trump courted further controversy on Friday by banning the Des Moines Register from attending his Iowa campaign event Saturday, according to the Register.

The real-estate mogul and Republican 2016 candidate was unhappy with an editorial published by the newspaper that called on Trump to pull out of the race.

“We’re not issuing credentials to anyone from The Des Moines Register based on the editorial that they wrote earlier in the week,” Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told the newspaper.

    Thank you Donald Trump for the reassurance of the most successful method of dealing with bullies. A New Lesson for some, but for those with some experience in life, this way is the best way for strengthening the confidence of the one “bullied” AND for letting the bullies know their way is not the best way to live.

    Kids who act like bullies do so because of no “mothers” or fathers or no “good” fathers, fathers who hurt/beat/ignore them and they take it out on others. However, the kid that is the bullied needs to know that possibility and, however, proceed with the right and responsibility to defend himself coupled with the responsibility to show the bully some understanding and that he won’t win.

    THANK YOU DONALD TRUMP, for showing parents AND youth to react as Americans and stand and defend themselves. GOD BLESS YOU.

  • Yea, Ohomo and Hilldebeast would never do anything like that against FOX or any other Conservative News, or? Just like the Leftist were never concerned about Forged Birth Certificates or illegally becoming President thru Fraud, but now that Ted Cruz and Rubio want to run, they are concerned about BC’s! Shows how pathetic those retards of the Left truly are!

    Bravo! Good for our next President Donald Trump as it is high time some of these fake Liberal Newspapers and/or phony Democrat ones get their butts kicked real good! Please folks do not forget the role all our stupid bias news media played in conning the voters into electing Barack Hussein Obama into
    the White House as well! Who does the Des Moines Register think they are here anyhow? Go Donald Trump 2016 Give them Hell Donald Trump!

    Not giving press credentials is not banning them the it just means they get no special privileges.
    The clowns just have to act like every day citizens.
    But like everything the lame stream media puts out it is twisted and distorted.
    But I for one am enjoying this clown show, the more people get down on Donald Trump the more the ordinary citizen likes him.
    Go Donald go!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why would Trump care about this one editorial…when in fact virtually every MSM newspaper and TV outlet are saying the same thing??? Besides the old adage ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’ applies in these instances.Other than providing substantial proof to his oppositions claims that he is a control freak…I see no good purpose for doing this. I don’t believe this is a game changing moment…but virtually every catastrophic failure starts with imperceptible structural faults that eventually cascade into a disaster…he needs to minimize the pinholes of damage during his campaign if he expects to win.

    I like Trump. But if he can’t take the heat from a newspaper. How will he handle being president.

      Sooo glad a Smart Brave AMERICAN MAN has the intelligence, American Grit and independence to kick the Leftist publishers in their pie-holes. NOW THERE’S AN AMERICAN LESSON ON HOW TO DEAL WITH BULLIES. HIT BACK!!!

  • Randy Lewis

    Hillary would never do that, right? She is upstanding and honest. Yeah right! I don’t know why Trump cares about what the editorial says.

    There is much about Donald Trump that I admire, but I’m not sure this is a wise move. It’s hard to complain about coverage or lack thereof, if you refuse credentials to a newspaper.
    Nevertheless, having grown up in Iowa, I’m familiar with the Des Moines Register’s liberal bias and sometimes distortions of fact. For decades the slogan at the top of the Register’s statewide edition was “The Newspaper Iowa Depends Upon.” We conservatives thought it should read “The Newspaper That Depends Upon Iowa.”

    Trumps popularity will rise again. People love a fighter. The media is in serious
    trouble. Next I predict Trump will walk out on an interview. Media thinks this is business as usual and things have changed. Look for Trump to begin canceling interviews. Those that get him will have larger audiences.
