“In yet another highly partisan story, the failing New York Times wrote a completely misleading, one-sided attack piece this weekend that tried to disparage our record-setting grassroots fundraising operation during the 2020 campaign,” Trump said via his Save America political action committee (PAC) on Monday.
“Except for massive voter fraud, this was a campaign that was easily won by your favorite Republican President, me! Our support in 2020 was so big—never before seen (received more votes than any sitting President in history, by far), that it has become a major threat to the Democrat Party, which explains why the New York Times immediately rushed to defend their Radical Left allies.”

The NY Times reported that the Trump campaign circulated millions of dollars in refunds to contributors during the final months of 2020, which supposedly surpassed that of President Joe Biden’s campaign. The paper cited “an investigation by The New York Times” that claimed some donors ignorantly agreed to weekly recurring campaign donation payments.
Trump said in his Monday statement that his 2020 campaign copied Democratic fundraising strategies, including the platform ActBlue.
“We learned from liberal ActBlue—and now we’re better than they are! In fact, many people were so enthusiastic that they gave over and over, and in certain cases where they would give too much, we would promptly refund their contributions. Our overall dispute rate was less than 1% of total online donations, a very low number,” the former President added.
Trump, whose voter fraud claims failed in court, continued: “Before our two campaigns, 2016 and 2020, Republicans would always lose small dollar donations. Now we win, or do very well, because we are the Party of Working Americans, and we beat the Democrats at their own game.”
Trump remained to say, “This is done by Dems also. The New York Times knew this but buried these details in their story.”
The 2020 campaign’s works, in tandem with the GOP, were “all done legally,” he added. “Now look at what is happening to our Country, and in particular at our southern border,” Trump said. “If you are one of the record-setting 75 million Americans who voted for me, donated or volunteered, THANK YOU! The best is yet to come!”
