New Hampshire newspaper publisher punches back at Trump

McQuaid added that Trump had panned him surrounding a candidate forum the paper held in August before trying to win his endorsement.

“He wrote me a letter two days before the debate saying he was a great judge of business and his instinct was that I was not going to endorse him so he wasn’t going to do my lousy event,” McQuaid said on Monday’s “MTP Daily” on MSNBC.

“Two days after the event, he sent me another letter, which I have in my coat pocket, in which he says, ‘The debate was terrible, Bush was terrible, everybody said I was a genius not to do it, and oh, by the way, when you get around to it, would you please endorse me for president?'”
