Donald Trump Calls New York Times Reporter a "Liar" in Response to Photo of Him Addressing Mostly Empty Room
"Jonathan Martin refused to acknowledge massive crowd surge forward during my speech in South Carolina," Trump says.
Donald Trump is not happy with the New York Times reporter who shared a photo over social media of a mostly empty room the GOP presidential candidate was addressing while stumping in South Carolina on Wednesday.
National political correspondent Jonathan Martin shared the picture on Twitter, enraging the former Apprentice host.

Trump responded Thursday morning, firing back at Martin and sharing a collage of photos from the event.
In a tweet sent a little before Trump's Instagram post, the real estate mogul said journalists will not keep him down.
Despite the establishment and the media’s best efforts, the people are speaking loudly and clearly. Thank you to my amazing supporters!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2015
