The article goes on to state the following:
“Well, when they get their opinion totally wrong, as the New York Times did, and, frankly, they’ve got a lot wrong over the last number of years, so we’ll let that work its way through the courts,” Trump said.
“If you read it, you’ll see it’s beyond an opinion. That’s not an opinion. That’s something much more than an opinion. They did a bad thing, and there will be more coming,” Trump said.

In response to the lawsuit, the New York Times said, “The Trump campaign has turned to the courts to try to punish an opinion writer for having an opinion they find unacceptable.
“Fortunately, the law protects the rights of Americans to express their judgments and conclusions, especially about events of public importance. We look forward to vindicating that right in this case.”
