This Friday afternoon FishbowlNY saw this Tweet from Salon reporter Justin Elliott: “Latest sign Trump isn’t running: he’s writing personal notes to me.”
Trump’s assistant sent me an email earlier today with the heading, “Message from Mr. Donald Trump.” Attached was a scanned image of a print-out of my article — “How Trump could run and still hide his net worth” — with a hand-scrawled note from the Donald himself.
Here’s what the note said:
I have no problem — I would, in fact, file early — you will be very surprised.
Yeah, it’s not as funny as the last one. No insults? No exclamation marks? But at least Elliott found out this little tidbit of information:
Oh, and how did Trump see my article? Is he a Salon reader? I asked his assistant, Thuy Colayco.
“You’d be surprised,” said Colayco. “Anything that gets written about him is forwarded to him.”
Come to think of it, that’s not surprising at all.
So where’s our handwritten note, Mr. Trump? We hate being ignored.
