“If @politico’s commitment to get the “facts straight” was as important as their insatiable desire to rush out the door with a semi-baked story, paired with a salacious headline, then maybe they wouldn’t constantly be wrong,” wrote White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany in a tweet Tuesday.
Politico published an article Friday morning in which it claimed President Trump, through the Trump Organization, owed “tens of millions of dollar” to the Bank of China for a refinancing deal made in 2012.
Bank of China then came out with a statement stating it solds its debt shortly after the 2012 deal. Politico followed up with an editor’s note, including an issued apology, on Monday evening to correct the reported discrepancy.
