New York Times compiles list of everything Donald Trump has insulted since he stood for presidency

New York: In an unusual move, an influential US newspaper has come out with a full two-page spread of all the insults Donald Trump has slung on Twitter.

The New York Times on Monday printed about 6,000 of the insults the controversial Republican presidential nominee has posted on Twitter in the run-up to the 8 November general election.

"SAD!" "CROOKED," "failing," read just a few. The feature included some of Trump's most familiar online grudges, including against the American media. The spread also recalled explosive feuds the 70-year-old real estate billionaire had with Fox News host Megyn Kelly and primary opponent Senator Ted Cruz, whom he derided as "Crazy Megyn" and "Lyin' Ted," respectively.

While major media outlets, reporters and other politicians have taken the brunt of Trump's attacks, the Times also highlighted some of the more bizarre enemies Trump has made on social media.

For example, he once called musician Neil Young a "total hypocrite" and said Macy's had "no guts no glory." While Monday marked the feature's first appearance in print, the insult tally has a place on the Times website for months and is updated regularly.

In a statement, Times Associate Masthead Editor Tom Jolly told CNNMoney that the paper wanted to give the "fullest representation" of Trump's tweets at an "appropriate moment."

US Election BAR

"The period after the (presidential) debates seemed like the right time for both parts of that equation," Jolly said. The newspaper has aggressively criticised Trump this election season.

A September editorial bashed Trump's campaign as "marked by bursts of false and outrageous allegations, personal insults, xenophobic nationalism, unapologetic sexism and positions that shift according to his audience and his whims."
