2016 ELECTION/AWARDS/RUSSIA: “In letters dated October 3, 2021, and November 15, 2021, I requested that the Pulitzer Prize Board rescind the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting that it awarded to The New York Times and The Washington Post for their purportedly ‘deeply sourced… coverage… of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connection to the Trump campaign.’ […]

Together with the publications that have obsessively promulgated disgustingly false attacks against me, you have done all you can to destroy my reputation, how do I get my reputation back?…

I again call on you to rescind the Prize you awarded based on blatantly fake, derogatory and defamatory news. If you chose to not do so, we will see you in court.”

-Donald Trump, “Letter to the Pulitzer Prizes,” donaldjtrump.com, May 31, 2021
