Unfortunately for Trump the New York Times immedaitely had access to information that refutes his statement.
Courtesy of HuffPo:
President Donald Trump was hit with a fact-check on Sunday after declaring that The New York Times was “losing a fortune” and would soon be “out of business.”
Trump tweeted that the Times ― his hometown’s paper of record and one of his favorite media targets ― had “zero credibility” and would fold “soon after I leave office.”
Minutes later, Peter Baker, the chief White House correspondent for the Times, tweeted this fact-check:
Fact check: Revenues up, subscriptions at a record high, profits at $37.9 million in the second quarter. https://t.co/ZqWCIsu4Zu

Actually, the New York Times and Washington Post have both been knocking it out of the park business wise and journalistically.
I have a subscription to both, and will continue to support them for years to come.
See, not everything that Trump touches turns to shit.
