Both NYC tabloids - but especially the Post and Page Six - are to blame for elevating Trump into a national figure. He made good copy, which was all they cared about. (Clickbait existed even before there were clicks.)
For instance, this whopper, which Trump planted at the Post. He called editor Jerry Nachman and said the Post owed him the front page, because he’d sold a lot of papers for them.
Nachman, of course, thought this was both hilarious and ethical. Source:

Without the Post and the News competing, at any cost, for Trump’s favor, Trump would be Richard LeFrak. If you don’t know who LeFrak is, that’s kinda the point.
