Republican nominee Donald Trump told attendees at a rally in Pennsylvania Monday night the New York Times is so bent against him that they would write a hit piece on him even if he found a cure for the world's worst disease.

"The biggest problem we have is we have a very dishonest media," Trump said late Monday at an event in Mechanicsburg, Pa. "I could do the greatest thing in the history of the world. I could come up with a cure for the most horrible disease in the world and they'd give me a front page horrible, horrible story."

The New York businessman has attacked the media for favoring Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton since he first launched his campaign last summer. He's repeatedly attacked the New York Times and Washington Post for their thorough coverage of his campaign, as well as digging in to his past.

Despite the mainstream's alleged favoring the former secretary of state, Trump promised supporters his campaign was going to "punch through the media" and win the election.

"It'll be out of business soon I hope," Trump said about the Times.
