NY Times liked Trump before they Hated him

Dana Mathewson

Steven Hayward posts this VERY INTERESTING article in Power Line. Back in 1984, the NYT had no reason to be totally negative on Donald Trump, so it wasn't. Hayward begins:
I recall seeing Larry Kudlow, whom I know a bit, on the Sunday morning network news shows a few weeks back and thinking that he looked terrible, like he'd aged 10 years in just the month he'd been working for Trump. A few hours later he was hospitalized for a heart attack. It was a minor heart attack (if there is such a thing), and he was out of the hospital and back in form in just a few days. But I asked a mutual friend how Larry was faring, and this person, who also talks often to Trump on the phone at all hours of the day and night, said "Look, you have to understand that Trump is a force of nature. Even though he's 71, he's  hard to keep up with.

This is preface for noting how the New York Times thought of Trump in this largely positive feature about him from 1984. It's a long read, but there are some interesting and familiar-sounding parts of this story:
