Comment: You’ll note the ‘never Trumpers,’ on both sides of the aisle, continually criticize President Trump’s use of twitter as well as his making public announcements when needed. The mainstream media is awash in ‘fake news’ virtually all of which is against the President.
President Trump knows how to work the media and at the same time get his message across without the mainstream media’s and other ‘never Trumpers,’ approval. All and all President Trump has ‘out-trumped’ the never Trumpers. Donald Trump is the people’s ‘President,’ a foreign concept to the democrats who would have us under the heel of the globalist elites….WFM
New York Times Writes ‘False Story After False Story’
By David Rutz, Washington Free Beacon, June 28, 2017
President Donald Trump continued to rail against the press from his Twitter account on Wednesday, blasting the New York Times for writing “false story after false story” and also criticizing the media’s health care coverage.
Trump said the Times does not “call to verify the facts of a story” and was a “Fake News Joke.” He added that press outlets were falsely stating he was not “totally engaged” on health care reform and that he actually knows the subject “well.”
Trump may have been responding to a Times story Tuesday that depicted him as out of the loop on the GOP’s proposed health care bill.
Trump’s agenda suffered a setback Tuesday when Senate Republicans had to delay sending their Obamacare overhaul to the floor, as it became clear they did not have the votes to pass it. The Times published a story that said Trump had been “largely on the sidelines as the fate of one of his most important campaign pledges played out.”
If Republicans manage to get a deal, the Times wrote, it would not be because of Trump’s involvement, adding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) had kept Trump at “polite arm’s length” while overseeing negotiations.
In the aftermath of a retracted CNN story about a Trump associate and the Kremlin that led to three employees leaving CNN, Trump and spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders respectively lit into the press on Tuesday. Trump tweeted that multiple mainstream outlets were “fake news” and Sanders went on an extended diatribe against the press at the White House briefing.
