Donald Trump crushed the fake news media with one statement
Donald Trump is not one to sit back and absorb attacks.
And the media has dialed up their smears about his zero tolerance immigration policy.
That all ended when Trump got up for one speech and destroyed the media with one simple truth.
During a speech in front of a business group, Trump addressed the topic of the media-generated “scandal” surrounding children being separated from their parents at the border.
If illegal aliens show up to a proper point of entry and request asylum, their family unit remains intact.
Illegal alien children are only separated from their parents if they attempt to cross the border illegally.
If that happens, the adults will be prosecuted for a crime and their children will be moved to a holding facility during criminal proceedings.
Trump blasted the media claiming that their advocacy coverage on behalf of illegal aliens seeking amnesty in the United States represented a threat to the children.
By calling illegal border crossings an acceptable means to enter the country, the media was incentivizing parents in Central America to encourage their children to make a risky journey to America with smugglers and human traffickers who were willing to put the children at risk in exchange for a fee.
He reminded Americans during a speech at the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) 75th-anniversary celebration in Washington, DC, that people who legally applied for asylum at the ports of entry were not prosecuted.
“The fake news media back there doesn’t talk about that. They are fake,” Trump said, pointing at reporters in the room. “They are helping these smugglers and these traffickers like nobody would believe. They know it, they know exactly what they’re doing, and it should be stopped.”
If the media actually cared about these kids, they would provide fair coverage that showed what the President was trying to do was end the policy known as catch and release and have Congress fulfill their constitutional requirement to make law.
