President Donald Trump’s first official state visit to Asia is going fairly well, however, that doesn’t mean the media is at all interested in portraying Trump’s visit to Japan as a roaring success. In fact, they’ve been bending over backwards to tell a totally different story.
Liberal news outlets – including CNN – purposefully edited parts of a speech President Trump delivered Monday at a conference in Tokyo. Their intent was to have it appear that Trump made a joke ‘revealing that he is ignorant of Japanese and American care manufacturing relationships’.
What Was Reported?
CNN focused on a small joke:
Trump said, “Try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over,” Trump said. “Is that possible to ask? That’s not rude. Is that rude? I don’t think so.”
CNN then spun the joke and headlined their story: “Trump asks Japan to build cars in the U.S. It already does.” They then went on to state, “Japanese automakers have tried: The country’s big three car companies already have huge factories in the U.S., and their production in the country is at a record high.” as if Trump were unaware of how deeply, and internationally, integrated the auto-making industry really is.
Who Caught Them In The Act?
Surprisingly, the Washington Post was quick to address that President Trump was not only very competent but had personally already announced huge deals made with both Toyota and Mazda. The White House even sent out a signed letter from the President, “applauding” (the Post‘s own words) the Japanese automakers for creating the kind of trade partnership the Trump White House campaigned on inking.
These cheap dirty tricks have been endemic throughout the President’s Asia trip. Fortunately, America has wised up to these foul deeds and dug deeper to find the facts about what Trump is doing and saying.
If you’re sick and tired of the liberal media’s games, send Trump a supportive message in the comments and share this to get the word out!
