Trump Destroys CNN, NY Times; Sends Mexico A Stern Warning
President Donald Trump put CNN and The New York Times on blast Sunday, calling them both the “enemy of the people” as a response to what he called “false reporting” concerning the deal his administration recently made with Mexico.
Trump posted a series of tweets online that warned Mexico to cooperate with the U.S., and if they do not honor the agreement the two countries reached last week, he would go ahead and impose the tariffs on the country.
Daily Wire reports:
“The president and other key administration officials also sharply disputed a New York Times report claiming the Friday deal ‘largely’ had been negotiated months ago, and hinted that not all major details of the new arrangement have yet been made public,” Fox News’ Gregg Re reported. “Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, speaking on ‘Fox News Sunday,’ insisted ‘all of it is new,’ including the agreement to dispatch around 6,000 National Guard troops — a move Mexico has described as an ‘acceleration.'”
“Another false report in the Failing @nytimes. We have been trying to get some of these Border Actions for a long time, as have other administrations, but were not able to get them, or get them in full, until our signed agreement with Mexico,” Trump tweeted. “Additionally, and for many years, Mexico was not being cooperative on the Border in things we had, or didn’t have, and now I have full confidence, especially after speaking to their President yesterday, that they will be very cooperative and want to get the job properly done.”
“Importantly, some things not mentioned in yesterday’s press release, one in particular, were agreed upon. That will be announced at the appropriate time,” Trump continued. “There is now going to be great cooperation between Mexico & the USA, something that didn’t exist for decades. However, if for some unknown reason there is not, we can always go back to our previous, very profitable, position of Tariffs – But I don’t believe that will be necessary. The Failing @nytimes, & ratings-challenged @CNN, will do anything possible to see our Country fail! They are truly The Enemy of the People!”
The deal that was reached between Mexico and the United States came just days before Trump was going to impose a five percent tariff on all goods coming into our country from Mexico, if they didn’t do something to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.
For every month that would pass after the tariffs went into effect, the percentage would go up five percent until it reached a maximum of 25 percent and would remain in effect until they did more to stop illegals from crossing over the border.
It’s not surprising to see the mainstream media lie through their teeth about anything President Trump attempts to do, as they’ve already made it clear they’re devoting all of their time, effort, and energy to destroying the man and anything he tries to do to improve our security.
Maybe one day, when these publications look back on this time years in the future, they’ll realize how wrong they truly were.
