Some recent statements by President Trump:
So I’m attempting to understand what he is claiming.
Is the President saying that recent events like the mail bombs, the Kentucky supermarket shootings, and the Pittsburgh synagogue shootings didn’t happen? That the media just made these events up?
Or is he saying that these events occurred but they were staged by the media? Or that they were staged by somebody else and media was wrong to report them? If so, does the President think the media knew the events were staged?
Or does the President believe that these events did occur but feel that they were not newsworthy and the media only chose to report them in order to avoid reporting on other more important stories?
Or does the President feel that these events occur but the media is deliberately altering the facts of the events in their report, by adding and subtracting to the facts they report?
How does the President feel these things are co-ordinated? Is there somebody who tells the media which stories to cover and which to avoid? There are thousands of media sources in this country; how do these decisions get communicated?
I realize there are going to be many posters who will want to mock the President on this topic. But I want them to refrain. There are other threads where you can do that. I honestly want responses from people who support the President so I can understand their point of view.
