President Trump’s Press Conference

My notes:

1.) I know nothing about Alexander Acosta who is President Trump’s new nominee for Labor Secretary.

2.) Rasmussen’s Daily Tracking Poll has President Trump with a 55% approval rating.

3.) President Trump calls out the NYC-DC-LA fake news Lügenpresse. He says they serve special interests.

4.) President Trump says we have to talk about the dishonest Lügenpresse. It is an “entrenched power structure.” It distorts the truth in order to propagate the Narrative.

“Many of our nation’s reporters will not tell you the truth,” Trump said.

“The press honestly is out of control,” Trump said.

“The level of dishonesty is out of control,” Trump said.

5.) President Trump says “I inherited a mess” at home and abroad.

6.) President Trump recounts the accomplishments of the last month.

7.) President Trump reminds the people he is keeping his promises. He contrasts his faithfulness to voters with dishonest politicians. The Lügenpresse is unhappy with these policy changes: killing the Trans-Pacific Partnership, extreme vetting in the refugee program, the Wall, etc.

8.) President Trump points out that federal judges are preventing him from defending the country.

9.) Dems are obstructing Senate confirmation hearings of Cabinet picks.

10.) President Trump takes credit for persuading American corporations to keep so many jobs in the United States. It was his hands on leadership that made this possible.

11.) President Trump fulfilled his promise to appoint a strong conservative to the Supreme Court.

12.) President Trump is holding a rally in Melbourne, Florida.

13.) The Lügenpresse has concocted the fake news Russia narrative in order scapegoat Russia for Hillary’s loss.

14.) Private conversations are being illegally leaked to the Lügenpresse. They should be ashamed of themselves for publishing classified information.

15.) President Trump says the failing New York Times published a discredited front page story.

16.) President Trump says The Wall Street Journal published a disgraceful story today. They also published a ridiculous story on PewDiePie.

17.) The Justice Department is now investigating the criminal leaks.

18.) President Trump: “So much of the news is fake …” “I don’t mind bad stories” as long as they are true. There is “so much anger and hatred on CNN.”

19.) President Trump says CNN “has a lower approval rating than Congress.”

20.) Wikileaks didn’t publish classified material from the DNC or John Podesta’s emails.

21.) President Trump says the tone of the Lügenpresse is “such hatred.” The panels on CNN are almost exclusively “anti-Trump” and full of “hatred and venom.”

22.) President Trump predicts the Lügenpresse will distort the news conference. That’s what they do.

23.) President Trump downgrades CNN from “fake news” to “very fake news.”

24.) President Trump says “the public doesn’t believe you anymore.”

25.) President Trump says Reince spends all of his time responding to fake news narratives. He would rather be doing other things.

26.) President Trump: “It would be great if we could get along with Russia.” “The false horrible fake reporting makes it much harder to make a deal with Russia.” “That’s a shame.” “It is a good thing to have a positive relationship with Russia, not a bad thing.”

27.) President Trump: “I’m the least anti-Semitic person … least racist person.” He calls it a “very insulting question.”
