Since the election of Donald Trump, the mainstream media has lost all their credibility.
Nobody believes their lies anymore.
And the mainstream media just got smacked with one simple fact proving that.
Trump’s press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin sent the media into a frenzy.
Before the conference even began they were ready to smear Trump as a Russian puppet for even daring to speak to Putin.
And predictably, they did just that, and tried to convince the American people that his performance was everything from embarrassing to treasonous.
But not everybody bought into that lie.
The left obviously did, as did the ‘Never Trump’ establishment in the Republican Party, which the media used to claim the criticisms were non-partisan.
But in reality, the ‘Never Trump’ wing of the Republican Party doesn’t have much power in the party.
Recent polling shows that upwards of eighty percent of Republicans approve of the president.
And that eighty percent also approve of his press conference.
A new Axios poll shows that 79 percent of Republicans are supportive of Trump’s handling of the press conference, while only 18 percent did not approve.
This shows that not only is the silent majority that supported Trump prior to the election still around, but that it is more powerful than ever before, and they still stand with Trump in the face of media attacks.
But despite the clear support from everyday Republicans, many Republicans in Congress do not approve.
Thankfully for Trump supporters, those Republicans opposing Trump on this are virtually all ‘Never Trumpers’, who never supporter Trump to begin with.
Perhaps the most vocal critic is Sen. John McCain, who has lost all credibility since the election of Donald Trump.
McCain called the press conference “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in recent memory.”
But while McCain was critical, Sen. Rand Paul, who has not always gotten along with President Trump was extremely supportive.
Paul gave his support for the conference, stating that “we should be engaged with Russia” because of serious conflicts we have with them.
Sen. Paul even offered to do “shuttle diplomacy” for the president, and plans to visit Russia in August to do just that.
He truly understands the importance of Trump’s foreign policy strategy.
Trump proved to the world that he understands how to deal with other countries with his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Nobody ever expected that the United States would be on friendly terms with North Korea, especially under somebody like Trump who often rubs people the wrong way, but he has made great progress.
Because of Trump’s work in North Korea we have had multiple U.S. prisoners released; a pledge to return the remains of Americans killed in the Korean War, and promises to make steps towards denuclearization.
When former President Obama left office he said that North Korea would be Trump’s biggest difficulty, and he’s handling it very well.
Why doesn’t the media let Trump try to do the same in Russia?
