The so-called “mainstream” media is manufacturing a crisis on the Southern border to try and hurt President Trump.
Liberal journalists are claiming Trump is conducting an unprecedented and inhumane campaign to crackdown on illegal immigration.
But in one sentence, Trump sent these left-wing members of the media running for the hills.
During a speech to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, Trump defended his zero tolerance policy.
But he also went after the media.
The President flat out stated that the media is encouraging human traffickers and smugglers to abuse children by bringing them on the dangerous trek across Central America to the United States.
“The fake news media back there doesn’t talk about that. They are fake,”
“They are helping these smugglers and these traffickers like nobody would believe. They know it, they know exactly what they’re doing, and it should be stopped.”
Members of the so-called “mainstream” media were outraged.
Donald Trump just said, flatly, that the media is knowingly aiding and abetting smugglers and traffickers.
How is that ok?

But Trump was 100% dead on.
The media has jumped into activist mode with their coverage.
Journalists have demanded Trump go back to the catch-and-release policies of the Obama administration where illegal alien traffickers, smugglers, and gang members know that if they pose as family members of children, they could gain entry into the United States.
By pressing the case for open borders, the media is only inviting more parents in Central America to ship their kids off to sinister human traffickers, smugglers, and dangerous gang members.
But journalists do not care.
They are political suicide bombers looking to create catastrophe to force Trump from office or to retreat on his campaign promises.
When their latest stunt fails, the members of the press move on to their next target.
The media tried to damage Trump with protests over the travel ban, health care town halls, the Russia collusion hoax, and Stormy Daniels.
And each story failed to deliver the knockout blow to Trump’s Presidency.
So they ginned up an alleged “crisis” whereby fewer than 2,000 children have been moved to holding facilities while their parents are prosecuted for attempting to enter the country illegally.
The Trump administration is merely enforcing the law.
It is a crime to enter the United States illegally.
And the Trump administration cannot detain children for more than 20 days.
While the adult’s criminal charges move through the system, children are placed in centers where they have access to three meals a day, education, and video games.
Trump knows the media’s game.
The press consists of ideological foot soldiers waging partisan warfare on behalf of the Democrat Party.
And he was completely correct to call them out on the dangerous consequences of their ideological devotion to open borders.
Trump also pointed out why the media manufactured the border crisis – to distract from the Inspector General report which showed James Comey deserved to be fired and that the Russia investigation was illegitimate because it was infested with anti-Trump bias.
So to avoid having to cover a scandal that proves the media’s Russia obsession was nothing but a hoax, the press concocted a new fake crisis to turn the American people’s attention away from good news for Donald Trump.
The President declared:
“They want to keep the cameras away from the hearings.”
“Because those hearings are not good for them. In fact, they’re a disaster for them. The whole thing is a scam.”
The media is not used to a Republican standing up, fighting back, and calling them out for their dirty tricks.
But Trump has maintained the loyalty of his base precisely because he has stood firm while the media has dug in on a fake news smear campaign.
