What is it with Democrats and their obsession with fake news? If there’s none for them to spread, then they will create it! At least that’s what CNN does, right?
Sunday, social media started booming with internet “professionals” as they reported that the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump was set up to receive $100 million from Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates.
There’s just one problem with these accusations…..they aren’t true!
CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto tweeted:
This is virtually identical to what Trump and others in GOP criticized Clinton Foundation for. https://t.co/AcwddFeuYW

However, he wasn’t the only one reporting the fake story!
Ivanka Fund got $100MM pledge from Saudis & UAE.
But oops! Trump is like Hallmark cards. There’s an old tweet to celebrate every occasion. pic.twitter.com/ONZzpG5hRM

NEW: Ivanka accepted $100 million from Saudis to “help women.” Nearly 10x what Clinton Fdn accepted and they had *actual* programs to fund.

Quite the haul: $100 million for Ivanka’s pet project, and $100 billion for Lockheed Martin (and new military toys for the Saudi Kingdom). https://t.co/MOVsLtfUMj

I wonder just how embarrassed they are for spreading fake rumors, or if they even feel bad at all. Maybe people will start opening their eyes at who is really reporting fake news. Hint: it isn’t Fox.
The money is actually going toward a fund called Women Entrepreneurs Fund, which is run by the World Bank, not Ivanka. The only thing Ivanka has to with the fund is that she proposed it. The Wall Street Journalreports (emphasis added):
Ms. Trump has made the promotion of women entrepreneurs a signature part of her focus since her father’s inauguration in January. She has advocated for issues such as paid family leave, though the issue has gained little traction in Congress. While she had proposed the idea of the World Bank fund, Ms. Trump doesn’t control it or raise money for it, one person familiar with the plans said.
Again, this is not Ivanka’s charity, nor will she monetarily benefit from the donation at all, unlike the Clintons with their scandal-ridden Clinton Foundation.

I guess the only requirement to work at CNN is to be able to lie. You don’t even have to be able to lie good. You just need to be morally corrupt and willing to do it.
