President Trump hit the nail on the head during a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The President was commenting on the feud between Russia and the United States and the ongoing problems we are having in Syria, when he spoke truth to power about how the media would cover whatever comes next.
The President promised that Russia would be held accountable for their crimes, and that his administration would continue to search for ways to bring the evil Putin regime to heel… but at the end of the day none of it mattered. Why? Because no matter what repercussions fell upon Russia’s head, the media would cover the situation as if Donald Trump were not doing enough.
We’ll do sanctions as soon as they very much deserve it. We will have a — that is a question. There’s been nobody tougher on Russia than President Donald Trump.
Between building up the military, between creating tremendous vast amounts of oil. We raised billions and billions of dollars extra in NATO. We had a very very severe, we were talking about it a little, fight in Syria recently. A month ago. Between our troops and Russian troops and that’s very sad.
But many people died in that fight. There has been nobody tougher than me. With the media, no matter what I did, it’s never tough enough because that’s their narrative. But Russia will tell you there has been nobody tougher than Donald Trump.
And then the other night we had a strike in Syria which was absolute precision. I leave it with this, with all of that said, if we can get along with China and if we can get along with Russia and if we can get along with Japan and other nations that’s a good thing not a bad thing. Just remember that. If we got along with other nations, that’s good not bad.
(The comments in question come near the end of the video, about 38 minutes in…Yes, you can fast forward.)
If you need proof that the President is right, and that no matter what happens next the media will pretend that Trump wasn’t tough enough… just check this out.
After the President expelled 60 Russia diplomats because of Russia’s attack on UK soil, Democrats and the media actually pretended that he was “forced” into the action, and didn’t do it of his own accord.
Here’s what Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) said on CNN, and notice, the hosts didn’t push him to prove his assertions.
“I think the president was forced to move on this because of U.K. — Prime Minister May being so strong about what Russia did in Great Britain. So this is a sign of unity within the Transatlantic Partnership, which is good. It was absolutely the right thing to do. The United States is critically important to show that we stand with Europe in our defense against Russia so it was the right move.”
This same argument then played out across various liberal publications and on more than a few of the evening media roundtables on the subject.
