News Comment 2

This week the article I chose to write about it titled “U.N. Human Rights Chief Condemns Trump’s Attacks on Media,” written by Nick Cumming-Bruce. The article explained peoples concerns for journalists when Trump is calling out news organizations as being “fake news.”

It appears that most people, except our president himself, can see how self-involved in a sense he is. With so many greater events taking place such as the missile North Korea shot over Japan, Hurricane Harvey, and the uprising of neo-nazis, it appears that Donald Trump’s main priority is accusing the media of false reports.

Sarah Huckabee, the White House press secretary, stated in an email that “…The president is focused on growing our economy, creating jobs, securing our border and protecting Americans. Since those are also the priorities of most Americans, hopefully the media will make covering them theirs.”

My question is, why would huge news organizations such as CNN and NYTimes, which are amongst the most trusted news outlets of 2017, be giving false news. Yes, Trump may not be the most well-liked presidents, however, he has said things and shown unpleasant sides of himself that you would never expect in the man running a country. If he can confidently say, “grab ’em by the pussy” and not see just how degrading and inappropriate that is, he has no room to be offended when news organizations release certain new stories about actions he regrets.How are there so many people out there that still support our president who has proven time and time again, that he truly does not have the best interest of ALL Americans at

I would also like to know how are there so many people out there that still support our president who has proven time and time again, that he truly does not have the best interest of ALL Americans at heart.
