Radio Recap – Fake News: Media Publishes Lies About President Trump & the Military
Fake news is ramping up leading into the election, as the Fake News Media publishes lies about President Trump and our U.S. military.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed the Fake News Media publishing a disgusting attack against President Trump, lying about his stance on the military and our veterans. President Trump has used his position to increase the military budget and has made helping veterans a cornerstone of his presidency. He's always shown them respect.
There are very aggressive attacks right now in the mainstream media. This one came specifically from the Atlantic, but has been repeated over various outlets today. The attack claims President Trump has repeatedly disparaged service members and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades. Of course, it’s all conveniently being credited to so-called anonymous sources. In other worse, there’s no proof, and no one to question about it. We’re just supposed to believe he said these things because the mainstream media says so.
At the ACLJ, we prefer verifiable sources and facts. And the facts is, it would be hard to point to another modern day U.S. President who has done more to rebuild the U.S. military than President Trump. We’ve talked about his visits to Walter Reed and our wounded heroes. He’s gone to military bases to see the troops. Most importantly he’s given the military the best and newest tools available to use on the battlefield and to protect themselves.
Remember it was President Obama who cut military spending. President Trump increased it. President Obama did nothing to fix the broken Veterans Affairs (VA) system, ignoring our country’s struggling veterans in need, while President Trump has signed a number of bills into law to address soldiers’ issues.
We were also joined by ACLJ Senior Adviser for National Security and Foreign Policy Ric Grenell. In addition to joining the ACLJ, Ric is serving as U.S. Special Envoy for peace negotiations between Kosovo and Serbia. Ric joined us via phone from the White House, and shared a historic moment that had just taken place:
It’s really exciting. I am here at the White House. I just walked out of the Oval Office after we had a historic economic normalization agreement between Serbia and Kosovo. This is one of those problems that has existed for decades and we’ve been stuck on political issues and political talk, and politicians focusing on symbolism. What President Trump wanted to do was to try something new in the Serbia-Kosovo discussions.
This announcement was a historic economic normalization agreement, which is something that often takes a back burner to political negotiations. In fact a key part of this agreement actually developed as we were on the air – and one that we can directly appreciate. Serbia, as part of the deal, agreed to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Maybe even a bigger story, for the first time in history, Kosovo, a predominantly Muslim country, will be recognizing Israel as a state. Ric shared more about that milestone agreement:
Both of these things are happening and we just actually had a conversation in the Oval between Prime Minister Hoti of Kosovo, President Trump, and Prime Minister Netanyahu. And that was just solidified, and there will be mutual recognition between Israel and Kosovo, as you say, a predominantly Muslim country in Europe. And we will have an embassy from Kosovo in Jerusalem. This is truly historic and President Trump has pushed for it.
That is truly exciting news, and it was truly special to hear about it directly from one of the actual negotiators himself, Ric Grenell.
The full broadcast is complete with much more discussion by our team of the real truth, not the media lies, about the Trump Administration’s record on the military and veterans. We also have a much more lengthy discussion with ACLJ Senior Adviser for National Security and Foreign Policy, Ric Grenell.
