Trump Forced to Address Fake News Amid Pandemic
In a time when everyone needs to work together and get along, the media still continues to find ways to throw President Trump under the bus with its “fake news.” As the coronavirus continues to spread across the world, New York remains the number one state where the numbers of cases are at the top of the list. Equipment was requested from the federal government, and President Trump and the administration provided all their resources to send to New York.
It doesn’t matter what the president or his team does for the American people, the media has to paint a bad picture. Now they are just getting in the way. They were trying to say how the federal government is not helping New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who are both Democrats.
The media is trying to turn everything political as everyone in America is pulling together to try to put an end to this epidemic, which plagues us. When President Trump heard what the media was saying how the federal government was not helping, he took to his best friend, Twitter.
Trump posted Wednesday morning, “I am working very hard to help New York City & State. Dealing with both Mayor & Governor and producing tremendously for them, including four new medical centers and four new hospitals. Fake News that I won’t help them because I don’t like Cuomo (I do). Just sent 4000 ventilators!”
First off, it’s not like we can have them teleported into New York, where the ventilators are needed. Governor Cuomo begged the government to send them 30,000 ventilators to help with the growing numbers. With the millions of people in the state, the cases continue to rise more than the resources they have.
Governor Cuomo confirmed there were 7,000 ventilators sent to them, and 400 were immediately sent to them by the federal government upon the request.
Here is where the media screwed up. The president went on an interview where he responded to Governor Cuomo’s request. One statement was taken out of context where the rest of his response was edited out. Then the media took it and ran with it until Fox News set the record straight.
Trump was saying, “Cuomo is supposed to be buying his own ventilators. We’re going to help, but if you think about Governor Cuomo, we’re building him four hospitals, we’re building him four medical centers. We’re working very, very hard for the people of New York.” The fake news took the first sentence and cut out the rest.
If they edited it that way, it makes it sound like Governor Cuomo was not going to get the assistance. It seemed like he was going to handle the situation himself, and it made President Trump out to be the bad guy.
This kind of media needs to stop completely. If they cannot report the truth for what it is, then they need to close their doors. Some say lawsuits could even come out of all the horrible attacks from the media when this is all over with.
All this hatred and fake news are stopping the flow of assistance needed across America and turning people against each other in a time where real news is valuable. It caused confusion between Trump and Cuomo by making the world think the federal government was not going to help. This confuses the leaders and makes things more difficult.
New York, as of now, has over 25,600 cases of people who tested positive for coronavirus, and there are more than 200 deaths. New York City holds the hot spot within the state, with 15,600 cases with 192 deaths.
It is time to give the news to help deliver what is needed. What makes it heartless is people are dying and sick. Americans are concerned, and some are afraid. The economy is falling, people are told to stay home, and Congress is toying with people’s emotions on passing the stimulus package.
People in America are growing toward taking back their country. We have the opportunity in November. However, if the Democrats and the media continue to play these games, people in America may do exactly what happened in China when the people rose up against the government.
The people in China were lied to by their media sources and government. We have complete transparency with Trump and his administration. Let’s not let the media ruin it!
