People Who Were Actually in the Room with Trump Debunk Mainstream Media's Latest 'Hoax'

Share

The media is trying yet another “gotcha” on former President Donald Trump, but it turns out it is likely based on — surprise, surprise — more fake news.

On Thursday, Donald Trump met with a group of Republicans from the House of Representatives in Washington D.C. and the mainstream media had one takeaway from the day that sent them to breathlessly proclaim that the former president viciously attacked the very town that the GOP has chosen for its national convention this year.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is set to serve as the stage for the Republican National Convention in July, and will be the place where Trump will likely be elevated as the GOP nominee for president.

But, according to the hoax-loving media, as the presumptive nominee, Donald Trump threw a dig Milwaukee and called the city “horrible” during his June 13 meetings with Republicans.

The media loved the story.

A CNBC headline blared, “Trump allies scramble to explain after he calls Republican National Convention host Milwaukee a ‘horrible’ city.”

CNN actually pulled out the “Democrats pounce” line, writing, “Democrats pounce on Trump calling Milwaukee ‘horrible.’”

The Associated Press dinged Trump with a headline reading, “Trump refers to Milwaukee as ‘horrible’ just before the city hosts the Republican convention.”

And on, and on, it went.

Do you trust the mainstream media?

CNN even celebrated by bringing Milwaukee’s Democrat Mayor, Cavalier Johnson, on the air to absurdly insist that “Trump’s comments about city could ‘cost him the election.'”

But while the media was so quick to report that Trump was blasting Milwaukee as “horrible,” people actually in the room struck back and said that the reports were a misconstruction of what Trump actually said and it is all just another typical mainstream media fabrication.

Trump’s campaign website rounded up a list of congressmen from the Dairy State who were in the room and who said that Trump was not calling Milwaukee “horrible.” He was talking about the horrible policies with which the Democrats have burdened the city.

Wisconsin Rep. Bryan Steil, for one, said, “I was in the room. President Trump did not say this. There is no better place than Wisconsin in July.”

In other comments, Steil said that Trump was not talking about Milwaukee as a whole, but was talking about “specific issues” that need to be fixed.

Fellow Wisconsinite Rep. Scott Fitzgerald, added, “President Trump’s remarks were about election integrity,” according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel correspondent Lawrence Andrea.

Glenn Grothman insisted that President Trump was “concerned about the election in Milwaukee” and “felt we need to do better in urban centers around the country.”

Also, Wisconsin Reps Tom Tiffany and Derrick Van Orden both said Trump was talking about the horrible crime and voter fraud in Milwaukee, not the city in general.

Finally, Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks added, “I was in the meeting. President Trump never disparaged Milwaukee. Just another Democrat hoax.”

If we can rely on the words of those actually in the room when Trump made his comments, it appears that the media is once again promulgating an anti-Trump hoax to knock him down, this time by using a single word out of context as their choice of weapon.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed trStephen A. Smith Lights Up Analyst Over WNBA Delusion, Caitlin Clark Jealousy - 'Who Talks About the WNBA?!'uth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.
