Fox News to Trump: “We don’t work for you.”

“Fake is when it’s wrong, Mr. President. Not when it’s unpleasant.”

Neil Cavuto, Fox News

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto strongly criticized Trump on Thursday after Trump tweeted that “Fox isn’t working for us anymore” in a series of tweets.

Cavuto responded, “First of all, Mr. President, we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you, just report on you. Call balls and strikes on you. My job, Mr. President, our job here, is to keep the scores, not settle scores.”

“It is called being fair and balanced, Mr. President, yet it is fair to say you’re not a fan when that balance includes stuff you don’t like to hear or facts you don’t like to have questioned,” Cavuto continued.

Cavuto then listed things which have been fact-checked and proven wrong, including: a top Trump trade adviser calling tariffs a “wonderful thing,” Trump saying Mexico would pay for a wall on the southern border, Trump flip-flopping on gun background checks, and Trump publicly calling into question the conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

“These aren’t fake items, they’re real items and you really said them,” Cavuto stated.

“Just like you never paid to silence a porn star until it turns out you did,” Cavuto said as a photo of Stormy Daniels was displayed.

“Hard as it is to fathom, Mr. President, just because you’re the leader of the free world, doesn’t entitle you to a free pass, just a free press. Goodnight,” Cavuto finished.

Biden leads in latest poll, Sep 12 debate narrowed to 10 candidates, some tension between the Warren and Sanders camps

The latest poll published Wednesday, conducted by Quinnipiac University, showed Biden as the top choice of 32 percent of Democratic voters and independent voters who lean Democratic. Warren came in at 19 percent and Sanders was at 15 percent.

There has been some back and forth this past week, with another poll showing the three much closer.

Also, the deadline for qualifying for the third debate has passed. The debate will include just 10 of the 21 candidates still remaining in the race. They qualified based on recognized polls and unique donations. The next debate will be one night only, on September 12, 2019, and all the major candidates will face each other directly for the first time. The 10 will be (left to right on stage): Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Andrew Yang, Beto O’Rourke, and Julian Castro.

There seems to be some rattling going on between the so-called “Bernie Bros” and Warren supporters, where some Sanders supporters are accusing Warren of not really having a concrete position on health care reform, and basically copying Sanders in order to grab the progressives. Warren herself, who has a “plan for everything” still isn’t quite specific about what her health care plan is. She started with an incremental progress position, much like Biden’s public option, and then leaped into “Medicare for All” at the first debate. Some hope Warren and Biden, the top two candidates, can reach a working policy and cooperate together. That would be something.

Warren gains and Trump annoyed by the size of her rallies, Gillibrand drops out

Flash: Kirsten Gillibrand has withdrawn from the presidential race after not qualifying for the next debate. She says she will endorse another primary candidate, but has not said who yet.

Trump tweeted on Tuesday, complaining about the media coverage of crowd sizes at Elizabeth Warren’s campaign events.

“They do stories so big on … Warren’s crowd sizes, adding many more people than are actually there, and yet my crowds, which are far bigger, get no coverage at all. Fake News!” Trump tweeted.

This is nothing new with Trump of course. He has been fixated on rally sizes since inauguration day when he inflated the number of attendees and had a government photographer edit images of his inauguration to make the crowd size appear larger than it actually was. This led to adviser Kellyanne Conway famously defended the lies as “alternative facts.”

And Trump has lately been using all sorts of inappropriate venues to brag about his rally sizes. Just recently, when visiting a hospital treating victims of the El Paso mass shooting, Trump used the opportunity to talk about how much larger his crowd had been during a rally in in the Texas city months earlier compared to the crowd at a competing rally held at the same time by Democratic presidential candidate and El Paso native Beto O’Rourke (which was a lie).

In the meantime, Elizabeth Warren does seem to be gaining momentum. Monmouth University polls released Monday show both Warren and Bernie Sanders in a virtual tie with front-runner Joe Biden.

Trump sows confusion at the G7 on the environment, trade with China, and hosting the 2020 G7 at Trump’s resort in Florida

 “I’m an environmentalist,” Trump insisted, at a press conference on Monday, claiming that he knows more about the subject than most people. But earlier the same day he skipped the session on climate change, biodiversity, and oceans. The White House claimed that he had “scheduled meetings” with the leaders of Germany and India, even though both were in attendance at the climate session. 

Trump’s tweets on trade with China have been causing confusion and instability in the markets. It seems that when Trump sees negative reaction to a trade tweet he follows up with another, even if completely false. In the latest example, the markets dropped when Trump announced new tariffs against China. Then he said he was having second thoughts. Then he had second thoughts about having second thoughts. To cap off the confusion, on Monday, Trump announced a surprise breakthrough. “You can say we’re having very meaningful talks, much more meaningful than I would say at any time, frankly,” he bragged. The Dow rose almost three hundred points. Then, somewhat baffled, China’s Foreign Ministry denied any such recent calls—or any such progress. And the market went down again.

To cap things off, Trump announced that his struggling Trump National Doral Miami resort in Florida is in the running to host the 2020 G7 conference. Hosting the G7 will cost American taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. Hosting the event at Doral, an 800-acre golf resort close to the Miami airport, which is losing money, would divert a a huge amount of taxpayer cash into Trump’s own coffers.

About United News Reports

With the 2020 Election season upon us, this site has become even more important.

Previously “Trump Fact Book” this site was just about documenting Trump’s endless lies. That story has been told over and over again.

Now there is real movement away from Trump in key midwest battleground states which he barely won last time, such as Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Those midwestern states had gone Democratic the previous 30 years, and could easily swing back again. Trump is losing among his previous supporters in those states. If even just those three states swing back, Trump will surely lose in 2020.

Thus United News Reports… We have to stick together. We have to be united. We have to end divisions and get people working together for a common cause. And we need to keep those vital midwest states in mind as we move forward and try to return decency and sanity to American politics. For everybody’s sake.

The Democratic candidate has not yet been chosen. There are some great contenders. We must unite behind the future nominee. This site will continue to shed light on the dangerous, ignorant, deranged, immature, and immoral nature of Trump as we go forward.

But more importantly, we will help unite people to defeat Trump in 2020.

And we’ll use truth, facts, and common humanity to do it!

Feel free to forward this on so we can get more subscribers. We’re just a small part of the upcoming campaign – but maybe we can make some difference. Thanks!

Fox News say Trump’s ‘Flailing Around’ Is Jeopardizing Economy

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace took a shot at the Trump’s escalating trade war with China, accusing Trump of “flailing around.”

“The best I can tell, the American president can’t order U.S. companies how they’re going to do their sales and where they’re going to have their supply chains,” Wallace said during an appearance on “America’s Newsroom.” “We have a free-market, capitalist system.”

Earlier that afternoon, in a flurry of outraged tweets, Trump accused China of stealing money from the U.S. and ordered American companies to “immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.”

Note: The president doesn’t have the authority to order companies to do anything like that.

“My guess is that most people in this country wouldn’t want to see the president be able to do this,” Wallace said.

He also raised concerns also over Trump’s targeting of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, whom the president declared an “enemy” of the nation.

“When you have the president of the United States sort of flailing around this way and ordering companies to move back to the U.S. and saying that the head of the Federal Reserve is an enemy of the country, is that going to create more consumer confidence about the state of the economy or not?” Wallace said.

For second day in a row Trump addresses Jews and loyalty

Well, this makes it pretty clear what Trump meant:

On Wednesday, Trump thanked a conspiracy theorist, Wayne Allyn Root, for saying Jews in Israel love the president “like he’s the King of Israel” and doubled down on his efforts to pit American Jews against one another, accusing Jewish voters of disloyalty if they voted for Democrats.

It was the second day in a row that Trump addressed Jews and loyalty, a theme evoking an anti-Semitic trope that Jews have a “dual loyalty” and are often more loyal to Israel than to their own countries.

“If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel,” Trump said Wednesday at the White House.

“It is the height of hypocrisy to use Christian theology to bully Jews and to push out some messianic complex — literally, it’s hard to think of something less kosher than telling the Jewish people you’re the king of Israel, and therefore, we should have some fidelity to you for that reason,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, said Wednesday on CNN. “I don’t know if he’s read the Bible, but in the Old Testament, that’s not what we believe.”

Trump Accuses Jewish Americans Who Vote Democrat Of ‘Disloyalty’

Trump said Tuesday that Jewish people in the U.S. who vote for members of the Democratic Party are not loyal.

Trump did not specifically say to whom Jewish Americans who vote Democrat are disloyal.

“If this is about Israel, then Trump is repeating a dual loyalty claim, which is a form of anti-Semitism,” said Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, in a statement to HuffPost. “If this is about Jews being ‘loyal’ to him, then Trump needs a reality check. We live in a democracy, and Jewish support for the Republican Party has been halved in the past four years.”

According to the Pew Research Center, about 79% of Jewish voters in America voted Democrat in the 2018 midterm elections.

Emily Mayer, a spokesperson with progressive Jewish organization IfNotNow, said that Trump’s remarks are “an explicit dual loyalty charge” that is “a bullhorn to his white nationalist base.”

Aaron Keyak, former head of the National Jewish Democratic Council, said Tuesday that Trump’s comments are “dangerous, reckless, and wrong.”

“Jews have had a long history of being in countries where we are accused of being disloyal,” he said in a statement. “Just because President Trump is deeply unpopular in our community is no reason to slander us with echos of some of the most insidious attacks against our people. We’ve seen where this road has led before.”
