In his campaign rally in Melbourne, Florida, Donald Trump announced that his war against journalists will soon come to an end. Journalists, he says, are beginning to join with his movement, rather than resisting it.
Trump explained, “The dishonest media which has published one false story after another with no sources, even though they pretend they have them, they make them up in many cases, they just don’t want to report the truth and they’ve been calling us wrong now for two years. They don’t get it, but they’re starting to get it. I can tell you that. They’ve become a big part of the problem. They are part of the corrupt system.”
There you have it. Donald Trump says that, more and more, journalists are beginning to stop asking him tough questions and are slowly decreasing the number of facts they publish that are unflattering to the Trump White House.
Increasingly, according to Trump, journalists are bending to his will, becoming part of the problem, repeating Trump propaganda, and joining the corrupt system that Trump is working hard to expand.
The words are coming out of Trump’s own mouth. Does it make us part of the “dishonest media” to repeat them?
We want to become a part of Trump’s corrupt system. Honest, we do. Show us the way, Orange One.
