The American people are witnessing a president having a mental meltdown in real time on national television, as Trump’s thrown together press conference has been nothing but the President Of The United States attacking the media and trying to convince the American people that he isn’t a failure.
Trump began his press conference by announcing that Alex Acosta will be his new Labor Secretary nominee. Trump then complained about the media not reporting on his polls and took credit for the growing stock market. Trump tried to defend his failing presidency.
President Trump said, “The media has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people if we don’t talk about it. Tremendous disservice. We had to talk about it because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.”
Trump continued, “The media is going through what they have to go through to often times distort, not all the time, and some of it is fantastic.” Trump also claimed that the media represents the special interests and that they are not telling the American people the truth, which is why he has to speak directly to the people.
The President’s press conference consisted of no questions initially as Trump has spent the whole early segment defending his presidency and listing off every single thing that he has done in office.
