After the horrific event at #Charlottesville, VA... our @POTUS addresses the media.

This was done shortly after the murder of innocent protesters; however the full situation was not known at the time.

Regardless, here are @POTUS Trump’s initial comments:
No SANE person could even remotely twist what POTUS Trump stated and magically turn it into a racist statement.

His comments were that of unity, love of country and of each other; REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION or CREED!
Of course, Pres Trump’s initial comments weren’t good enough for the #FakeNews Media. As such, an impromptu presser was held a few days later. It was at this one where Trump’s comments were taken COMPLETELY and KNOWINGLY out of context. The following is the FULL TRANSCRIPT:
The #FakeNews Media start injecting their own narrative into the line of questioning by shouting out “David Duke was there” & “Nazis were there”

These aren’t questions. They are statements, and Pres Trump didn’t even need to address their absurd attempt to take him off message
The #FakeNews Media attempt to bait Pres Trump into assigning some “moral equivalency” between “Neo-Nazi’s” and the “Alt-Left” (the news Media falsely assigns a high moral value to the left, and an obvious low moral value to Neo-Nazi’s)

Trump stays on message and reports FACTS!
#FinePeopleOnBothSides ... the news media once again tries to DEBATE and ENTANGLE the President instead of asking valid questions.

@POTUS Trump reported FACTS: Not everyone at the protest was a Nazi, nor an ANTIFA member (& therefore good folks on both sides)

Note: Washington
The President made no assertion that white supremacists were good, nor that everyone there was a white supremacist, nor that everyone on the left was an ANTIFA member.

POTUS also correctly assessed the left would want to erase history with Washington as they are right now!
This INSANITY and DERELICTION OF DUTY by the News Media to report on FACTS and not insert opinion unless clearly marked as such, is a complete BREACH OF TRUST OF OUR #FourthEstate (which keeps everyone accountable, in theory)
The News Media was the final “Checks & Balance” of Power in our country (hence, the Fourth Estate label).

There was not a single racist statement or innuendo in anything Trump said.

The MEDIA created the #RacistHoax and now 2020 candidates state it as fact.
Every major fact-checking source that has printed Trump’s full comments have either rejected any racist allegations, or have simply printed the full transcript with no comments at all (because they could be sued)

Thank you @mitchraider60 for prompting me to gather the transcripts and review them one final time.

From here on out, any time you see a 2020 candidate say that “Trump said there were good folks at Charlottesville” or the news media doing it again...
