MSM Proves Yet Again They Don't Understand Trump
The MSM has been pedaling so much hate towards the president for the past four years that they don't realize that he was simply trying to better the lives of Americans. That's why Make America Great Again was all about. But MSM hosts from ABC and NBC were mystified by Trump's move to increase the stimulus checks to each American to $2000.
Dan Harris from ABC's "Good Morning America" asked Anti Trump why he would ask for more money for Americans.
"HARRIS: You've been watching President Trump even before he was president. You've been watching his public life for a long time, as you wrote about it in your book. So, do you have an inkling, do you have a sense of what his end game could be here? Is it a principled stand, is it a play for attention, is it neither or both? What do you think?
KARL: I think what is going on here, Dan, is the President realized -- he's the negotiator. He takes pride in being the ultimate negotiator. He realized this is the last moment of supreme leverage that he may have as president. This is a bill that absolutely must pass or we'll see a government shutdown. We'll see, you know, people thrown off the unemployment rolls. So, he belatedly realized, “Hey, here’s my chance to put my big mark on it.” I don't think there was a lot of strategy on it beyond that."
Hallie Jackson from NBC's "Sunday Today" asked Jake Sherman from Politico
HALLIE JACKSON: You described it as befuddling. Jake, you know I covered the White House for NBC News, and even people close to the President that I've talked to don't quite understand in some ways the motivation here. Talk about any political benefit potentially for the President. Obviously if Americans are hearing, hey, the president wants to get me more money, that's a good thing. But the deal is done, and the President's own administration members, as you referenced, actually worked on this.
JAKE SHERMAN: You're right. I don't know what the possible political motivation could be, Hallie. His presidency is over. He's going to -- he could have potentially ruined the chance for Republicans to hold on to the Senate. There's two special elections in Georgia coming up in the next couple of weeks. His party is being routinely and roundly blamed for this impasse.
I don't understand at all what he's trying to do. I guess you could say he's trying to get more money for the American people. But again, if they're not getting unemployment, if the government shuts down at a time where so many people are relying on government aid, I don't know what the benefit is at all to the President.
These Libs are acting confused as to why Trump would care when that is all he has been doing for his whole presidency. Dems just never realized because they were focused on non-Americans whereas Trump was focused on the welfare of American citizens. He was trying to negotiate better trade deals with allies, strengthen our border security to prevent bad elements from coming here, and he was working to better the economy for Americans. So of course Trump wanted to give us a stimulus check just as big or more than the last one.
