Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, many political pundits claimed that Donald Trump didn’t really want to win the election and instead would use his loss to drive interest in what may eventually become a Donald Trump-owned television station, ‘Trump TV’. The station, which could eventually take on the likes of Fox News, would essentially be Trump’s chance at making even more money through his millions of supporters who likely would have been fueled by a Clinton victory.
Things didn’t work out that way and Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the United States. Any while plans of a profit-driven Trump TV never got to take off, this afternoon Trump TV did in fact launch.
President Trump’s re-election campaign has just launched a weekly news segment, for their official Facebook channel, hiring CNN’s Kayleigh McEnany. For those who watch CNN, you will recognize McEnany as the blonde commentator who would stick up for the President no matter what he did or said. It appears as if the news segment will be released each week and outline what the President has done over the past seven days.
Below is just a taste of the skewed news that the President’s campaign is now serving up to the American people from Trump Tower in New York.
“More great economic news on Friday,” McEnany announced on the program, “The July jobs report added a better than expected 209,000 jobs. Overall, since the president took office, he has created more than 1 million jobs. The unemployment rate is at a 16 year low, and consumer confidence is at a 16 year high — all while the Dow Jones continued to break records. President Trump has clearly steered the economy back in the right direction,” she added.
“On Wednesday, the president introduced the RAISE Act. For decades, a steady rise in immigration has depressed the wages of American workers. The RAISE Act will increase wages, decrease poverty, and save the taxpayers billions,” she said. “Americans deserve a raise, and President Trump is finally putting the American worker first.”
If these embellishments aren’t enough to make you feel as though you are a Russian citizen watching Sputnik or RT, then perhaps the way that McEnany signed off will.
“Thank you for joining us, everybody. I’m Kayleigh McEnany, and that is the real news,” she said to signoff.
