Tuesday and Wednesday were busy days for the President of the United States, both in his role as the chief legislator and tweeter-in-chief.
Trump trolled the Left twice within the same 24 hours by showing off the empty chairs where Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were supposed to be meeting him and then when he re-tweeted videos from Britain First.
In the background of the President’s antics, Tax Reform is making its way through the Senate at record-speeds. It’s even looking like the major legislation will receive full Republican support, given that declared no-votes Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Bob Corker (R-TN) voted in favor of the bill when it came up for a vote in the Senate Finance Committee earlier this week.
But, that’s not the top story on the main stream media’s radar this week, and that’s thanks to the President.
On Tuesday, the President was scheduled to meet with Democratic Congressional Leaders “Chuck and Nancy” but they didn’t show up. The meeting was meant to address the looming budget deadline coming in early December. If Republicans and Democrats can’t vote for a budget in the Senate (60 votes needed) by the deadline then the government will shut down.
Trump wanted to make sure that the American people rightfully blame the Democrats for their latest attempts at obstruction. So, he spoke to the press live from the conference room where they were supposed to meet, with Schumer and Pelosi’s chairs beside him, empty. The powerful visual was clearly done on purpose, and the President slammed Democrats for being unwilling to come to the table.
On Twitter, Pelosi called the whole thing a “stunt.” Well, of course it was, and Pelosi only has herself to blame for being on the butt-end of it.
The next morning, the President went on one of his famous tweet-storms in which he shared three videos from Britain First – a radical anti-Muslim fringe group in the UK. The videos he shared depicted violent Muslim youths attacking individuals and desecrating Christian statutes.

Of note, one video, which supposedly depicted a Muslim boy attacking another boy who was on crutches, was proven to actually involve two Dutch boys neither of whom were Muslim.
Still, the media erupted in a frenzy, saying that its outrageous for the President of the United States to be sharing such content from a foreign fringe group. Nevermind the actual content itself, which is the message the President is actually trying to convey.
The media and the Left believe that this is about racism. It’s not, it’s about safety. Once again, the media overreaches and fails to acknowledge the actual problems being faced by European nations who have suffered from lax immigration and refugee policies.
Refugees from the Middle East arrive in European nations where, instead of assimilating, they congregate and build communities among themselves. The result is violent and intolerant enclaves where religion (Shariah Law) and race dictate, and violence against different groups prevails.
The President is correct in raising awareness of this issue, because it is exactly the outcome of Liberal “tolerance” policies with respect to immigration and refugee resettlement. Trump campaigned on a platform that is vehemently against this, not because he hates Muslims, but because he;s rightfully wary of ANY people who wouldn’t assimilate or embrace the American creeds of peace, freedom and liberty whilst living here.
But, the Leftist media would rather call him a racist rather than actually cover the real issues. Their job is to investigate the issues, and the President’s troll on them shows that they would rather beat on him than actually look into a very serious issue that’s happening in Western countries.
President Trump – 2, Liberal Media – 0.
