The Media and policians have presented details of Trump's tweet concerning comments about a congress-woman who was born in Somalia in such a manner that makes hime seem like an Alf Garnot type racist bigot.
As soon as the Media and policitians kept repeating the details of Trump's along with the self rightous condemnation of Trump being a racistI became suspicious. Every news report and politicians' comments kept repeating the same thing almost word for word. Even Angelia Merkel joined in the Chorus.
The expression 'set them back' has been for many years the classic knee jerk cliché used by anyone who is displeased by the presence of people of foreign origin in his/her community. These people are indeed often racists bigots. Off course this is exactly the impression many people have had of Trump long before he made his recent controversal tweet.
After I checked out Trump's twitter, I found out that he said something completely different from what the Media reported.
Here is the transcript of what Trump actually said about people such as the Somalia born congress-woman.
'....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....'
It is not my intention to be an apologist for Trump, but MO he was basically saying that 'you have a check to say that my country is broken, but the one that you come from is even more broken.
After asking myself why the Media are distorting the details of Trump's I concluded that it was deliberately done inorder to create a smokescreen of outrage. Some people are of the opinion that it was doen to distract our attentions away from the controversy regarding Bill Clinton's visists to Jeffrey Epstein's 'paradise island'. IMO deliberately done inorder to distract our attention away from the escalating crisis regarding the US relations with Iran.
In other the Media would much rather present the image of Trump to be that of a racist rather than a warmonger.
