I think it’s safe to say that Trump and the liberal media don’t see eye-to-eye. For years, the former president has criticized the MSM, calling most outlets “fake news.” He even called CNN “very fake news” on more than one occasion. So, we are not at all surprised that the presidential candidate is calling out America’s largest media outlets for covering something up.
But this was something few people would have guessed. Trump has long been a critic of America’s involvement in wars overseas. He ended conflicts while in office. And he is strongly opposed to Joe Biden’s bankrolling of the Ukraine war. But what he said about what’s going on over there will have everyone sit up and listen.
Former President Donald Trump said during an event on Tuesday evening that the legacy media was lying about Russia’s war in Ukraine by underplaying how bad the death and destruction truly are…
“… Hundreds of people and thousands of people were killed. You’re gonna find out when this whole thing is over that the number of people killed is far greater than they tell you. They’re not telling you the truth. Many, many thousands, hundreds of thousands of people are dying. There cities are being obliterated.”
“And basically they say, ‘What’s your stance? Are you for Russia or are for–? I’m for one thing, very simple,” he added. “I want to stop people from getting killed and I’ll have it stopped, fast.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Woah. Trump said during an interview that the media was lying about the impact of the war in Ukraine. He pointed out that entire cities have been reduced to rubble, like a “demolition zone.” He then said the media reports that only a few people are hurt.
That has been the pattern of reports by our media on the war. But Trump is accusing the media of lying saying that hundreds and thousands are being killed by the conflict. He even predicted that when everything is said and done the number of deaths will be “far greater” than what the media is saying.
Part of the reason so many areas of Ukraine appear deserted is due to widespread evacuations. Many Ukrainians have fled their homeland to Poland and other surrounding countries. But it does seem unlikely that such massive devastation, seen in some parts of the country, could not have resulted in death.
The leftist media, suddenly so supportive of war, have criticized Trump’s reaction to the war. Trump has condemned America’s involvement, even as other Republicans throw their support at it.
Trump has been clear that he is opposed to the death and destruction that this war is spreading. But Joe Biden’s efforts have not slowed down the killing, just the opposite. It is possible that the media is lying about the number of deaths, in order to protect Biden’s pro-war policy.
