Trump uses slur to praise right wing social media extremists for unbelievable’ posts at White House ‘Summit’

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s “social media summit” was open to the press for only part of the time but some images, video, and stories managed to get out, and it seems like the summit was more remedial than advanced.

Trump praised attendees – reportedly mostly right wing extremists, Trump supporters, conspiracy theorists, and bigots – for the “unbelievable” “crap” they post.

Really:

It’s impossible to know what “crap” the President was referring to but it would not be a stretch to presume he’s talking about conspiracy theories, fake news, and false attacks on the left.

It’s unclear why the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., was invited

A Fox News pundit on Monday said the Trump administration had no choice but to release a transcript of a controversial call with Ukraine's president, in which Trump allegedly pressured the foreign country to investigate his potential Democratic rival Joe Biden.

Trump has insisted that the call with Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelenskiy was "largely congratulatory" and focused on corruption. But the Trump administration attempted to block a whistleblower complaint about the conversation.

Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter played a critical role in helping Russia-affiliated trolls disseminate propaganda to divide and manipulate voters in the 2016 presidential election.

But it hasn't stopped. A new report from the Vietnam Veterans Association has uncovered an ongoing two-year effort by actors in several foreign countries, including Russia, to target U.S. veterans and servicemembers.

President Donald Trump on Monday snapped at reporters after he was asked about his alleged attempts to have Ukraine's president fabricate dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

As Trump arrived at the U.N., he was asked how seriously he took the impeachment threat.

"Not at all seriously," the president said dismissively. "I had a perfect phone call with the president of Ukraine. Everybody knows it. It’s just a Democrat witch hunt. Here we go again. They failed with Russia, they failed with recession and everything, and now they’re bringing this up."

According to Trump, "the one who's got the problem is Biden."
