Just as suspected. Trump reads a speech written for him and discusses eliminating the partisan bickering, call for unity.

Then at midnight, he slams the Hispanic name of the DEM Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke.

Again, have to say it.

I TOLD YOU SO. I knew whatever he said during that solemn, faked speech that it was nothing but typical Trump B.S.

So unpresidential.

Delete your post or ask a moderator to delete it.
You are correct, I put the wrong link. I am trying to figure out how to edit it to the correct one. Thanks for the heads up.

Of course it does. What is Alex Jones telling you you should be thinking on these mass shooters?

Of course, the problem with that is you aren't just getting the unfiltered story, you are getting the spin of your chosen "news" provider. Each and every mainstream "news" source has their own agenda, which they happily shove down the consumers throats through every story they report. The only way we ever really get the full picture is by actually looking into things ourselves. Cut out the middle men when it comes to information and dig a little for yourself. Saying "I'll let CNN tell me what he said" is insane, because they aren't actually going to tell you everything he said. They will simply cherry-pick things like his so-called "manifesto" for key phrases which go along with their agenda, and report that to you. These networks don't care that they are feeding us only half the story most of the time, because whatever half they have chosen to feed us furthers their goals and standing with their primary audience. If you really want to know what's going on, you must dig a little for yourself and try to piece together the whole story. Otherwise, you are running around with only a piece of the story instead of the whole thing, leaving you unable to truly voice a true opinion on pretty much any subject. Instead, you simply find yourself regurgitating whatever Wolf or Hannity fed you that evening.
i'd bet all the money i have in my wallet that happyrider was being facetious.

You didn't tell anyone anything. Not sure what else you would expect any president to do on a visit like that, it's as predictable as a bear ****ting in the woods.

The media's misrepresentation of the reasons for this murderer's actions are a thousand times worse than what the killer did because they will lead to a thousand times more death.
These are just excerpts, carefully chosen to lead you to see (true or not) that it was not motivated by things Trump says.

I've not read the entire thing, but I'm given to understand that much of it parrots Trump's talking points and those of his base. I CANNOT VERIFY THAT, as I have not read it. But I can quote the OP on this thread and remind you that what you read was just excerpts, which could very well be the misrepresenation you speak of, only in the other direction.

In any case, a partial document cannot prove (nor disprove) that his reasons had nothing to do with anything. From this, you simply don't know what else was in the manifesto.

And anti-corporation. All definitely left-wing ideology.

He was not "right wing"

Democrats right here on CD have express that they do not agree with open borders invasion. Mexican is not a race. It is a nationality.
