FAKE NEWS STORIES ON TRUMP
Donald Trump has promised to hold the media responsible for their "dishonest" reporting. After all it was confirmed that 19 out of every 20 (96%) campaign dollars donated by the media industry was given to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And that Wikileaks exposed the media for colluding with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party on various occasions. Also that a scientist developed algorithm confirmed liberal media bias. And also self-proclaimed Democratic journalists outnumber Republicans by 4-to-1.
-Within President Trump's first month in office the mainstream media consistently reported "Trump-Russian ties". The problem however was US Intelligence agencies such as the FBI and Obama’s Intelligence Chief found absolutely no evidence of such a claim by the liberal media.
-Mainstream media reported the illegal immigration raids under President Trump's executive order in Feb 2016 was going after "innocent immigrants". However much of the media failed to mention the raids consisted of approximately three-fourths (75%) of the 680 arrested having prior criminal convictions. The mainstream media also failed to mention that a record number of people were deported during Obama's tenure as President.
-Media reporting that Donald Trump did not pay any taxes. However it turned out that Donald Trump paid $38 million in income taxes in 2005 alone. In fact Donald Trump paid a higher tax rate than Obama and Bernie Sanders that year. He also paid millions in property taxes. As far as income taxes? Well he simply used the legal tax laws in place to pay as little income taxes as possible citing "I fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible". He did so by writing off his loses just like most every other American does. The truth is everyone who files their annual taxes attempts to pay as little as taxes as legally required by looking for a plethora of write offs. In fact 45% of Americans paid no federal income tax at all. Finally it should be point out at the same time Donald Trump was using the tax laws to pay as little taxes as possible, so were the big tech companies like Google and Facebook.
-Media falsely accusing, then GOP Presidential candidate, Donald Trump of mocking the disability of a reporter. They conveniently failed to report Trump's history of making that same hand gesture for years when addressing several different people, including himself. Although in hindsight Donald Trump should have chosen a different method than his usual hand gesture mocking when speaking about reporter Serge Kovaleski.
What made the media even look more biased and fake in the eyes of many was the fact that none of the mainstream media seemed to care when President Obama mocked the disabled Special Olympics.
- Once Donald Trump won the presidential election, the media seemed to seek out stories about how Trump supporters had abused others. Turns out most of those stories have turned out to be exaggerations, not related to Trump, or just plain lies. In fact many argue that there is an epidemic of false reports of hate crimes in America.
-The media consistently reported that many of Trump supporters were acting violently at the Trump rallies. But the fact is it was the liberal anarchists who were getting paid by the powerful Democrat supporters to riot and disrupt the Trump rallies, including the fiasco in Chicago. In addition, a sting video proved a Democratic organization was paying and providing anti Trump antagonists across the country.

The fact is that only 3% of the Meals on Wheels budget nationally comes from the federal government. And only a portion of that 3% comes from the Community Development Block Grant that Trump cut. This grant is a federal boondoggle that’s largely been used for waste and fraud. It costs $3 billion per year. “The Federal Government has spent over $150 billion on this block grant since its inception in 1974, but the program is not well-targeted to the poorest populations and has not demonstrated results". So there you have it. The media fakely reporting that President Trump cut funding to Meals on Wheels.

In fact it was reported that people from the Obama administration could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials.
