We can definitely expect the news media to pull some tricks to try to shift the narrative. Apparently, this will include some creative editing.
A man who works as an Iraqi interpreter was temporarily detained at JFK Airport after Trump’s executive order on refugees was signed. The man said he liked Trump. ABC knows they can’t have that, so they edited that portion of his remarks out.

The networks that were honest enough to show the full comments were also treated to a hilarious reaction by liberal activist Rep. Nydia Velazquez.
After Velazquez heard this foreigner say that he liked President Trump, we see her with a look of shock in her eyes followed by her shaking her head in disbelief, but, of course, if you watched ABC, you wouldn’t have even seen that exchange at all.
The fact that ABC edited these comments out did not sit too well with Twitter users, who called ABC out as nothing more than “fake news.”
I agree — only a fake news outlet would deliberately omit such an important comment from their coverage.
This Iraqi interpreter is probably used to being held up at airports, but it has nothing to do with his personal heritage. It has more to do with the nature of how the world works in this day and age. You see, other countries are often very strict about who they might allow within their borders.
One example is Canada, and as I’m sure you are aware, they are hardly a bastion of conservatism. If you are headed into this country and something goes wrong, there can even be times when you are held up for an entire day, via Vessel News.
So, considering other countries are serious about security, it’s about time we were as well! Not only that, but it’s also time to put the media’s false narratives where they belong. It is nothing more than sensationalist hysteria, especially considering the fact that Barack Obama did similar things without any controversy because he was a media darling.
Here is the video with his full comments about Trump… and that look from Rep. Velazquez… priceless!

Of course, this always happens with Republican presidents. However, make no bones about it, I admire President Trump MORE for actually keeping his word in this important area, not less.
