The media is very picky. Depending on the network, certain news stories are presented as they occur or are twisted for a headline that best aligns with the networks’ views. Both sides of the political spectrum are to blame as Fox News tends to be more conservative and CNN and MSNBC tend to be more liberal.
Because of this disruptive behavior, popular liberal media has neglected to show the most recent tolerant actions and orders of President Trump. The main focus is to continue the degradation of the president.
February 27th: An executive order from the president’s desk is signed to dramatically increase funding to historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). Trump expressed that these institutions are “an absolute priority for this White House”, in compliance with PBS Iowa. These are the actions that were covered up by the liberal media when these networks decided, instead, to mock Kellyanne Conway’s sitting position on the oval office’s couch.
February 28th: The president signed a bill that aims to recruit more women into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers and programs. According to the Chicago Tribune, President Trump stated that it’s “unfair that only 1 in 4 women with a degree in one of these areas works in the field.”
Earlier in January, President Trump and the White House staff agreed to continue Former President Barack Obama’s executive order protecting LGBTQ rights in the workplace. Under Trump’s administration, employers and working environments may not discriminate on someone based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. This type of policy is a rarity with past presidents in the GOP.
Finally, as if the speech addressed to Congress last Tuesday wasn’t empowering enough, Wall Street trusted Trump’s positivity and confidence of his tax reform plans and deregulation policies. This trust pushed the Dow Jones industrial average, a record high, of over 21,000.
If news networks and students on campus are consistently repressing President Trump and his actions while placing a tyrannical spin on his demeanor, you’re never going to get the full story. Real policies are being enacted and real change is happening. Based on his recent operations, the president is pushing for inclusion and is striving to become a leader for all Americans.
