The Fake News Media and Democrat Party are throwing everything at President Trump to derail his re-election bid.
But they just sunk to a disgusting new low.
And Donald Trump just shut down a New York Times conspiracy theory about the U.S. military.
The New York Times reported what they claimed was a bombshell story that the Trump administration allegedly knew since March that the Russians paid the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan.
Democrats want to erode Republicans’ usual advantage with military voters so The Times ran a dubious story claiming President Trump knew the Russians were targeting American soldiers for assassination and did nothing because he is beholden to Vladimir Putin.
But Donald Trump shot down the fake news story in a series of tweets, first debunking The Times’ claim that the President was briefed on the Russians paying the Taliban bounties to kill American citizens.
“Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows
about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an ‘anonymous source’ by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us,” the President said.
“Nobody’s been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration,” Trump continued. “With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine – Where’s Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their ‘source”?’
In a subsequent Tweet the President refuted The Times’ claim that American intelligence knew for a fact that the Russians were paying bounties for dead American soldiers noting that his intelligence officials did not brief him on the matter because they did not consider it credible.
“Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!” the President added.
In an election year Americans expect all sorts of attacks.
But The New York Times accusing the President of allowing the Russians to pay blood bounties to kill American troops crossed a line.
