“Fact Checkers” from the Clinton News Network are liars. —>
Breitbart’s Julia Hahn correctly pointed out in this article published on 6/23 that CNN’s “fact check” of Donald Trump’s most recent speech on the Clinton crime family was nothing but leftist/establishment propaganda.
The segment was remarkable in that it not only revealed CNN’s profound ignorance of federal immigration policy, but an examination of the segment’s transcript also reveals that CNN ignored and blatantly distorted what Trump had actually said. Breitbart
Evidently, CNN’s Tom Foreman assumed the average American would not bother to “fact check” the “fact checkers.” The television personality claimed Trump’s statement on Hillary Clinton’s refugee policy was “false” despite it being grounded in fact.
“The reality check team was very busy during all of this (speech),” Foreman said. “Trump attacked Clinton’s plan to increase the number of Syrian refugees taken into America.”
He then delivered the following diatribe:
He was talking about this in reference to the Syria program in context of his speech. So let’s look at the reality there. President Obama has said he’d like to get 10,000 Syrian refugees in here by the end of September this year. Yes, Hillary Clinton has talked about increasing that substantially to 65,000 people being brought in in the near term. Still, that is not hundreds of thousands of people out there. And more importantly, she has said that none of these people should come in without the most stringent screening and vetting process. Now granted there are security analysts who say it’s very hard to have an infallible system and especially hard when you talk about Syria where the civil war makes checking the backgrounds of people very, very, difficult. That said if you look at his overall claim: hundreds of thousands, no checking whatsoever, that is simply false.
Of course, Foreman’s claims were utterly false:
First and most glaringly, Foreman distorts Trump’s statement to change its meaning. Trump did not say that Clinton would admit hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees. Rather, Trump said that under Clinton’s plan the U.S. “would admit hundreds of thousands of refugees from the most dangerous countries on Earth.” [emphasis added].
Trump made clear that these were refugees coming from multiple “countries”— i.e. plural— not just Syria.
CNN is apparently unaware that the 65,000 Syrian refugees Clinton wants to admit into the United States would be in addition to the tens of thousands of refugees the U.S. already admits each year. Thus, the additional 65,000 Syrian refugees would come on top of the roughly 33,000 refugees and asylees the U.S. already admits from the Middle East each year. Adding in Clinton’s refugee admissions from across the Muslim world, this means that under Clinton’s plan, the U.S. would admit at least 105,000 thousand refugees from the Muslim world in a single year, based on data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Foreman similarly did not seem to grasp that these refugee numbers are annual figures. If elected President, Clinton would presumably be in office for more than one year. As such, Trump is correct to say that under her plan, Clinton would admit hundreds of thousands refugees from the most dangerous countries on Earth during her presidency. Breitbart
The Clinton News Network, a propaganda arm of the globalist establishment, has been caught lying (yet again) and intentionally distorting information in an effort to smear the real estate tycoon at the behest of their corporate overlords.
The reality is, Trump’s anti-Hillary speech resonated with voters because it was a factual analysis of her corrupt political career. The Republican nominee revealed that wherever Hillary has gone, corruption, scandals, lies, cronyism and deceit have followed.
CNN’s predictable response, a “fact checking” segment with no credible facts, proved that Trump’s address was a home run.
