Trump Calls NYT Story on Russia Power Grid Attack “Treason”
The New York Times printed an article saying that the United States is ramping up its cyber intrusions into Russia’s power grid, and the president is not happy.
The story in the @nytimes about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is Fake News, and the Failing New York Times knows it. They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony. Times must be held fully accountable!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2019
NYT claims — from unknown sources, of course — that the US has bored into Russian utility systems as a way to deter future cyber activity from the country. Trump has denied that the story is true and said that it is a virtual act of treason.
Who do you believe? The New York Times, who is constantly using “unnamed sources” and lying through their teeth, or the President of the United States?
Trump Refuses Apology to Central Park Five
In 1989, Trump took out a full-page ad saying that five boys under the age of 17 deserved the death penalty for raping and assaulting a woman in Central Park. It was discovered in 2001 that the boys were innocent when someone else confessed to the crimes and was backed up by DNA evidence.
Even though the five men have been out of prison for almost sixteen-years, he is now being asked to apologize. While the timing of this seems odd, considering he just officially started his re-election campaign, the Left is always looking for a reason to bully the president.
Trump is refusing to apologize because the boys admitted they were guilty, and that is the information he was going off of when he released the ad.
Trump Makes Threats Against Iran
Donald Trump is not about to let Iran get its hands on nuclear weapons.
Last week Iran attacked oil tankers belonging to Norway and Japan in the Gulf of Oman. Trump was not phased by this attack as the United States doesn’t get very much oil from there, especially compared to places like China and Japan.
While Trump has made it clear that he is not threatened by this, the U.S. has sent jet warplanes, B-52 bombers, Patriot missile batteries and the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group to Iran in response to the attack. The president has made it clear that this is just a little bit of what Iran can expect if they even think about acquiring nuclear weapons.
