Trump Proves Truth Is Not His Friend

July 5, 2018

Last week two tweets from Trump made it, once again, well known that Donald Trump has a most profound problem with the truth.  Prior to a House vote on what was termed the ‘moderate’ immigration bill Trump tweeted the following.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY

This past Saturday Trump was clearly not remembering what had happened and sent off another tweet.

I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold. I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.

Fact is Trump tweeted his support for the bill, and said “House Republicans should pass” the bill.  His own words!

Trump even visited the House Republican Conference and urged them to vote for the Goodlatte bill. He had Republican lawmakers at the White House and asked them to vote for the legislation. He told Republicans he was behind them.

But then he turned 180 degrees and lied.

Scarier still is that many of his cult followers will not care he lied, or worse still, deny it even happened.
