After Fox News was one of the many networks to air President Donald Trump’s eight minute speech to the nation, it promptly stabbed him in the back.
While criticism of President Trump is expected for everything he does due to the liberal media’s hounding, it was sad to see Fox News jump on the pile with Anchor Shepard Smith refuting many of Trump’s claims.
Smith challenged that “the government’s statistics show that there is less violent crime by the undocumented immigrant population than by the general population.”
This was at odds with Trump’s assertion that “innocent people” were “horribly victimized” by illegal immigrants.
Another point Trump made was that the wall would prevent drugs from being brought into the country. Which Smith countered saying, “government statistics show much of the heroin actually comes not over the unguarded border but through ports of call.”
Finally when President Trump reiterated his claim that Mexico would indirectly pay for the border wall through the new trade deal, Smith fired back saying “that trade deal is not yet complete.”
