Good words from #1 White House Journalist

The head of the White House Correspondents' Association has complimented the Trump Administration for essentially being open to the press. I'm not ready to call this an achievement, but even despite criticizing the MSM and its bias, the Trump Administration is not avoiding the press.[1] --1990'sguy (talk) 14:41, 6 August 2017 (EDT)

Backtracking from Charlottesville political incorrectness?

Yesterday, Trump spoke highly of left-wing activists protesting a conservative free speech rally.[2][3][4] It seems that he is backtracking from his earlier comments that there is due blame on both sides for hatred and violence -- and this example seems like a very bad one to do this, because while in Charlottesville most of the protestors (not the counter-protestors) were white supremacists (even though I did read somewhere, maybe The Hill or The Washington Examiner -- I forgot -- that not all of them were), but in the Boston protests, they appear to be mainstream conservatives. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:42, 20 August 2017 (EDT)

Michael Savage has the same opinion of this as me: [5] --1990'sguy (talk) 19:21, 21 August 2017 (EDT)
Some more potentially-useful sources: 1,2,3
I tried looking for the article I read in August 2017 (either at the Washington Examiner, The Hill, or Washington Times) stating that there were actual conservatives at the 2017 rally who were frustrated at being equated with white supremacists -- but I couldn't find it. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:01, 7 April 2019 (EDT)

Likely failure to call radical Islamic terrorism what it is

Trump and every cabinet member who gave speeches today did not mention radical Islamic terrorism, and they even went out of their way to disavow any connections the terrorists have with Islam.[6][7] --1990'sguy (talk) 17:50, 11 September 2017 (EDT)

Another article on it: [8] --1990'sguy (talk) 16:44, 12 September 2017 (EDT)

More sources: [10] --1990'sguy (talk) 08:54, 13 September 2017 (EDT)
Trump's speech, however, was reported to be more aggressive, possibly indicating a more interventionist foreign policy.[11] --1990'sguy (talk) 17:10, 12 September 2017 (EDT)
McMaster is probably to blame for the lack of "radical Islamic terrorism" in the speeches: [12] --1990'sguy (talk) 16:32, 13 September 2017 (EDT)
More interesting sources about this: [13][14][15][16] --1990'sguy (talk) 21:45, 16 September 2017 (EDT)

Despite the 9/11 speech, Trump did mention "radical Islamic terrorism" in a speech at Joint Base Andrews four days after 9/11.[17][18][19] Still, the 9/11 speech was more important, and the lack of the term was in more than just Trump's own speech. I'm still disappointed in the PC. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:45, 16 September 2017 (EDT)

"Feuding" with other officials helping Trump's agenda

Trump stated that feuding going on between him and establishment politicians (such as Bob Corker) ultimately helps his agenda.[20][21] --1990'sguy (talk) 18:34, 22 October 2017 (EDT)

Trump and conservative talk radio

While CNN states that Trump has not been appearing on conservative talk radio stations,[22] other sources show that he has taken interviews on at least some notable ones.[23][24][25] --1990'sguy (talk) 17:41, 22 December 2017 (EST)

Extra sources

Here's a source that might be useful for this article but that I don't want to add yet: [26] --1990'sguy (talk) 21:35, 12 January 2018 (EST)

Trump recently took credit for exposing fake news in the U.S., something that, at least to an extent, is true: [27] --1990'sguy (talk) 23:02, 16 May 2018 (EDT)
This article pretty clearly shows that Trump is only joking, but it's still interesting enough to post here -- that Trump admits he sometimes caves to political correctness: [28] --1990'sguy (talk) 00:52, 20 June 2018 (EDT)
Somewhat interesting and possibly useful article about Trump and fake news in the UK: [29] --1990'sguy (talk) 19:38, 13 July 2018 (EDT)

Politically incorrect, of course, but I think it's good that Trump is bluntly criticizing the Left and the Obama Administration: [31] --1990'sguy (talk) 22:22, 28 November 2018 (EST)

Some good statements by Trump on a variety of issues earlier today: 1,2 --1990'sguy (talk) 14:16, 21 August 2019 (EDT)

The NIH director stated he would not attend panels that only have men: 1,2 This isn't very significant, but it's caving to the Left's political correctness which focuses on identity politics and how people look rather than the content on their character. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:38, 12 June 2019 (EDT)

Trump proven right again: Sweden

President Trump's comments on the massive increase in crime in Sweden due to mass migration have been proven correct, as the country's prime minister effectively admitted and as Trump himself noted: [35] --1990'sguy (talk) 22:47, 6 March 2018 (EST)

College free speech

Trump stated recently that he does not think free speech is in any serious risk on college campuses -- and he said it at an event organized by an organization that defends college free speech: [36] Yikes. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:49, 23 March 2018 (EDT)

Polls about the MSM

I was considering adding this info to the article, but I decided not to, at least for now, because the poll does not appear to have had anything directly to do with Trump. Either way, the poll seems to show that Trump's attacks on the media are working (though the sources don't say this directly). --1990'sguy (talk) 14:47, 2 April 2018 (EDT)

Here's another poll that shows that young Americans distrust the media more than Trump: [37] It might be good to add, but it's a poll, and while there's less trust of the media compared to President Trump, both are low according to this poll. --1990'sguy (talk) 11:27, 11 April 2018 (EDT)
The problem is, distrust in the MSM doesn't always mean they find better sources. I know a lot of young people say that Twitter is where they get their news. Twitter is not a news agency, so clearly this news is coming from somewhere, and they don't even know where. Typically, it either comes from random people, or the MSM.... --David B (TALK) 11:41, 11 April 2018 (EDT)
This poll shows that almost half of Americans disapprove of the media's handling of its coverage of Trump: [38] If I can find more sources about this, I might add it. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:29, 30 July 2018 (EDT)
A majority of Republicans agree with Trump's "enemy of the people" characterization of the media: [39] --1990'sguy (talk) 22:36, 14 August 2018 (EDT)

This article is really about AOC, but it shows that Trump's Twitter reach is very large -- larger than probably anyone ever, by a lot: [44] --1990'sguy (talk) 18:17, 13 January 2019 (EST)

Good statements

Trump praised Robert E. Lee at a campaign rally a couple days ago: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 I considered adding this to the article, but this really shouldn't be controversial, since it's pretty obvious that Lee was a good general, and he's been widely respected until just a few years ago. --1990'sguy (talk) 13:35, 14 October 2018 (EDT)

Some of the sources above also note that the media took Trump's quotes out of context, suggesting this is more of a media bias issue rather than one related to political incorrectness. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:53, 15 October 2018 (EDT)
Good statements by Trump that troll Jim Acosta's unwitting defense of the border wall, though I don't think they're significant enough to add to the article: 1,2 --1990'sguy (talk) 18:58, 11 January 2019 (EST)
