Donald Trump is once again gaslighting America. On Tuesday, the former reality show star said that what people are seeing and reading in the media about America’s economy is “not what’s happening.” Sure, only believe what serial liar Donald Trump says and no one else.
“This country is doing better than it ever has before, economically,” Trump said with a straight face at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Kansas City, Mo. “It’s all working out. Just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”
Trump said that voters should “just stick with us.”
“Don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news,” Trump said before claiming that farmers would be the “biggest beneficiary” of his trade war.
Pres. Trump says “this is the time” for tariffs: “This country is doing better than it’s ever has before, economically…It’s all working out. Just remember: what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.” https://t.co/aRY8xSowuo pic.twitter.com/shX65JiNMs

Trump said that because he’s already affecting farmers’ livelihoods because just hours before, news broke stating that the Trump administration will provide about $12 billion in financial aid to farmers who are negatively affected by his tariffs. And that’s obviously $12 billion he would have had to spend of our money if he hadn’t launched a trade war.
“This is obviously a short-term solution that will give President Trump time to work on a long-term trade policy and deal to benefit agriculture as well as all sectors of the American economy,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told reporters.
“The programs we are announcing today are a firm statement that other nations cannot bully our agricultural producers to force the United States to cave in,” Perdue added.
Trump, who said that the Russian interference in our election is a hoax, tweeted that “Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election.” And somehow, he claimed that Russia will be pushing for Democrats to win (LOL).
The reason I brought that up is so that you won’t believe “what you’re seeing” in his Twitter timeline.
Trump is holding an ego-rally on July 31st and that happens to be the same day as former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s trial.
