Leftists paint false picture of Trump

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion While promoting his movie at the Cannes Film Festival, Spike Lee during a press conference launched into a profanity-laced tirade against President Trump. These vitriolic attacks have become common by the Hollywood community. It plays well in front of a leftist crowd like Cannes. But ultimately, his inflammatory commentary only exacerbates the divisive tone and further divides the nation’s political differences.The media will never challenge Lee to explain facts that contradict the narrative that Trump is a racist, such as the record unemployment of African-Americans and Hispanics, the huge drop in enrollment of the food stamp program or the increase in wages for the working class. These achievements are the opposite of the agenda of a white supremacist. Yet Lee and countless leftists continue to smear the president with this ubiquitous charge, while the media is happy to provide them with an unfettered platform.President Obama had the cool style and swagger that inspired millions to buy into his message of hope and change. But he failed to deliver any substantive results for the black community.For all his blunt talk and bluster, President Trump has delivered results that are making a positive difference in people’s day-to-day lives. The actions the president has taken to cut regulations and create jobs are much more significant than his clumsily spoken words that the media takes out of context in a concerted effort to paint him as a racist.William AikenSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcylast_img
