Trump vs. The Atlantic
Last night a story broke in The Atlantic claiming the president refused to attend a ceremony honoring our World War I veterans and even insulted our deceased war heroes during a trip to France in 2018. Yes, this story is based on something that The Atlantic claims took place nearly two years ago.
All the sources are anonymous. It seems likely that if someone heard these alleged remarks two years ago, it would have come out then.
When the president arrived at Andrews Air Force Base late last night, he stopped to address several reporters and blasted the story.
The president said:
"It's a total lie; it's fake news. It's a disgrace, and frankly it's a disgrace to your profession. . . If people really exist that would have said that, they're lowlifes and they're liars. And I would be willing to swear on anything that I never said that about our fallen heroes. There is nobody that respects them more. . . What animal would say such a thing?"
Multiple people who were there with him in France also refuted The Atlanticreport. Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted: "The Atlantic story on Donald Trump is total BS. I was actually there and one of the people part of the discussion – this never happened."
Jordan Karem, the president's former body man, tweeted: "Again, this is 100% false. I was next to @POTUS the whole day! The President was greatly disappointed when told we couldn't fly there. He was incredibly eager to honor our Fallen Heroes."
Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino tweeted, "I was with POTUS in France . . . Complete lies by 'anonymous sources.'"
It's been a tough week for the progressive left, which seems to believe it can only prosper if America is laid low.
- We got hints from the CDC that a vaccine might be available by the end of October.
- Earlier this week, we learned that manufacturing activity surged to its highest level in 16 years.
- Yesterday, we learned that weekly jobless claims fell to 881,000 versus expectations of 950,000.
- And this morning the Labor Department announced that 1.37 million new jobs were created last month. All demographics benefited. The unemployment rate fell from 10.2% to 8.4% -- a tremendous decline that far surpassed the experts' predictions of 9.8%.
It is important to note that this economic growth is happening in spite of the fact that several liberal states like California and New York are still largely shut down. This growth is happening in the rest of America.

Titus, Trump And The Triumph Of Israel
As you know, I do a lot of work to promote the U.S./Israel alliance, and in the process I have met a lot of outstanding champions for Israel. One of them is my friend Josh Reinstein. Josh is the director of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, and he has been involved in building new relationships between Christians and Jews in the 21st Century.
Josh has also just written a great new book called, Titus, Trump and the Triumph of Israel. The book is about the ongoing assault on Judeo-Christian values and the importance of men and women of faith coming together to combat this crisis.
We face a hostile enemy and an indifferent world that has lost its faith and moral compass. We must stand together and be equipped with the necessary information in order to protect our treasured biblical values.
Josh brilliantly dissects the critical issues confronting us and also gives concrete solutions for how we can work together through faith-based diplomacy in order to build a brighter future.
