Editor’s Note: Everyone’s got an opinion, but who has the facts? At LibertyNation.com, we like to say, “Truth is Making a Comeback because Facts Matter.” Each week, we cut through the noise to bring you some of the lesser-reported highlights of the president’s week.

Mr. Trump held another Great American Comeback Event at Pittsburgh International Airport in Pennsylvania.
The president also delivered a pre-recorded address to the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly. His speech was critical of China’s actions in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as that country’s conduct concerning several other issues, including pollution.
In concluding his address, Mr. Trump told the UNGA: “For decades, the same tired voices proposed the same failed solutions, pursuing global ambitions at the expense of their own people. But only when you take care of your own citizens will you find a true basis for cooperation. As President, I have rejected the failed approaches of the past, and I am proudly putting America first, just as you should be putting your countries first. That’s okay — that’s what you should be doing.”

The president delivered remarks from the East Room of the White House in honor of Bay of Pigs veterans. Later, he spoke with State Attorneys General on the subject of protecting consumers from social media abuses.
During an evening press briefing, the president was asked about the Breonna Taylor killing in Kentucky. In response, Mr. Trump quoted a statement by the state’s attorney general: “Justice is not — justice is not often easy. It does not fit the mold of public opinion and it does not conform to shifting standards. It answers only to the facts and to the law. If we simply act on emotion or outrage there is no justice. Mob justice is not justice. Justice sought by violence is not justice – it just becomes revenge.”
