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.” So, each week, our editorial staff combs through the noise to bring you the highlights of what the president did and said.
October 11 – President Trump met with Vice Premier Liu He of China. In announcing a phase-one trade deal with the People’s Republic, Mr. Trump said: “But we’ve come to a deal on intellectual property, financial services. A tremendous deal for the farmers. A purchase of — from 40 to 50 billion dollars’ worth of agricultural products. To show you how big that is, that would be two and a half, three times what China had purchased at its highest point thus far.”
October 12 – In his remarks made to the press before boarding Marine One for a trip to Louisiana, the president answered questions about the “whistleblower” that sparked calls for impeachment. “The whole thing that they’re doing is a hoax to try and win an election that they’re not going to win in 2020. You look at the phone conversation I had with the President of Ukraine; it was perfect. The only thing that wasn’t perfect was the fraud that was committed on the American people in Congress when Schiff got up. And instead of reading what was said, word-for-word, exact — when Schiff got up and he lied and he defrauded the American public by making up a conversation. He made it up.”
October 14 – The president attended the Values Voter Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC. The president began his remarks by saying: “You are the warriors on the frontiers defending American freedom. We meet tonight at a crucial moment in our nation’s history. Our shared values are under assault like never before. Extreme left-wing radicals, both inside and outside government, are determined to shred our Constitution and eradicate the beliefs we all cherish. Far-left socialists are trying to tear down the traditions and customs that made America the greatest nation on Earth. They reject the principles of our Founding Fathers — principles enshrined into the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that our rights come from our creator.”
October 15 – The 2019 Stanley Cup Champions, the St. Louis Blues, visited the president in the Rose Garden.
October 16 – Mr. Trump met with Italian President Mattarella before a bilateral meeting. From the Oval Office and with Mr. Mattarella in his presence, the president said: “We’re winning, in the case of the European Union, $7.5 billion. And Italy has a percentage of that to pay. And, in the — in other cases, we’ve won. And we have a lot of money coming into the United States for the first time ever. Tremendous amounts of money in many different forms, including tariffs.”
October 17 – It was announced that the United States and Turkey agreed to a ceasefire in northeast Syria. The agreement stipulated that religious and ethnic minorities will be safeguarded. Both the US and Turkey plan to cooperate to detain ISIS fighters.
