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.
December 3 – “The philanthropic and kindhearted spirit of the American people is uniquely woven into the fabric of our Nation,” the president said in a statement for Giving Tuesday. “Each day, we hear of remarkable stories of citizens rising to the occasion and assisting a neighbor in need. From helping communities rebuild following disasters to donating time and resources to organizations that help those with special needs, the people of our great country never fail to lift up those who need a helping hand.”
December 4 – “As you know, Secretary Stoltenberg said that we were responsible, I was responsible, for getting over $130 billion extra from other countries that we protect, that weren’t paying,” President Trump told reporters before heading for London for a NATO meeting. “They were delinquent. So we’ll be talking about that. We’ll be talking about a lot of things.”
December 5 – On his return from the London NATO meeting, the president hosted a lunch for the other representatives of the U.N. Security Council. “Today, our nations face a range of shared security threats, including terrorism, drug trafficking, illegal migration, cyberattack, and the spread of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons,” Trump explained.
December 6 – “On National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, we solemnly remember the tragic events of that morning and honor those who perished in defense of our Nation that day and in the ensuing 4 years of war,” Donald Trump said in his proclamation, released the day prior to the Remembrance ceremonies at Pearl Harbor. “While nearly eight decades have passed since the last sounds of battle rang out over Pearl Harbor, we will never forget the immeasurable sacrifices these courageous men and women made so that we may live today in peace and prosperity. We continue to be inspired by the proud legacy left by the brave patriots of the Greatest Generation who served in every capacity during World War II, from keeping factories operating on the home front to fighting on the battlefields in Europe, North Africa, and the South Pacific.”
December 7 – “After more than three years of being held prisoner in Iran, Xiyue Wang is returning to the United States,” President Trump said in a statement. “A Princeton University graduate student, Mr. Wang had been held under the pretense of espionage since August 2016. We thank our Swiss partners for their assistance in negotiating Mr. Wang’s release with Iran. The highest priority of the United States is the safety and well-being of its citizens. Freeing Americans held captive is of vital importance to my Administration, and we will continue to work hard to bring home all our citizens wrongfully held captive overseas.”
