CNN mocked President Trump over his participation at the World Economic Forum in Davos in a rather confusing article. On one hand, they were forced to respond to the reality that America is back, and that after eight long years of watching Barack Obama apologize for America, we now have an unapologetic leader is oozing with pride for America. But true to their anti-President Trump mission, the embarrassing network mocked Trump by claiming he is “milking it” when he shows pride for our great nation, and is “rubbing it in that he’s the world’s most powerful man.”
Here is a portion of CNN’s article on Trump’s meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos:
The populist “America First” protectionist who won the White House by scorching the globalized worldview of liberal elites who party at Davos every winter suddenly finds himself the star of their show — and he is milking it.
As the champion of the “forgotten man,” some might wonder why he showed up to pal around with the hated global elite. But it’s not difficult to believe Trump may enjoy rubbing it in that he’s the world’s most powerful man.
Later, the leader of the global populist movement held court around a table packed with some of Europe’s most powerful CEOs, as they showered him with gratitude for the corporate tax cut and deregulation policies.
Outside the US, Trump’s presidency is widely seen as a departure from US norms, the values that underpin Western liberalism, and as a repudiation of America’s support for an open, pluralistic and free trading international system.
“He is going for show and not for substance. In terms of global policy, he has nothing to say to the people of Davos,” said Nicholas Dungan, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council who teaches at Sciences Po, a prestigious French research university.
“If he is the ‘stable genius’ of his own description, he will realize at the World Economic Forum that the rest of the planet is moving quite swiftly to fill the void of US leadership in the global system which the US itself created.”
Really CNN? Because that’s not what this impressive group of top European business leaders had to say. Watch this impressive list of leaders praise Donald Trump for his leadership and for the stunning success of his pro-business tax reform and tax cuts that have created a business-friendly environment, thereby creating more American jobs for the “forgotten man” Trump promised to help.
