Democrats and Their Media Allies Intentionally Misquoting Trump’s Vow to Deport Criminals Here Illegally


Maybe it’s just that the New York Times doesn’t realize their readers only read the headline. Take this one:

“What Donald Trump’s Vow to Deport Up to 3 Million Immigrants Would Mean”

But the lede reads this way:

WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump’s promise to deport two million to three million immigrants who have committed crimes suggested that he would dramatically step up removals of both people in the United States illegally and those with legal status. If carried out, the plan potentially would require raids by a vastly larger federal immigration force to hunt down these immigrants and send them out of the country.

Embolden print, mine.

While Trump may have the number wrong – Nate Silver finds it closer to 1.9 million – the headline misleads and deliberately so. Trumps’ war with the Times remains justified. But  Time’s story further discredits their own headline:

Addressing the issue in an interview broadcast Sunday on the CBS program “60 Minutes,” Mr. Trump adopted a softer tone on immigrants than he did during his campaign, when he called many of them rapists and criminals. He instead referred to them as “terrific people,” saying they would be dealt with only after the border had been secured and criminals deported.

Protestations of mayors from Democrat controlled cities like Chicago and New York are already advancing the lie that Trump plans to deport all immigrants. Their lie only protects the murderers and rapists Trump wants removed from their cities.

Here’s the Washington Posts’s headline:

After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.
