FACT CHECK: President Trump Has Acknowledged the Historical Slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire

The fake news is claiming that Trump is denying the Armenian genocide.

The Trump administration is being widely accused by the fake news of refusing to acknowledge the Armenian genocide at the behest of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In actuality, President Trump has acknowledged the historical slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire. He has not changed his position based on a resolution that was passed by the Senate acknowledging the Armenian genocide last week.

“The position of the Administration has not changed,” said White House spokesperson Morgan Ortagus in a statement to the Hill. “Our views are reflected in the President’s definitive statement on the issue from last April.”

Trump said during Armenian Remembrance Day on April 24 that 1.5 million Armenians were “deported, massacred or marched to their deaths” starting in 1915 by the Ottoman Empire. He did not refer to the incident as a genocide, but never denied that the slaughter in fact occurred.

The resolution that acknowledges the Armenian genocide was passed in bipartisan fashion last week in the Senate, with Republican and Democratic Senators applauding the effort to recognize the gruesome historical event that the Turks want to minimize. The resolution had previously passed the House in October.

“I’m thankful that this resolution has passed at a time in which there are still survivors of the genocide who will be able to see that the Senate acknowledges what they went through,” Sen. Bob Melendez (D-NJ) said on the Senate floor.

“This is the third week in a row we have come to the Senate floor seeking to pass this resolution, and I’m grateful that today we have succeeded,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said as the resolution was passed. “This is a moment of truth that was far too long coming.”

The resolution reads in part as follows:

That it is the sense of the Senate that it is the policy of the United States—

(1) to commemorate the Armenian Genocide through official recognition and remembrance;

(2) to reject efforts to enlist, engage, or otherwise associate the United States Government with denial of the Armenian Genocide or any other genocide; and

(3) to encourage education and public understanding of the facts of the Armenian Genocide, including the role of the United States in humanitarian relief efforts, and the relevance of the Armenian Genocide to modern-day crimes against humanity.

Erdogan is livid about the passage of the resolution, and vows to punish the U.S. for acknowledging his country’s role in some of the most ghastly atrocities in history.

“We should oppose [the US] by reciprocating such decisions in parliament. And that is what we will do,” Erdogan said while appearing on the A Haber news channel.

“Can we speak about America without mentioning [Native Americans]? It is a shameful moment in US history,” he added.

President Trump is in a tough position with Turkey being a key strategic ally and a NATO partner. Still, reports from the fake news media that Trump is denying the Armenian genocide are inaccurate, as the President has in fact acknowledged the mass slaughter of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire.

OWNED: ‘The Federalist’ Employees Slam Never Trump Hack David Frum for Insinuation of Conservative Gender Bias

Frum is a disingenuous virtue signaler.

Published

Disgraced former Bush speechwriter David Frum, who abandoned the GOP to become a Never Trumper and Democrat operative, made a complete idiot of himself on social media on Thursday.

Frum posted a bizarre conspiracy theory, naming people such as left-wing journalists Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, podcast host Joe Rogan, the writers at The Federalist, and Donald Trump Jr. as part of a new milieu centered around a mutual disdain for U.S. power, or something.

“Wanted: smart, non-polemical assessment of emergence of Tucker Carlson, Joe Rogan, Glenn Greenwald, Donald Trump Jr., Matt Taibbi, the Federalist group of writers etc. as a coherent and cohesive faction in American politics. They share more than just the same dislikes,” Frum wrote in a tweet.

He started a Twitter thread to justify selling out his party and his country while hurling accusations at various political enemies who he arbitrarily grouped together.

“Trump put racism, misogyny, cruelty, corruption, authoritarianism on a giant billboard and forced us all to look. Could we accept? Those who said No found themselves in tandem with others who said No,” Frum wrote.

“Trump pushed Never Trump Republicans into partnership with moderate Democrats – and prodded even formerly conservative minded people – to see power in ideas like Me Too and Black Lives Matter,” he added.

“And that’s what we’re seeing in this fusion of the pro-Trump right with factions of the far left. Both are mistrustful of US power as a force for good. Both recoil from “centrism.” And both have heard quite enough from women and minorities, thank you very much,” Frum concluded.

While Frum’s rant is obviously meritless drivel, he really stepped into it when he made a drive-by comment to virtue signal to his left-wing, anti-male “Resistance” followers.

Writers for The Federalist, the conservative media outlet that employs many female reporters, and other like-minded conservatives have spent the entire day dunking on Frum for his idiotic and humiliating comment.

Big League Politics has been hammering Frum for years as he has emerged as perhaps the most dishonest charlatan among the “Never Trump” defectors:

Former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum, a face of the NeverTrump “Republican” establishment, lost the Munk debate in Toronto to Steve Bannon, populist-nationalist CEO of the President Trump 2016 campaign and original Trump White House chief strategist.

Frum is one of the few media-friendly so-called conservatives still clinging to newsprint in the age of Trump by throwing spitballs at the wildly successful Commander in Chief. (He also wrote a book on W. Bush entitled “The Right Man,” lest we forget).

Bannon fans were looking forward to the confrontation…

Perhaps during term two, President Donald Trump could have Frum arrested for his role in devising and selling the public on the Iraq War.
