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.

Democrats’ Expert on Misinformation is CNN Hack Soledad O’Brien Who Has Pushed Fake News Incessantly for Years

The Democrats are shamelessly Orwellian.

CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien appeared before Congress on Wednesday as the Democrats’ expert on combating “misinformation.”

During the hearing, she called for her competitors to be censored and for alternative perspectives from the globalist-mandated consensus to be crushed.

“When news organizations make decisions based on ratings rather than responsible reporting, disinformation flourishes in dangerous ways,” O’Brien said while appearing before Congress.

“Cover the fact that lies and propaganda are being disseminated, but do not book people to lie on your show, because it elevates them and presents a lie as another side. Stop posing every story as having two sides, some stories, in fact, have many many sides, and are more complicated. And also, lies don’t have a side,’ she added, describing her vision for how news should be covered.

However, if O’Brien’s advice were taken by newsrooms, she would never be allowed on anymore due to her record of spreading reckless conspiracy theories about Trump being a Russian asset and other nonsense.

News aggregator @amuse posted some of O’Brien’s greatest hits on the fake news leader over the past few years:

Big League Politics has reported on other times in which O’Brien humiliated herself by posting falsehoods:

As usual, members of our esteemed media were caught lying on Wednesday, this time about the motivations for President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Iraq to visit troops.

Much ado was made when Trump did not visit Iraq on Christmas Day. NBC said that he was the first president not to visit the troops as Christmastime, only to correct themselves after Trump left for Iraq late Tuesday night. This led leftists conclude that the media had “shamed” Trump into visiting our fine soldiers.

“Shaming him seems to work,” CNN’s Soledad O’Brien said in reply to a Tweet by Brit Hume.

Hume had noted that by the time left-wing actress had blasted Trump for not visiting the troops, he had already visited them. Hume blasted O’Brien for her apparent lack of understanding of the concept of time.

“Yes Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this Tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

… What was wrong was the assumption that Trump had to be “shamed” to visiting the war zone. Embarrassingly, these leftists were proved wrong by leftist POLITICO.

“According to a White House official, the Trump administration had been planning the trip for more than six weeks,” said a Wednesday POLITICO piece.

Of course, the piece chided Trump for not being able to keep his trip a secret, citing two of Trump’s remarks about a potential trip to a war zone. 

The Democrats are shameless in pushing their Orwellian agenda. They are at war with objective reality and will stoop to unfathomable depths to achieve absolute power.
