During President Donald Trump’s ongoing trip to Great Britain, he had the misfortune of observing CNN’s international coverage and was far from pleased with their deceptive and misleading coverage.
Just arrived in the United Kingdom. The only problem is that @CNN is the primary source of news available from the U.S. After watching it for a short while, I turned it off. All negative & so much Fake News, very bad for U.S. Big ratings drop. Why doesn’t owner @ATT do something?

He was so offended by the fake news giving a dishonest portrayal about U.S. affairs that he took to Twitter to urge a consumer boycott of its parent company, AT&T.

AT&T acquired the world’s leader in fake news after recently completing a merge with Time Warner. President Trump and his Justice Department opposed the merger on anti-trust grounds, concerned that the consolidation of power would harm competition and adversely affect the consumer.
The administration was ultimately overruled by the courts, and another media conglomerate has been allowed to form as a result.
“The government’s objections that the district court misunderstood and misapplied economic principles and clearly erred in rejecting the quantitative model are unpersuasive,” the three-judge panel said in their opinion in favor of establishing the communications monopoly.
Trump’s Justice Department disagreed strongly with the ruling, believing that the activist judges are failing to protect the marketplace with their decision.
“AT&T defends the court’s flawed rejection of [the government’s economic expert] testimony by attempting to elide that the court used the wrong number for consumer savings: AT&T simply swaps a different number into its brief without any explanation how the court could have reached it,” the DOJ said. “These bold attempts to rescue-by-revising the court’s opinion are starkly inconsistent with AT&T’s repeated ode to deference—and only reinforce the need for remand.”
“AT&T unsuccessfully attempts to justify the district court’s conclusion that Time Warner would not bargain with DirecTV’s interests in mind. Given the district court’s illogical conclusion that the merger will lead to no change in bargaining leverage, and its erroneous finding of no consumer harm, a remand is necessary,” the DOJ said to the court.
The failing news network CNN is now propped up by AT&T, as corporate power consolidates against President Trump and his ‘America First’ agenda.
However, the consumers do ultimately have the power as Trump notes. If enough people dump AT&T, they will ultimately get the message and pull the plug on the fledgling fake news entity that is CNN.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection
Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.
“God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.
Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.
Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.
Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
