President Trump at UN: " All Nations of the World Should Resist Socialism"

Why is the media desperately trying to divert attention from the content of President Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly by reporting on some laughter during it, and making that the story? It’s not hard to see why because the content is both revolutionary and devastating. And it goes against everything that the left holds dear.

President Trump came to the UNGA and was willing to call out not only Venezuela’s narcoterrorist regime, but socialism itself.

“Currently, we are witnessing a human tragedy as an example in Venezuela. More than 2 million people have fled the anguish inflicted by the socialist Maduro regime and its Cuban sponsors. Not long ago, Venezuela was one of the richest countries on earth. Today, socialism has bankrupted the oil-rich nation and driven its people into abject poverty. Virtually everywhere, socialism or communism has been tried. It has produced suffering, corruption, and decay. Socialism’s thirst for power leads to expansion, incursion, and oppression. All nations of the world should resist socialism and the misery that it brings to everyone. In that spirit, we ask the nations gathered here to join us in calling for the restoration of democracy in Venezuela. Today, we are announcing additional sanctions against the repressive regime, targeting Maduro’s inner circle and close advisers.”

These are nearly Reaganesque lines. And they’re a vital challenge to the media’s pitch for socialism.
