Trump’s accomplishments not acknowledged by media

To the editor:

Since Donald Trump became president, he has not received a lot of benefits from the liberal media. It has been a constant barrage of negative comments by almost every TV news anchor from Norah O’Donnell, Lester Holt and even people like Chuck Todd and even George Stephanopoulos.

Why is it that he has taken it on the chin day after day and night after night by these people who are supposed to represent both sides of politics on a television station? Even newspapers like the New York Times and other newspapers have not given him even the right time of the day.

Last night’s speech, President Trump tried to inform those who listened of his accomplishments, of which there were many from the economy, the stock market rising and rising, real GDP (the Gross Domestic Product) has grown, medium income has risen, too. And he gave a big tax benefit for most people.

He increased spending for the Armed Forces and even increased benefits in many ways to veterans, in pay, housing and family aid. He is quoted that he will increase money for Social Security. He eliminated many people from welfare, and even wages have increased for blue-collar workers and increased more manufacturing jobs in America.

He stopped the excessive immigration for most people from crossing our southern border, and is now completing building the wall to restrict people from entering illegally.

Listening to his speech, I felt he tried to bring out what he was trying to do for the country, even though he has been criticized from the media, to newspaper coverage, and not only the TV anchors, but those that were a part of the TV team anchors from NBC, CBS, ABC, etc.

After his speech, I listened to the TV anchors and I did not hear ONE good comment that he did that was to them exceptional after spending over an hour telling what he did for the country. I felt that even if he raised a person from the dead, these people would say that the person was never dead to begin with.

Pelosi said that she prays for him every day. Are those just words, or does she really pray for President Trump? By ripping up his speech he gave last night gave me the impression that she is a hypocrite. Was this a real appearance of a false expression? I felt she was not the only hypocrite in the chamber.
