After media outlets published stories trumpeting the 100,000 figure earlier this week, based on the word of UN refugee specialist Manfred Nowak, the expert was forced to correct his initial statement on Tuesday. As it turns out, the figure Nowak cited to reporters dates back to 2015, meaning the dramatic number of detentions he revealed occurred under the watch of President Barack Obama, rather than Donald Trump, who is often assailed by progressive critics over his border policies.

Instead of issuing corrections, however, Nowak’s clarification prompted several outlets to withdraw their stories altogether, including Reuters and AFP, who both said no replacement story would be forthcoming.

Not a supporter of Trump I do think his stay in the White House brought out the Deep State-controlled media in force and in their much-choreographed display of demonization of Trump actually brought out the corruption he was being blamed for had actually been occurring in past presidencies, but covered up by the bought and paid for media. Although Trump didn't drain the swamp his presence had a great deal in exposing it.
