The American media monopoly sets the messaging agenda for the week on Sunday morning. Last Sunday the messaging centered on Brexit and an ABC/Washington Post poll showing Trump trailing Hillary Clinton by double digits. What the media failed to reveal was, of the people polled 36% were Democrats and 24% Republicans. The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos who is involved in a very public feud with Donald Trump.
The Trump/Bezos feud began when Trump leveled the charge that Jeff Bezos owner of Amazon, is using The Washington Post paper to attack him because as President he would force the massive online retailer to pay more in taxes. Trump has threatened to go after Bezos for antitrust violations because he has a monopoly and is getting away with murder tax-wise. Bezos denied he used the Post to go after Trump, but Bob Woodward, editor of the Post revealed a "20 man army"has been assigned to dig up dirt on Trump.
Trump has been a vocal supporter of Brexit and a believer in national identity, taxing the rich and border control. After his "Trump emblazoned helicopter" landed in Scotland, Trump congratulated the British people for achieving an exit from the European Union. Trump went on to state "I think it's a great thing that's happened. It's an amazing vote, very historic." "People are angry all over the world. They're angry over borders, they're angry over people coming into the country and taking over and nobody even knows who they are." "They're angry about many, many things in the UK, the US and many other places.
The media pounced on
Trump citing tanking global markets and volatility. The Clinton campaign
released a campaign video stating "The last thing we need in volatile times is
a volatile President."
