Witness testimony reveals real reason Ukraine aid held
Democrats trying to twist the narrative are going to have to deal with some cold hard truth after newly released transcripts from the deposition of Mark Sandy, an official at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), reveals that the reason for withholding Ukraine aid had nothing to do with the Bidens, bribery, or quid pro quo.
The testimony revealed that the OMB was instructed to withhold aid to Ukraine because President Donald Trump had concerns “about other countries not contributing more to Ukraine.”
Liberal media tries to spin narrative on Ukraine timing
CNN alleged in a report yesterday that the Ukraine aid was held by the OMB on the same day as Trump’s call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25.
After CNN’s report, many other liberal media outlets issued similar headlines and parroted the story.
However, Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said this was false, writing on Twitter: “This is not true. There were multiple actions before July 25th. It’s amazing how much deliberate misleading many in the media are enthusiastically engaging in to dumb down the public. Why? Just shoot straight and let the American public think for themselves with all of the facts!”
Even a Washington Post report on September 23 disputed this.
“Officials at the Office of Management and Budget relayed Trump’s order to the State Department and the Pentagon during an interagency meeting in mid-July, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations,” The Washington Post reported September 23.
“They explained that the president had ‘concerns’ and wanted to analyze whether the money needed to be spent.”
Trump Vows to Fight Thanksgiving Name Change
President Donald Trump is vowing to fight efforts from the “radical left” against changing the name of Thanksgiving.
Trump: “We’re not changing” name of Thanksgiving
President Trump is pledging to fight against the revisionist left that wants to rewrite history in yet another area of American life.
“As we gather together for Thanksgiving, you know, some people want to change the name Thanksgiving,” Trump began Tuesday night at a rally held in Sunrise, Florida.
“They don’t want to use the term Thanksgiving. And that was true also with Christmas. But now everybody’s using Christmas again. Remember this?”
“But now we’re going to have to do a little work on Thanksgiving,” Trump continued. “People have different ideas. Why it shouldn’t be called Thanksgiving. But everybody in this room, I know, loves the name Thanksgiving. And we’re not changing.”
