Trump calls out liberal press: ‘Rent a helicopter’ and check out border, ‘except you don’t want to know the truth’

President Donald Trump accused the mainstream media of refusing to acknowledge the truth while continuing to provide biased coverage of his administration.

The president spoke to reporters outside of the White House on his way to inspect the US southern border on Thursday, slamming the liberal media of being “in coordination with the opposition party.”

 

“Look, look, you can all play cute,” Trump said.

“And I’d say 80 percent of you are possibly in coordination with the opposition party. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous,” he added.

“All you have to do is look at the borders. Rent a helicopter, except you don’t want to know the truth,” he said before adding another “story” for the reporters.

“And by the way, here’s a story, there’s another major caravan forming,” he said, referring to reports that a new caravan of migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are headed to the United States next week.

The liberal media doesn’t seem to be calling Mexico out for the country’s strong stand against the expected influx as they have consistently decried Trump’s efforts to protect Americans.

“The doors to Mexico are open to anyone who wants to enter in an orderly fashion,” Mexico’s Interior Ministry spokesman Hector Gandini told Reuters. “But whoever wants to come in illegally will be deported.”

U.S. authorities have been attempting to discourage the new group, which some estimate could be double the size of the October 2018 caravan, as participants plan to leave Honduras from the city of San Pedro Sula on January 15.

Heide Fulton, the U.S chargé d’affaires to Honduras, issued a warning on Twitter on Wednesday.

“The risks of illegal immigration are serious. Don’t waste your time and money on a trip destined to fail. The road is long and very dangerous. Thousands of Hondurans who participated in the caravan came back sorry,” Fulton said in the video message.

Meanwhile, as Trump heads to visit the border between the U.S. and Mexico, his favorite White House reporter Jim Acosta was filing his report from McAllen, Texas where he saw no “signs of imminent danger.”

Twitter users applauded the president’s stand and agreed with his calling out of the media.
