White House Aides Admit That Uninformed Trump Gets His Information From Fox News

White House aides admitted that the President Of The United States uses Fox News as his primary source of information, not the intelligence community.

The New York Times reported, “Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News, which aides describe as the president’s primary source of information gathering. But Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets. Now Mr. Kelly has thinned out his package of printouts so much that Mr. Trump plaintively asked a friend recently where The Daily Caller and Breitbart were.”

Trump doesn’t use the information that his own government collects, but would rather trust a cable news channel that is infamous for its inaccurate reporting. Donald Trump is making policy decisions that impact the lives of millions of Americans based on what he sees on programs like Hannity and Fox and Friends. When Trump decided to try to ban Muslims, take away health care from tens of millions, and when he ends DACA, the guiding information source behind all of these decisions is what the nation’s first low information voter president sees on Fox News.

It is not a coincidence that with Trump reliant on Fox, the network has seen a ratings decline. The ideology being broadcast by Fox News has fallen out of favor with roughly two-thirds of the country. By allowing himself to be guided by Fox News, Trump is running his presidency straight into the ground.
