A White House that complains about fake news every single day has endorsed Trump tweeting fake anti-Muslim propaganda videos as real news.
Here is one of the fake videos that Trump retweeted:

The White House Press Secretary who should have been appalled at her boss spreading fake information to the American people responded by saying, “Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real. His goal is to promote strong border security and strong national security.”
It doesn’t matter to the White House if the information is fake as long as it scares enough people into supporting his border wall.
The Trump administration isn’t at war with “fake news.” They are fighting against truth and facts.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders has endorsed the use of propaganda. Huckabee Sanders is Baghdad Bob, and her comments are another reason why the American people should demand that networks stop carrying the White House daily briefing. It is time to take away the television platform for Trump’s propaganda.
