Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report – 

White House tells MHProNews what its reading in the mainstream media, different from what many televised reports project.



While media on the left and right are lashing out a what the president said (reposting that video below, because as what is being alleged by anti-Trump media is not what the president said), the White House is pointing out toe MHProNews those media outlets that are reporting economic and other advances.


The Washington Times editorial board writes there are “encouraging signs” that the Trump administration’s regulatory rollback is helping put the economy back on track, and that passing the RAISE Act could provide even more economic relief to American families and workers.


In Connecticut’s Hartford Courant, Pitney Bowes’ President and CEO Marc Lautenbach makes the case for why American businesses of all sizes need tax reform, saying a “failure to pass tax reform this year could disrupt” the economy’s current “positive momentum.”


In The Hill, economist Stephen Moore touts the economic progress that black Americans have made under the Trump administration so far, writing that the President is “delivering positive results” in “creating jobs, higher incomes and trying to give a better education to every disadvantaged child in America,” calling it “a pretty darn good civil rights record.”


In U.S. News and World Report, the Manhattan Institute’s Diana Furchtgott-Roth writes that the President is standing up to China by helping American companies fight intellectual property theft. She writes, “It’s about time that China was taken to task, not just for intellectual property violations, but for making it difficult for American companies to operate within China.”


The actual video of what the president said, that sparked such a firestorm, is below.

If you watch it, ask yourself.  Where would the logic be for the president to support any racist group, when it is such a tiny minority of the country?

Where in this video does he say a single thing that is pro-racist?

If We listened to the entire roughly 23 minutes. If you don’t hear anything racist, we didn’t either.  The ‘dog-whistle’ claims by his opponents that tried to keep him out of office don’t make sense, and are pure spin. The anti-Trump media appear to be hoping that millions will not look at the facts, but will only listen to the media commentary.

Take the time to listen objectively exactly what he said, word for word. “We Provide, You Decide.” ©
