During a speech at the White House on Independence Day, the Commander in Chief issued a stern message to the members of the media who “falsely label their opponents as racists who condemn patriotic citizens– who offer a clear and truthful defense of American unity.”

The president’s message comes as some pundits in the media have repeated called the president and his supporters racist for differing political view points. It also comes among the recent statue defacing and toppling, the media attacking the President’s Mount Rushmore speech, and amid some who have criticized the Fourth of July for what it stands for.

“We want a clear and faithful defense of American history,” the president explained. “And we want unity. When you level these false charges, you not only slander me, you not only slander the American people, but you slander generations of heroes who gave their lives for America.”

“You slander people much braver and more principled than you; you’re slandering the young men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima and those who perished fighting for freedom in the Civil War. You slander them,” he told the media. “You are dishonoring their great legacy and their memory by insisting that they fought for racism and they fought for oppression.”

The president informed the media that they “did not fight for those things”, clarifying that they they fought for “the exact opposite”, adding: “We will not let the legacy of these heroes be tarnished by you.”

“The more you lie, the more you slander, the more you try to demean and divide, the more we will work hard to tell the truth, and we will win,” the Commander in Chief declared. “The more you lie and demean and collude, the more credibility you lose. We want to bring the country together and a free and open media will make this task a very easy one. Our country will be united.” Continued Below

The Commander in Chief listed off what he believes all Americans want:

He said: “We want a strong military, great education, housing, low taxes, law and order, we want safety, … equal justice, … religious liberty, we want faith and family and living in great communities and happy communities and safe communities, and we want great jobs, and we want to be respected by the rest of the world, not taken advantage of by the rest of the world, which has gone on for decade after decade.”

“We should all want the same thing. How can it be any different than those things?” Trump asked. “The more bitter you become, the more we will appeal to love and patriotism. And the more we will rise above your hate to build a better future for every child in our great country.” Video Below
