May God show mercy on the heart and soul of America.

From CNN Website:Trump told enlisted service-members at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida that attacks were happening "all over Europe" and that "it's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported."
"And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that," Trump added.
Later, the White House distributed a list of the attacks Trump was citing, saying "most did not receive adequate attention."
"Below is a list of 78 major terrorist attacks targeting the West that were executed or inspired by ISIS since September 2014, soon after the terror group declared its caliphate. Most of these attacks did not receive adequate attention from Western media sources," a White House official said on background, when distributing the list.
Quoted and attributed under Fair Use.

We now have a mad man living in a fantasy world trying to invoke his worlds twisted non existent reality on the Real World and its billions of inhabitants. Beseech whatever Deity you worship for mercy and help in this time of crisis.

Again from CNN.com posted under Fair Use Doctrine

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump continues to decry a record-high murder rate that simply doesn't exist.
The President said Tuesday that the US murder rate "is the highest it's been in 47 years."
"I'd say that in a speech and everybody was surprised because the press doesn't like to tell it like it is," Trump said during a meeting with US sheriffs at the White House. "It wasn't to their advantage to say that. The murder rate is the highest it's been in I guess 45-47 years."
But the reason there's no reporting on a 45- or 47-year high murder rate is because the US murder rate isn't even close to such record highs.
Trump repeatedly cited this faulty figure during his presidential campaign as he sought to paint the US as besieged by crime unseen in decades presenting his leadership as necessary to clean up the country.
The reality is that the US murder rate in 2015, the latest full year available, was lower than it was 45 years prior.
The US did experience its highest one-year increase in the murder rate in half a century between 2014 and 2015.
But still, the murder rate in 2015 was just 4.9 per 100,000 people. That figure is dwarfed by crime figures in the 1990s when the murder rate hovered between 8 and 10 murders per 100,000 people.
Trump repeatedly misstated the figure during the campaign and has continued to make the erroneous claim about the murder rate despite numerous fact checks.

Isn't blatant lying and insanity grounds for impeachment?

Talk about meglomaniacial abuse of power, using the White House Twitter account, @POTUS to blast a Department Store Chain Nordstroms because they decided to dump his daughters line of clothing and accessories because it wasn't selling?

Just goes to show what I have maintained since it started: TWITTER is for TWITS & TWATS
