Trump’s response to questions concerning his allegation of Middle Eastern people in migrant caravan. “There is no proof of anything.”

President Donald Trump on Tuesday defended his unsubstantiated assertion that “unknown Middle Easterners” are traveling in a migrant caravan traveling north to the United States from Central America, but admitted “there’s no proof of anything.”

“They could very well be,” Trump reiterated during a bill signing in the Oval Office, referring to Middle Eastern individuals embedded in the caravan. “I have very good information.”

However, pressed for the proof of Middle Eastern individuals in the caravan by CNN’s Jim Acosta, Trump said “there’s no proof of anything.”

“There’s no proof of anything but they could very well be,” Trump said.

So not only is Trump asserting, without evidence, that there are Middle Eastern people mixed in with a caravan of poor people walking thousands of miles to reach the American border, but that if there are Middle Eastern people in this caravan that they are definitely terrorists. 

Trump, of course, is completely wrong that there is “no proof of anything.”

For instance, there is overwhelming proof that the Russians interfered in our 2016 presidential election,  overwhelming proof that Putin now believes that he can act with impunity without fear of reprisals from the president of the United States, and overwhelming proof that Trump lies virtually every single day about all of this.

These are such transparent scare tactics that I am almost surprised that anybody is falling for them, but then I see the intelligence level of the average Trump supporter and I am surprised no longer.

    Nationalism has a fascist pedigree Trump has repeatedly invited his supporters to beat up protesters at his rallies. Now a phalanx is forming around the demagogue. Prominent Republicans are excusing or defending Trump’s remarks. Here’s what they’re saying:
    1. No comment.
    2. It’s not news.
    3. Nobody got hurt this time.
    4. It’s fun.
    5. It’s politically incorrect.
    6. It’s strong.

    “Well, the prince is running things over there more so at this stage. He’s running things and so if anybody were going to be, it would be him.”
    Trump said he was convinced King Salman had no advance knowledge of the incident, according to the Journal.”
    The president said he asked the prince “‘Where did it start?’ And he said it started at lower levels.”
    Asked if he believed the denials, Trump told the newspaper: “I want to believe them. I really want to believe them,”

    The recordings of al this are horrifying. He is just incoherent. He’s the president and he can’t express a coherent thought about any of this, plus his assertions about middle eastern terrorists in the caravan are just ludicrous.
