Trump just called Secretary Pompeo and Mnuchin big liars in order to make himself look better (VIDEO)
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Tuesday that Trump would meet with Iran without preconditions. They used those words exactly.
Not only that but Mnuchin kind of made things more interesting when he said: "Pompeo, myself and the president are completely aligned on a maximum pressure campaign. I think we've done more sanctions on Iran than anybody. And it's absolutely working. Now the president has made clear he's happy to take a meeting with no preconditions."
Yet on Sunday, President Trump lashed out at the media for reporting on precisely what was said in that White House press meeting by the two cabinet officials.
Here's Trump trying to spin this:
"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, “No Conditions.” That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)."
Folks, you just can't make this stuff up. Once you watch the video, you just have to be thinking: Are they calling the president and telling him what they said? Or are they calling him to apologize?
This administration is the biggest joke. We know this is reported as true everyday but just watch this, read the president's statement, and then think to yourself: what the hell is going on?
One scenario: Trump could be purposely lying due to the recent attack on Saudi's oil facilities, and pretending they didn't say this to the media.
Trump alluded to military action early Sunday evening:
"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!"
Right now there is a blame game going on and Iran is being labeled as possibly being behind the attacks, currently for which there is no proof.
What's more: Trump may rely on Saudi's own assessment as a precursor to military retaliation, which is not a good thing.
