So is Fox News now saying Trump DIDN'T make a Fourth Of July speech?

Because we all heard him say SOMETHING, SOMETIME, SOMEWHERE,
that sure as heck sounded like a "speech", and referenced the 4th, and looked like he was at Rushmore, and in which he said EXACTLY what the MSM say he said.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Fox News and the Wall Street Journal ask only that you believe what they say, not what you heard with your lying ears.

They're relying on their clientele not to verify anything.

Trump lied; 133,677 Americans died. No end in sight. He's surrendered to COVID-19. Open up the schools, he says. Many more children will be hospitalized. Some will die. Parents and grandparents will die en mass as well. All will die alone on a ventilator with no family around. WINNING!

During the initial Corona virus White House press conferences, I was shocked to hear Trump speak mostly about the rising stock market and "greatest economy". I knew we were in trouble by the looks on the faces of others in the room. Trump may get covid19 and die from it himself...
