Trump's Awesome Response To Newsweek's Fake News About Where He Was On Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving day, Newsweek published a news story about how President Trump was spending his Thanksgiving.

The writer remarked that he was playing on Twitter and golfing among other things. She later had to eat her words after learning what President Trump was really doing on Thanksgiving. He made a secret 13-hour flight to Afghanistan to visit the troops and help serve a Thanksgiving meal.

According to Breitbart,

President Donald Trump mocked Newsweek after they reported Thursday he spent Thanksgiving golfing and tweeting. In fact, the president was secretly traveling to Afghanistan to visit deployed American troops.

The Newsweek story, first published at 10:16 a.m., was later updated to reflect the president’s visit.

“This story has been substantially updated and edited at 6:17 pm EST to reflect the president’s surprise trip to Afghanistan,” read an editors note after Trump Jr. mocked the news outlet.

The Washington Post sold Newsweek in 2010 for a dollar and changed hands several times before ending its print magazine in 2012. In 2018, Newsweek split from IBT Media into a standalone company.

A similar situation happened when President Trump visited the troops in Iraq during Christmas in 2018. NBC News reported Trump was the first president since 2002 not to visit the troops at Christmastime, while he was secretly traveling to Iraq, prompting widespread ridicule from Trump staff and his supporters.

After catching wind of the fake news story, Trump tweeted, "I thought Newsweek was out of business?"

Jessica Kwong was the writer of the phony story. She tried to make it seem as though it were just a simple mistake. It was a dishonest mistake though. She knows that she didn't find out the facts before writing it because if she did, she wouldn't have written what she did.

Kwong had tweeted,

"Trump headed to Afghanistan to surprise U.S. troops on Thanksgiving. Deleting this tweet because it was written before knowing about the president’s surprise visit to Afghanistan-an honest mistake. Story has already been updated, as shown in the screenshot."
