America’s president fights back! And that’s why the majority of the country LOVE the man.
President Trump’s team filed a lawsuit against the New York Times for libel. Talk about a shot over the bough for the Leftist media.
Basically they are saying they can disprove the allegation of Russian collusion, in New York. In a case like this, it is the plaintiffs burden to prove it is false, and recklessly stated. Either they’ve got the goods, or they’ve got chutzpah cc @PolitiBunny https://t.co/eykEaCGHHQ

And when he wins, you can bet other Leftist media putzes will understand the significance. Because Leftists understand issues much clearer when their money is at play.
Trump warned them. In one interview he said:
DONALD TRUMP: I’ll tell you what, I think the media is among the most dishonest groups of people I’ve ever met. They’re terrible. The New York Times, which is losing a fortune, which is a failing newspaper, which probably won’t be around that much longer, but probably somebody will buy it as a trophy, keep it going for a little longer. But I think The New York Times is one of the most dishonest media outlets I’ve ever seen in my life. The worst, the worst. The absolute worst. They have an agenda that you wouldn’t believe. And they’re run by incompetent people. They are totally incompetently run.
Washington Post, I have to tell you, I have respect for Jeff Bezos, but he bought The Washington Post to have political influence and I got to tell you, we have a different country than we used to have. We have a different — He owns Amazon. He wants political influence so that Amazon will benefit from it. That’s not right. And believe me, if I become president, oh, do they have problems. They’re going to have such problems.
But Trump doesn’t just address the problem, he offers solutions!
Thus, Trump proposed using the courts to force the truth.
Trump continued: And one of the things I’m going to do, and this is only going to make it tougher for me, and I’ve never said this before, but one of the things I’m going to do if I win — and I hope I do and we’re certainly leading — is I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.
We’re going to open up those libel laws. So that when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they’re totally protected. You see, with me, they’re not protected because I’m not like other people but I’m not taking money. I’m not taking their money. So we’re going to open up those libel laws folks and we’re going to have people sue you like you never got sued before. We have many things to do. We have many, many things to do.
And it’s not just the media whom Trump targets. Not long ago he threatened to sue Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.
But Trump won’t be the only one suing, because he knows the power of the lawsuit.
In his recent targeting of sanctuary cities, the president said that he will ask Congress to allow citizens to sue legislators who allow criminals back on the street. If that person commits another crime, then citizens will be able to bankrupt the scumbag politicians, who for now are immune.
Imagine what that would do for the family of Kate Steinle. Because when this occurs, power goes back into the hands of the people.
I hope President Trump follows through and sues Pelosi and Schiff. This would send shockwaves through the Left. To see top Democrats dragged into court, spending a fortune to fight lawsuits. And not frivolous lawsuits, but meaningful ones.
