MSNBC Admits Media Covers Trump Tweets Instead Of His Actual Policy Victories

MSNBC host Ali Velshi said Friday that the media will not talk about President Trump’s recent policy successes on North Korea “because there’s a tweet.”

Daily Beast columnist Gordon Chang appeared as a guest on “MSNBC Live,” declaring that “Trump had a very good day yesterday with the sanctions.”

“He got the Chinese, for instance, to order banks not to do business with North Korea. This is a critical story, and yet we don’t talk about it as much because of this tweet,” Chang continued.

Velshi agreed.
