(Slay News) – Former President Donald Trump broke his silence on President Joe Biden’s recently announced Department of Homeland Security disinformation board. Trump said:
“I think that it’s not even believable that we’re talking about this subject, if you want to know the truth. Now they’re saying, ‘Oh, no, it’s just a recommendation.’ That’s where it all began. I guess that’s what they used to say in Russia.
“That’s what they said in the Soviet Union, right? We’re just going to do a little bit – no, we can’t do that, we can’t do that. That’s a horrible thing. Imagine the media uproar if Donald Trump decided to administer a ministry of truth?”
Trump was asked about Vice President Mike Pence’s chances if Pence ran for president in 2024. Trump said:
“If Mike got in, I think it’d be a hard one for him.
“I think it would be a hard one. I understand where the base is. I love the base.
“The base loves me. I think it’d be hard, but Mike was a good guy.
“I thought he was a very good vice president. He was my friend.”
Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., is introducing a bill to shut Biden’s new Board down.
Lauren said: “This kind of stuff is terrifying. We in Congress have the power of the purse. It is our duty to shut down this department immediately.
“I’m calling on leadership in the Republican Party, Leader McCarthy, Whip Scalise and others, to join me in calling for this department to be shut down and defunded.
“No tax dollars should go to where Biden can use the power of the federal government to silence truthful stories like Big Tech did with the Hunter Biden story.
“This really is a department of propaganda.
“To say that the federal department has a say in what’s right and what’s wrong.
“What’s truth and what is not.
“This is a very dangerous place that we’ve come to.”
“Democrats took that book not as a warning, but as a guide,” she said of George Orwell’s “1984.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended the Disinformation Governance Board making the claim that Biden was just continuing a policy from former President Donald Trump’s administration.
“We know there has been a range of disinformation out there about a range of topics, I mean, including COVID for example, and also elections and eligibility,” Psaki said.
Former Dem Rep Tulsi Gabbard said Obama was behind the entire thing.
“Biden is just a front man,” Gabbard said on Twitter Sunday. “Obama, April 21: social media censors ‘don’t go far enough,’ so the government needs to step in to do the job. Six days later, Homeland Security rolls out the ‘Ministry of Truth’ (aka Disinformation Governance Board).”
Biden blames Trump for soaring inflation, and Putin. Of course. Because he can. Media blur the admin’s debt magnet giveaways, stimulus, toss in student loans, the midterms stink bait.
