President Trump’s poorly aimed Tweet early Monday morning diminished a weekend worth of public goodwill. He must, for the first time, apologize. He must apologize or lose all. This ain’t 12-dimensional chess, and this isn’t 2016, as he recognized in his speeches this past weekend. Now he needs to Be Best! He was right to tweet against NASCAR, but erred badly in naming the only black driver in the top racing circuit rather than the Suits in the NASCAR boardroom. He needs to make this right before the week is out, and could win bigly in so doing.
Here are some of President Trump’s great words from Saturday’s Salute to America:
The more you lie, the more you slander, the more you try to demean and divide, the more we will work hard to tell the truth. And we will win. (Applause.) The more you lie and demean and collude, the more credibility you lose. We want to bring the country together, and a free and open media will make this task a very easy one. Our country will be united. After all, what do we want? We want a strong military, great education, housing, low taxes, law and order. We want safety, we want equal justice, we want religious liberty, we want faith and family, and living in a great communities and happy communities and safe communities. And we want great jobs and we want to be respected by the rest of the world; not taken advantage of by the rest of the world, which has gone on for decade after decade. We should all want the same thing. How can it be any different than those things?
