He is innocent of the cunnings of diplomacy.Trump's critics go ballistic precisely because he says anything to anyone, anywhere, anytime, without filters, euphemisms, equivocation. His enemies are shocked at his directness; his handlers worried that he needlessly is so explicit. He is innocent of the cunnings of diplomacy.
I agree with those who judge one’s temperament and ideology on what one does rather than what one is interpreted as saying. Trump says all sorts of things in his art-of-the-deal manner, and the media often report things he didn’t say as if he did. What Trump actually does is what counts. Take for example his supposed “Russian collusion.”
Trump has said many wild things about the Russians—most infamously joking that perhaps they could help find Hillary’s deleted emails. But what he has done far exceeds anything punitive from the Obama administration: he upped sanctions on Russia, got out of an asymmetrical agreement with Russia on short-range missiles, sold weapons to Ukraine, jawboned against the Germany-Russia natural gas deal, killed Russian mercenaries in Syria, crashed world oil and natural gas prices, the essence of the Russian economy, by green lighting horizontal drilling and fracking. He also upped the US defence budget and pressed NATO members to keep their promises—all to the annoyance of Putin.
Innocent nope. Trump thinks he is magnificent at diplomacy but sadly he leaves a trail of resentment behind him sometimes for no reason at all except to satisfy his own ego and portray to his base that he is big, tough, and strong. Which he isn't, he is a laughing stock around the world. Trump supporters don't care but with China continually growing in world leadership and Trumps erosion of world wide trust in America they should.

Yes some LW msm media may do that now and again but there is also many, many, many times that he or the WH will adamantly deny he said something even though the things being laughed at were on live TV. There are also a many instances from the RW media too. It isn't a one way street. Just look at all of the things the RWM claim that Biden has supposedly said or claimed that are blatant lies.
Should I mention the 20,000+ fact checked lies and/or general whoppers he has uttered or tweeted in 3.5 years or brush those aside?

There is no supposed “Russian collusion.” The Trump campaign and Trump family members actively engaged a so called 'enemy of the state' no less than ONE HUNDRED & FORTY EIGHT TIMES. The Mueller report does say that Trump and Trump family members lied and evaded answering truthfully about many of these meetings. Further more Trump was not 'exonerated' from collusion either. The GOP let him get away with it!
...most infamously joking that perhaps they could help find Hillary’s deleted emails.
That was not a joke. He wanted them so badly he was even willing to become an IMPEACHED loser to get them. The GOP let him get away with it!
If Trump loses in November it will all come down to his failed leadership on dealing with Covid. Trump would rather double down on his mistakes and poor comments than man the fcuk up and deal with it. Praying that Covid will magically disappear and saying "Oh well, sucks to be you" regarding 155,000+ deaths is NOT what Americans expect from a President.
Americans on both sides are seeing the true Trump which is a man that only cares about himself and his poll numbers, and a President that has divided America more than any other President in history.
The bottom line is this: If you only read one side of the msm media you will base your decisions accordingly, either Trump has been sent by God to save America or Trump has been sent by the devil to destroy it. The truth will be somewhere in the middle.
A great site to read both sides and read what the rest of the world thinks of American politics is this one.
