President Trump in an early morning tweet on Tuesday said the high school students involved in an encounter with a Native American man that went viral have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be.
Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be, Trump tweeted.
They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good maybe even to bring people together, he added.
It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!

Late Monday, Trump accused the media of smearing the students.
"Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback!" Trump tweeted, before adding a quote tied to Fox News host Tucker Carlson's show.

Video clips initially passed around social media over the weekend appeared to show the students from a Catholic high school in Covington, Ky., harassing and taunting the man, Nathan Phillips, a Vietnam veteran, at the Indigenous People's March in Washington, D.C.
The most widely shared video featured a student, Nick Sandmann, with an expression many described as smirking as Phillips played his drum directly in front of him.
Sandmann and several other students were wearing Make America Great Again apparel during the encounter.
Additional footage and reports emerging later, however, appeared to show that Phillips approached Sandman after other protesters started hassling the students.
Sandmann said in a statement Sunday that initial reports about the confrontation were based on "misinformation" and "outright lies."
Duke LaCrosse, all over again.
Thank you President Trump for saying the exact words that need to be said.
Finally burned down her BF's house and murdered him.
She'd been doing stuff like this HER WHOLE LIFE.
Think of all the people who get smeared by the media and do not have the President of the United States standing-up for them.
Now, President Trump, if you follow us: SIGN AN EO FOR TWO YEARS OF THE WALL. Then, the dems can sit down or take total blame, because nothing would be accomplished by keeping up their attempt to force President Trump to abandon his supporters!
At the trial black people in the audience were openly TELLING the families of the boys they were going to kill them, giving their addresses to prove they knew where to go.
Not just initial reports, the misinformation and lies continue.
Also, don't for a moment believe the misinformation and lies were put out there by accident. It was 100% intentional. The people standing around taking the pictures and video were there and saw what really happened. They chose to post and spin it as a lie anyway.
So will next year’s March For Life! Probably the intent of the smear the whole time. Ruin their lives so others are afraid to show up and support their cause.
Ms. Mangum is currently serving a prison term for second-degree murder.
Malania should visit the school as part of her BE BEST program congratulating the students in handling the bullies without violence.
And think about this folks. At the end of last year the media was giving themselves all these courage awards for being under assault. Trump was the greatest threat to the First Amendment in the history of this country.
Who is the threat, those who question power or those who abuse it?
The First Amendment conveys upon the press a great power that should come with a great responsibility. They have abused that power beyond all comprehension. And their response? You watch, in the coming days they will circle the wagons and THEY will claim victimhood.
Some people LOOOOVE being conned
With all due respect and admiration for Melania, most of recorded history, along with my own experience, maintain that the above is very rarely possible and/or effective.
Clearly we have entered Goerge Orwell’s ‘1984’ just took 25 years longer th a he thought. These boys are clearly guilty of ‘facecrime’!
My bet, as well.
As lawsuits proceed, it will be interesting to see what the depositions and discovery reveal.
With all due respect, how effective was Daniel?
That young man looked like the proverbial Daniel in the Lion’s Den. And to read his description of events, which none have reason to doubt at this point, I would suggest that surely the Lord was with him, strengthening him.
Doing Right is a powerful statement that can awaken shame in even those who seem hopelessly lost. You will not save Chief Crying Wolf or the foul-mouthed Blacks who were “protesting” inventions of their own, tiny minds, but some on the Left are, I believe reached by the shameful treatment of these boys and their courageous stand.
P.S. The President’s tweet is almost poetry. I hope his words come true.
Another daily example of the corrupt fake news dispensing any false narrative they can in a knee jerk fashion.
The media is starting to notice that they have NO credibility in the real world.
