Gotta stop fake news when you hear and correct it. It is in the ATS motto "Deny Ignorance"

Obama Whitehouse Archives

Obama


Today I am signing the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act into law. It authorizes vital water projects across the country to restore watersheds, improve waterways and flood control, and improve drinking water infrastructure. The law also authorizes $170 million for communities facing drinking water emergencies, including funding for Flint, Michigan, to recover from the lead contamination in its drinking water system.

Can you link me to where they said Trump did this and not the EPA? Articles I read only mentioned the EPA.

These are the articles I read

www.reuters.com...

www.cnn.com...

www.rt.com...

Again can you link the "fake news" articles because otherwise your basically creating a narrative with your OP. I don't think anyone gave Trump credit for it.

Yes. I called out the other poster in the thread giving credit to Trump for the Flint money.

However, they didn't change their incorrect Fake news thread at all and in fact just continued to try and cover his lie.

That is the problem. It's not ignorance. It's willful deception on the part of some members here to keep others from knowing the truth.

They will continue to lie and post propaganda knowingly in order to fool other people into believing in some other reality than the one that is actually happening.

But I agree that we do need to call them out for it when they do it.

Oh I thought it was from a msm article or an official Whitehouse statement.

Question from your link... Why did it take Obama until Dec 16th 2016 to sign this Act?

The original article come from Sean Hannity.

He's a Fox News "Reporter" and that is his title originally. So you can chalk him up as the source of the lie if you want.

It doesn't seem like he had his heart into it if he waited to the last minute. I'm from Flint born at Hurley grew up in the north end Beecher. Not a safe place these days.

"That member" never corrects anything, even when "that member" has their ridiculous spins or blatant lies pointed out. It just either ignores the comments that disprove it's claims entirely or deflects with copious amounts of smiley faces.

Gotta get them starz, even if it means lying to get them

And this was posted:


The funds are part of the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, which was approved in 2016. The money was officially awarded on Friday, and will help the city accelerate programs to replace service lines that have leached lead in to the city’s water supply.


So yes while it was Trump's EPA awarding the cash, it was because of a law signed in 2016.

Where exactly is the lie? Deception maybe, but I don't see an outright lie.

Maybe not a lie, but deception was involved in an attempt to make it seem like it was Trump and his admin who were behind this.

A lie, deception, spin...all the same in the end. FAKE NEWS.

It was signed by Obama and approved by congress in 2016. Trump's EPA didn't do anything to get credit for. It was already a done deal.

All they did is NOT repeal it. You don't get credit for simply NOT REPEALING something that has already passed. He had no part in any of it.

Well since the OP refused to correct the record, I took it upon myself to do it for them.


Fake News has to be stopped and called out.

Does anyone else see the irony in the left still blaming the previous administration for everything?

2016:
It was Bush's fault!

2017:
It was Obama's fault!

Obama had 8 years and tried to get something done before he left because he probably knew Trump would fix it anyway. There is no other explanation for him to to do nothing for so long.

Therefore this is all on Trump, after all that is what we are told if anything goes wrong...like the division in the country, for example... around long before Trump ever ran but now it is he who is blamed and he who needs to fix it according to liberals.

Can't have it both ways.

Well done President Trump for FINALLY getting something done in Flint.

Right on time. Time to try and change the subject now.

You guys are getting so predictable.

Next comes the shift to Hillary.

After that starts the personal attacks.

Give me a break.

I didn't mention emails. I am pointing out the fact that cramming in some good at the end of 8 years and doing nothing for the prior 8 years tells a story.

The history books will show the lives of people in Flint getting better under Trump's watch, after Obama failed to help for 8 years, and like I said these are liberal rules that chalk this win up to Trump.

You can't blame Trump for the division in the country and then credit his predecessor for any of the good. It's one or the other, make your choice.
