BBC’s Wildly Misleading Headline Smears Trump by Fabricating Genocide Comment He Never Made

The establishment media has for years mischaracterized President Donald Trump’s remarks to make him look bad.

The most recent example comes from the BBC, which falsely claimed — or at the very least, strongly implied — in an article headline and accompanying social media post that Trump had denied the genocide of the Armenian people by the Ottoman Turks during World War I.

While there is a dispute over how many Armenian lives were lost, with estimates ranging from the hundreds of thousands to as many as 1.5 million, there is no dispute that Armenian Christians were systematically driven out of the Anatolia peninsula — with untold numbers of them of starved, tortured and killed along the way — in 1915 as the Islamic Ottoman Empire that later became the Republic of Turkey was in its last days.

The headline and tweet both stated as fact, “Trump says Armenia massacres were not genocide, directly contradicting Congress.”

Armenia massacres were not genocide, says Trump

The US president directly contradicts a unanimous vote in the Senate to recognise killings as genocide.

The very first line of the article read, “The Trump administration has said it does not consider the mass killings of Armenians in 1915 to be a genocide, contradicting a unanimous vote by the US Senate.”

However, the Trump administration has said no such thing, and the BBC has been grossly dishonest to assert as much by fabricating a supposed quote that was never said.

    It is such typical Usury Empire tactical divisiveness, fueled most often by lies and distortion, their usual and historical behaviour. The BBC IS the Usury Empire’s main media outlet in the UK. Trump seeks to disengage the Empire from its control of the USA over the past 100 years therefore Trump is the Empire’s enemy. Thus, any fake news that looks to damage Trump is seen as what the BBC should put out. It is just doing the NYT’s job this time as, remember, the NYT is just an MI6 storefront.
