Ruddy to Stephanopoulos: Press Ignoring Trump's Achievements

By    |   Monday, 20 Mar 2017 09:48 AM

The news media is dwelling on President Donald Trump's wiretapping allegations when there are "so many things" for them to discuss, Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Sunday.

"I do think that the press is harping on this," Ruddy said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," before mentioning a recent poll showing 54 percent of Americans believe the media is being too tough on Trump.

Trump two weeks ago tweeted that former President Barack Obama had wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower during the presidential election, allegations FBI Director James Comey is expected to undercut Monday at a House Intelligence Committee hearing.

Ruddy, who was in Mar-a-Lago over the weekend and spent time with Trump, said the wiretapping claims need to be investigated, but that the press has plenty of good to focus on concerning Trump's first 100 days in office.

"Let's talk about the first 100 days of the presidency," Ruddy said. "The incredible record the president has had - A-plus cabinet; hoping to create tens of thousands of new jobs; Merkel, a good meeting with her; probably got hundreds of millions in concessions. And the healthcare plan is coming.

"I do think when you look at the broader scope, you're not talking about the president's achievements," he said. "We have never had a president this successful using just the bully pulpit, getting companies all over the world to bring jobs. He's getting NATO countries to increase their budget."

With healthcare, Trump was willing to tackle one of the most serious problems we have in the country, Ruddy said.

"Yet we're always focused on one little tweet. I think the American people in the heartland have a different view than the people in Washington," Ruddy said.
