Slanderers of President Donald Trump on both the left and the right should be ashamed for their "hasty" and "embarrassingly wrong" misrepresentations of the president's views, conservative author David Horowitz writes in a new column.
Horowitz, author of "Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America," outlines three lies that have propagated about Trump despite his presidential actions to the contrary:
- "Isolationist" Trump would abandon NATO.
- Trump is anti-Muslim.
- Trump is an "extraordinary and inveterate liar."
Horowitz, in the column written for Breitbart, slams the never Trumpers for their assertion that Trump would somehow weaken world order by backing out of NATO; Trump has, instead, affirmed Article V and thus "strengthened the alliance," he says.

"These indisputable achievements refute the canard that Trump is incompetent, over his head, and therefore a danger to national security. They should warrant both an apology for the error and praise for his achievement. But no such reappraisal has been forthcoming," Horowitz writes.
Trump's meeting with the leaders of 55 Muslim states should be enough to rebut the cheap anti-Muslim label that gets attached to the president as "a dangerous ignoramus and 'incompetent fool,' oblivious of the fact that to win the war against ISIS, America needs to build a coalition of Muslim countries in the Middle East, not alienate them," Horowitz writes.
But no, the slanderers have not budged.
"Does this achievement not merit serious second thoughts from Democrat and Republican resisters to his presidency? Apparently not. Hatred for Trump is so irrational that it still overrides concerns for party, principles, and country," he writes.
And the lies that Trump is a liar? Horowitz reminds that Trump is not the purveyor of lies like "you can keep your doctor" and "ISIS is on the run" like his predecessor.
"But the 'lies' Trump is accused of telling fall mainly into the category of opinions over which the left differs with him, or the exaggerations of a salesman who makes off-the-cuff claims without bothering to check the facts (not the same thing as a lie proper)," Horowitz writes.
"I don't expect that there will be apologies forthcoming for these injustices to Trump — and therefore to the American people whose security depends on him. At least not anytime soon. The campaign to sabotage and overthrow the Trump presidency through slanders will continue," Horowitz concludes.
