On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced his plan to deploy the Army National Guard to the United States border with Mexico. Now CNN journalist Brian Stetler thinks he knows where the idea came from.
Stetler raised the issue Sunday on CNN’s Reliable Sources, stating the president relies only on Fox News and other pro-Trump, confirmation bias promoting sources for all of his information. Trump proudly states he watches Fox News and meets with personalities from the network regularly.
Thank you to Brad Blakeman on @FoxNews for grading year one of my presidency with an “A”-and likewise to Doug Schoen for the very good grade and statements. Working hard!

It is, according to the veteran journalist, “a story that symbolizes everything that is wrong with the Trump era.”
Trump’s “addiction to Fox News” prompts him to take “impulsive actions.”
The line where Fox News ends and where Trump begins is getting blurrier by the day.”
President Trump receives faulty information then he makes impulsive decisions and his staff has to scramble.”
