Conway: Disconnect Between What Media Tell Americans Is Important To Them And What Americans Tell Pollsters


Kellyanne Conway talks media coverage of Donald Trump's presidency on Thursday's FOX & Friends.

"I'm old enough to remember when news stations reported the news and didn't just have a parade of pundits rendering their opinions and conjecturing," she said.

KELLYANNE CONWAY: Look there’s a huge disconnect between what the media are telling Americans is important to them, and what Americans are telling your pollsters and their pollsters and all of us what’s important to them. The president is very focused on the issues that he addressed in the last three days: a new policy in Afghanistan and a way forward that also brings India and Pakistan into the fold. You have day 2 where he talked about illegal immigration and the border wall. Sanctuary cities legislation that’s passed the House; Kate’s Law passed the House waiting for the Senate to act. 47% decrease in illegal border crossings, including a decrease in the number of children coming over, also illegally. And that’s important because we want them to be protected. This is about safety and security for all at the border. And then yesterday of course, the media just don’t want to cover what happened. The president beseeched the nation to unify, to appeal to our better angel, to our higher purposes, the things that bind us together as Americans. We’re all in the same team. That got scant coverage.
