McEnany Blasts Anti-Trump Press After Historic Summit: 'You're Rooting Against Peace'
Kayleigh McEnany slammed some mainstream media outlets for finding ways to criticize President Trump even after his historic agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.
She said that some outlets were rooting against the deal and were sinking "to new negative lows" with their coverage.
"If you're rooting against this deal -- and it appears that some in the media were, at least by their coverage -- you're not only rooting against America. You're rooting against peace. You're rooting against the free world," she said.
McEnany said that Trump deserves credit for the agreement and that it's making the world safer.
Trump and Kim signed a document on Tuesday stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."
The historic agreement came after the two leaders held several meetings throughout the day.
Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov argued that although the media as a whole agrees that history was made, she is more concerned about the results of Trump's action.
"There is a lot of hypocrisy going on right now certainly about [former] President [Barack] Obama, who wanted to normalize relations with Cuba," she said.
She said that many people were critical of Obama traveling to Cuba and meeting with Raúl Castro.
Tarlov added that it was hypocritical to call Kim a "a very talented man" shortly after saying Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "acted so meek and mild" during the G7 Summit.
McEnany, spokesperson for the Republican National Committee, also said that Trump's agreement will bode well for Republicans in the midterm elections.
"He's achieving history at record rates," she said.
