TruNews, the far-right Christian “news” site owned by whacked out conspiracy nut Rick Wiles, received White House credentials and a special invitation yet again for a major event. Despite Wiles’ long history of vicious anti-Semitism, he was given credentials to cover Trump’s trip to the Davos meeting of the world’s wealthiest people in Switzerland.
The White House granted press credentials to a Christian news site whose founder claimed that President Donald Trump’s impeachment was a “Jew coup” organized by a “Jewish cabal” in anti-Semitic remarks.
Five employees of the Florida-based conservative Christian news outlet TruNews received press credentials from the White House to cover Trump’s trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, last week, founder Rick Wiles told The New York Times from a ski lodge reserved for press members by the Trump administration. The outlet was not granted special access to Trump, though TruNews’ Edward Szall asked Ivanka Trump a question during a news conference, according to the report.
“We want to thank President Trump and the White House for extending the invitation to be here,” Wiles said in a video. “We are honored to be here representing the kingdom of heaven and our king Jesus Christ.”
He supports Trump, so it doesn’t matter that he’s practically a neo-Nazi. Actually, that may be precisely why he keeps getting credentials for events like this. He fits the profile perfectly.
