CNN Praises Trump’s ‘Pitch Perfect’ Opioid Speech: ‘He Deserves Credit’


CNN Praises Trump's 'Pitch Perfect' Opioid Speech: 'He Deserves Credit' While President Donald Trump often clashes with CNN, the cable news network spent a segment praising the presidents speech Thursday declaring the opioid crisis a national public health emergency During the ceremony at the White House, Trump talked personally about his “brother Fred,” who battled alcohol addiction and whom the president credits for why hes never had a drink

“We dont often hear or see the president open up that personally as he did today,” CNNs Wolf Blitzer said “It was a pretty powerful moment” CNN editor at large Chris Cillizza commended the president for not talking about himself during Thursdays ceremony on opioid addiction Cillizza said that while Trump usually “brags on himself and how smart he is

he deserves credit for focusing on the issue, and I think he did it in a way that is very rare for him, which is he didnt brag” “We do talk so much on this program and in general about the president being a little tone deaf at times,” added CNN political analyst Rebecca Berg “But this was pitch perfect”

“Yeah, and you know, I dont know if hes going to do more of it, but he probably should, right?” Blitzer said Trumps relationship with CNN has remained on the rocks throughout his young presidency And while he recently granted Fox News its 18th interview since taking office, CNN still has yet to secure a sit-down with the president
