Neil Cavuto of Fox News laid into President Donald Trump on Thursday evening during his show, “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” asking him to stop saying things that, in his words, “aren’t true” — and asserting that the president could send the U.S. into a financial crisis.
Cavuto listed about a dozen of these so-called untruths, and then said, in a plaintive tone, “None of these make the market any less impressive, maybe just the guy overseeing it all. Mr. President, you’re that guy.”
The list of Trump “untruths” Cavuto rattled off included, “Like when you argue that Ohio Gov. John Kasich was unpopular when he wasn’t, or that U.S. Steel was building six new steel mills when they weren’t, or [that] your poll numbers were higher than when Abraham Lincoln was president, even though we did have polls then, or [when you] argued crime was way up in Germany, when it’s the lowest in decades.”
Cavuto continued, “[You] said foreigners were screwing us with 20-plus percent tariffs on our cars, but not a word about the 20 percent tariffs that we slap on their trucks. [You] argue that we have a massive trade deficit with Canada, when we’re actually running a current account surplus with Canada …”
@FoxNews My family and I just watched the rant from Neil Cavuto on our President. My family will no longer watch Cavuto. We will move over to Fox Business.

Cavuto said bitingly, “I like tax cuts and soaring markets as much as anybody, but what good is it to fatten your wallet if you’ve lost your soul? If you forget your friends and you embolden your enemies?”
“I know you’ll call this fake, but the implications of what you’re doing, Mr. President, are very real. You are so darned focused on promoting a financial boom that you’ve failed to see that you are the one creating this moral bust.”
