Donald Trump: We’re going directly to the voters

You’ve seen it – the liberal media can’t stop telling outrageous lies about me.

They are really a disgrace to journalism, and they’re so desperate to mislead the American people about our campaign!

Yet at every stage we continue to prove them wrong, including:

— Smashing the Republican primary vote record by 1.4 MILLION votes;

— Pulling off an incredible Republican National Convention, with much higher viewership than the Democrats’ disastrous convention;

— Packing stadiums everywhere we go;

— Raising $82 million in July alone from hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters.

Now we must continue to build on our great momentum all across the country.

We know the Clinton campaign will cheat to win – just like they did in the race for the Democrat nomination.

And we know the liberal media will continue to say and do ANYTHING to put Crooked Hillary Clinton in the White House!

I know you’ve been following this race closely. I’m sure you’re as sick and tired of their desperate lies as I am.

Day in and day out they attack me, our campaign, our Republican friends down the ticket and supporters like you all across the country…

…while giving Crooked Hillary a free pass on her terrible policies and long record of failure and cronyism!

Don’t let them get away with it – help me prove our opponents and the liberal media wrong about the Trump movement, by growing our team and WINNING on Election Day!

We’re going to reach the American people directly with our message about making better deals for our country, bringing back our jobs, and achieving a brighter future for every American.

$400 Million Airlifted by US to Iran as Detained Americans Released

The U.S. government airlifted the equivalent of $400 million to Iran this past January, which occurred as four detained Americans were released by Tehran.

The cash flown to Iran consisted of euros, Swiss francs, and other currencies because U.S. law forbids transacting American dollars with Iran.

The cash transfer was supposed to be the first installment paid in a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a failed 1979 arms deal dating from just before the Iranian Revolution.

State Department spokesman John Kirby denied the cash transfer was done to secure the release of the four Americans, Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, Amir Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine; Christian pastor Saeed Abedini and Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari, whose case had not been publicized before the release.

“The negotiations over the arms deal settlement and were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home,” Kirby said in a statement. “Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side.”

“The funds that were transferred to Iran were related solely to the settlement of a long-standing claim at the U.S.-Iran Claims Tribunal at The Hague,” Kirby’s statement concluded.

Since the cash was airlifted, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has arrested two more Iranian-Americans. Tehran has also detained dual-nationals from France, Canada and the U.K. in recent months.

“Paying ransom to kidnappers puts Americans even more at risk,” Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., said in a statement. “While Americans were relieved by Iran’s overdue release of illegally imprisoned American hostages, the White House’s policy of appeasement has led Iran to illegally seize more American hostages.”
