On Tuesday, President Trump addressed the United Nations and shocking to no one save Left-of-center news agencies, he expressed his strong belief in his own economic policies; in America—its people, way of life, and the Constitution which governs it; and in business enterprise as a path to freedom and prosperity.  Trump’s speech, optimistic and pro-American as it was, falls in the mainstream of American presidential tradition.  Indeed, it is the stuff of a Truman or a Reagan.

But you’d never know it from how it was reported.

The Guardian called it “a blunt, fearful rant.”
