What Works Week 8:Donald Trump: Democrats ‘Medicare for All’ plan will demolish promises to seniors

Headline: Donald Trump: Democrats ‘Medicare for All’ plan will demolish promises to seniors

In this Op-Ed written by President Donald Trump talks about the dangers of Medicare for all and why we should work to stop the democrats from the perspective of our commander and chief. The article talks about how democrats want to allow open borders and give health care for all which Trump speculates will ruin our medicare system and limit the ability of consumer to chose their own insurance.

The Op-ed is riddled with lies and misstatements and almost comes off as propaganda than anything. He almost makes a campaign ad with his speech which completely ignores facts. USA Today should have fact check this significantly before it was published an not gave the president a mouthpiece to spew absolute lies from. They later went back and edited it but the corrections should have taken place on the front end to avoid the lies and such being disseminated.

USA Today did have an obligation to release the story though as they strive to be a nonpartisan newspaper and must give a voice to all sides.
