Trump Fights Back with Statements
Against the Lies of Joe Biden, Attacks from Dems, and the Bias of the Media, of Big Tech, and of the J6 Commission

    If you enjoyed reading Trump’s Tweets on Twitter until January 8, 2021 or are enjoying his Truths on Truth Social since April 29, 2022, then you should enjoy this book. It fills in the gap with all of his email Statements issued between those dates. These Statements were often Trump fighting back against the lies of President Joe Biden. They also reflect Trump fighting back against the ongoing bias of the mainstream media (MSM) and of Big Tech and against the Dem-controlled Commission (which Trump calls the “Unselect Committee”) investigating the tragic events of January 6, 2021 (J6).
