Sunday, Senior Campaign Advisor, Jason Miller posted on his Twitter timeline that a widely circulated story from CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, about President Donald J. Trump getting advice from his son in law, Jared Kushner, was not true.
COllins had started the gossip on Twitter Saturday evening, and it was widely retweeted and referred to on social media.
However, according to people who actually work with Trump, the story is not close to true.
“This story is not true. Given undetermined electoral outcomes in multiple states and serious voting irregularities and lack of transparency in others, Jared has advised @realDonaldTrump to pursue all available legal remedies to ensure accuracy,” Miller wrote.

In the CNN story, a group of “journalists” reported the following:
“Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has approached the President about conceding the election, two sources tell CNN.
The move comes following Trump’s assertion in a statement from his campaign — moments after CNN projected that President-elect Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States — that Biden is “rushing to falsely pose as the winner” and that the race is “far from over.”
“I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands,” Trump said in the statement, which states that the campaign’s legal battle will begin Monday.
Biden-Harris deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said Saturday night, as CNN has reported, that there has been no communication between Biden and Trump, or between any representatives from either campaign, since the race was called earlier in the day.”
The Democrats and their media allies are eager to push disinformation about the status of the 2020 Election, claiming that it has been settled, and Trump is in someway responsible to concede to his opponent, Democrat Joe Biden.
Kaitlin Collins had been on Twitter the previous night, Saturday night, floating the gossip on social media. Other reports were posted that alleged Collins had been spreading another story that people close to Trump had been trying to get him to concede, as well as the story that Kushner had spoken to the Trump about conceding .
Collins has an obvious bias, and Twitter has allowed her to post gossip, with far less scrutiny then they apply to the President of the United States, when he is posting actual news for the public.
CNN doubled down and ran the same story under numerous headlines:
In what appears to be pure propaganda, designed to spread mis inforamtion, Collins wrote for CNN:
“President Donald Trump’s inner circle is beginning to split over his ongoing refusal to accept the results of the 2020 election, as Jared Kushner and first lady Melania Trump advised him to come to terms with President-elect Joe Biden’s victory and his adult sons pressed him and allies to keep fighting.Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has approached him to concede, two sources told CNN. The first lady, according to a separate source familiar with the conversations, has privately said the time has come for him to accept the election loss.Meanwhile, Trump’s two adult sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, have urged allies to continue pressing on and they have pushed Republicans and supporters to publicly reject the results even as CNN and other news organizations projected the race for Biden on Saturday.”
The story was repeated by fellow anchor, Brian Stelter:
Collins and Stelter are obviously giving the network CNN the name: “Fake News”.
