RNC’s McDaniel Calls on Nation, Media to Support POTUS, Celebrate US Achievements During Overseas Trip

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel claimed that Americans should support President Donald Trump during his trip overseas during an interview with Fox Business.

The Republican party chair claimed that the constant flow of negativity should stop while he is on a positive overseas trip.

“I just have a reminder for the media,” McDaniel said. “He’s your president, too. This is our president. This is our country. We’re celebrating the anniversary, 75 years of D-Day.”

She also pointed out that the country’s achievements could be praised and that negativity will do more harm than good.

As IJR News previously reported, Trump is on a state trip to the United Kingdom and is currently in Normandy to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

“To the men who sit behind me, and to the boys who rest in the field before me: Your example will never, ever grow old,” said Trump. “Your legend will never tire. And your spirit — brave, unyielding & true — will never die.”

McDaniel claimed that the president should be encouraged while overseas.

“This is a time where we should be celebrating our President, the great achievements of America,” said McDaniel. “And I don’t think the American people like this constant negativity. There are times when we should be lifting up our president, especially when he’s overseas.”


She also pointed out that the criticism doesn’t stop him from continuing to work.

“He’s trying so hard,” McDaniel said. “He’s never been given a break. But [criticism] doesn’t stop him. He keeps his foot on the gas.”

“He’s so positive,” McDaniel added, referencing Trump.

Trump has faced extensive criticism for policy decisions and for his bombastic behavior. However, he has gotten some praise from American media for his speech during the D-Day ceremonies in France on Thursday.


  1. There is nothing more annoying than when people who are so invested in their hate for someone, can’t even admit that the focus of their hate, continues to perform his job with successful results that effect everyone’s well being. Just as our thriving economy has a positive effect on the world economy, the constant negativity of our POTUS, effects the image of our nation on the rest of the world. We should proudly unite when our President- who represents all Americans on foreign soil and does so in a way that makes us proud to be Americans.

  2. In times past when our President was overseas, particularly when there to laud the efforts of the United States, Great Britain, France and our Allies Military on this almost hallowed day: D-Day, 6 June, 75 years ago. In times past he was widely supported by the Congress, the Media and the Populace in his endeavors.
    Today we have a conniving Congress and Press who blatantly demean him, his Family and his Administration. The most thoroughly investigated man on earth with no objective evidence of his, his Family’s or Administrations wrong doing. A few have been convicted as, perhaps they should or should not have been. When there was a question he took action to do the right thing as he saw it. Now, our illustrious Speaker openly calls for his imprisonment. What in the name of God above has happened to our Country? When and where will this foolishness end?
    God help our Country!

  3. “He’s so positive” used to describe the man who can’t even stop calling fellow Americans juvenile names while supposedly honoring the brave heroes who landed at Normandy…

    1. And your point is? This is OUR President and he is overseas praising the great men who fought on the beaches of Normandy to save the free world! Can’t you give it a rest!

      1. The problem is he cannot give it a rest, and the way he continually insults hard-working American patriots even when honoring the fallen or talking to foreigners abroad is a damn shame and a disgrace. Why don’t you see that?

        1. I have not heard Trump insult any but members of the political elite and the media. I have not heard him be anything but sportive of working private industry Americans. I do not include the politicians, media and much of academia in that group.

        2. Name just ONE hardworking American patriot who he has insulted. Considering the hatered, the insults and disrespect he has endured, as well as his family, it would appear that is “a damn shame and a disgrace”. Nevertheless he keeps going and accomplishing more than any president in many years. So why don’t you see that?

          1. Choosing to be blind Democrats, they are not capable of seeing the good Trump has done; good which has benefited them as well. Their ONLY goal is to remove him from Office for a yet to be determined reason; that he beat their mentally, socially and physically unfit radicalized “Queen” in 2016; or, for no other reason than for his red hair.

        3. I did see it..during an interview with laura Ingraham before any of the D-Day events started, and had nothing to do with them. Why is it that you can’t differentiate?

    2. Personally, he’s being nice to the a$$ hats that are CONSTANTLY spewing lies, name calling, etc. Have you listened for 5 minutes to MSNBC (MSDNC) or CNN (Clinton News Network) and the garbage these partisan hacks spew? Heck – even one minute should clue in a person with 1/2 a pea brain. If the left can’t take the heat then the left needs to stay out of the kitchen and just do their job. Report, quit opining! But they can’t. They call themselves journalists. They are nothing of the sort. #FakeNews lying media = #EnemyOfThePeople
