Jeffress slams media after visiting with Trump

Trump prays with pastors after HarveyThe national media is buzzing over James Comey and his anti-Trump book but an advisor to the President says it's business as usual by the commander in chief and his White House staff.

"I'm telling you the difference between what you read and see in the media and reality – it's breathtaking," observes Trump advisor Dr. Robert Jeffress, a Southern Baptist pastor who serves on the President's evangelical advisory council.

"When I go into the West Wing," says Jeffress, "everybody is focused. They're upbeat. They're doing their job."

Comey's book, meanwhile, describes a White House in turmoil led by an angry, impetuous man.

Jeffress tells OneNewsNow he visited the White House late last week and personally met with President Trump, and was pleasantly surprised at what he saw.

"You know, frankly, with all that was in the news I thought he would be discouraged and need some pepping up," Jeffress recalls. "I walked in (and) I have never seen him more focused and positive and upbeat."

The same goes for the staff, he says, who are reportedly looking over their shoulders wondering what errant tweet they are going to have to defend, and waiting for the axe to fall and the Secret Service to escort them out of the building -- at least according to the latest tabloid-like accounts. 

The real problem in Washington, D.C., says Jeffress, is an axis of evil that includes Democrats, liberal Republicans, and the mainstream media, and all three want to remove Trump or cripple his plans.

"We cannot allow the opponents of President Trump to effectively nullify the results of the 2016 elections," the pastor-advisor warns. "If that happens, I think it will have devastating and lasting consequences in our nation."
