Van Jones Wants Trump To Give Susan Rice The Presidential Medal Of Freedom [Watch]

Andrew Kugle, Washington Free Beacon

Van Jones said Wednesday on his CNN show, "The Messy Truth," that President Donald Trump should give Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama's national security adviser, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

"She got very disturbing information, and she looked into it. And as best we can tell, she did her job inside the proper channels," Jones said. "For doing this, Donald Trump should give Susan Rice the Presidential Medal of Freedom, OK?"

Jones also criticized conservative media for its reporting on Rice.

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
