Fact Checker: President Trump made 19,127 false or misleading claims in 1,226 days

pandemic has more or less shut down the United States, the president has been unable to hold such mass events. He tried substituting a daily news conference at the White House, with the occasional interview with a friendly host, but it’s not quite the same thing.

The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a whole new genre of Trump’s falsehoods. The category in just a few months has reached 800 claims, withIt takes at least 20 repeats of a Three- or Four-Pinocchio claim to meritTrump’s penchant for repeating false claims is demonstrated by the fact that the Fact Checker database has recorded more than 450 instances in which he has repeated a variation of the same claim at least three times..

Nope. The president once could brag about the state of the economy, but he ran into trouble when he made a play for the history books. By just about any important measure, the pre-coronavirus economy was not doing as well as it did under Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson or Bill Clinton — or Ulysses S. Grant. Moreover, the economy already was beginning to hit the head winds caused by Trump’s trade wars, with the manufacturing sector in an apparent recession.

If it was my priests, Id be worried.

More bullshit from the Washington Post

Really don't understand how can he be voted to president? Means a lot of people are stupid?

incredulous. Virtually everything out of his mouth is a lie---and his mouth never shuts up

Trump says he “loves the uneducated.” You are at the top of his list. There’s the truth. As long as trump keeps blowing his dog whistle the violence by his minions will continue.

Lol. So you are back to trump. No more protest

'false or misleading claims' Why not simply use the word 'lie', WaPo?

Because he's a pathological liar. A symptom of his malignant narcissism. His below average intelligence is also wrecking havoc. I suggest this not mere protest. This is a rebellion. It will not stop til the madman is removed from office. And all who follow him.

September 2017, Trump administration decided to close the US embassy in Havana, since then thousands of Cuban families have been left in a migratory limbo and the annual visa agreements have been breached. Open the embassy of Havana please, no more suffering for our families

$10 says the “very fine people” lie is on this list.

Lies they are lies.

MaxduPreez Thats close to CNN, WHO, and washington post figures

The Trump Lie List has grown bigger daily. Be proud, SenateGOP!

How many false statements do u make in a day

How about yall?

Why is it so hard to say “lies?”

Lol, Trump Derangement Syndrome is still going strong. Trump must have said Tremendous again today--another lie.

JasonLaCanfora Sounds like politics?


Fact checker: WaPo has made up lies for at least 4 years about a Russia hoax to overturn a duly elected President by we the people.

America us burning but the fact check is important.

No, surely they've missed some.

realDonaldTrump lies so much to keep his ignorance /racist followers happy. Lately, he has been watching his country burn. He is incapable of compassion, soothing words, or truthful actions. America, it's time to FireTrump FireGOP ByeDon2020 VoteBlue
