Trump Ratchet Up False Claims In The Thousands

President Donald Trump has had a rollicking number of over 2000 false or misleading claims over the past year, and he has also started the new year with a bang with what now seems to be the false claims of the day.

The Washington Post noted that its database which analyzes, categorizes, and tracks every suspect statement uttered by President Trump averaged more than 5.6 claims a day last year.

On the other hand, politifact.com has listed the following as false statements made by the President for January:

  1. The immigration visa lottery “randomly hands out green cards without any regard for skill, merit, or the safety of American people.”
  2. “We enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.”
  3. Says “22 to 24 people” came to the United States due to family connections with suspect in the October 2017 New York City terror attack.
  4. “I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book.”
  5. There is “substantial evidence of voter fraud.”
  6. The Senate seat won in a special election by a Democrat had been “held for more than thirty years by Republicans.”
  7. Said Dianne Feinstein said, “there is no collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia.
  8. Says his ratings for his first State of the Union address are “the highest number in history.”
