The Washington Post has an on going data base of Trump’s lies. In 558 days, President Trump has made 4,229 false or misleading claims.
Trump Said Mexico will pay for his border wall:
Trump wants $18 Billion for his border wall. Despite the fact that under President Obama, illegal immigration was at a 20-year low. Between 2001 and 2015, more Americans were killed by homegrown right-wing extremists than by Islamist terrorists or undocumented immigrants. Mexicans crossing the border are not a national security threat but Trump continues to call them rapist, drug dealers and murderers.
- Trump said that three million undocumented immigrants voted, all for Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 election:
Trump’s bogus voter integrity commission cost the American tax payers over $10 million. They uncovered no evidence to support the president’s claims of widespread voter fraud. This was a classic example of Trump’s lies, based on no evidence, costing Americans money.
- Trump said on the campaign trail, he would not have time to play golf because he would be running the country:
Trump tweeted 27 times about Obama golfing. As of August 1st, it was Trump’s 183rd day at a Trump property and his 140th day at a Trump golf club as president. Obama spent $96 million on travel in 8 years. It is estimated that Trump has spent over $130 million in travel and The Secret service has spent over $150,000 in renting golf carts and cars to protect the liar- in-chief.
The president’s sons traveled overseas for Trump family business on two trips that cost the nearly $250,000. Taxpayers footed the bill for hundreds of thousands of dollars in hotels, airfare and other costs for Secret Service protection.
Trump is running America like he ran his businesses and we all know how bad that turned out. You don’t need to be an economist or have a crystal ball to figure out the obvious. Trump will bankrupt America but his family will be financially secure for a century.
He is the ultimate con-man, grifter and liar. He will do anything to make money no matter how many people suffer. It is who he has always been.
