President Trump has made more than 10,000 false or misleading claims | The Fact Checker


-We were confronted with the problem that Donald Trump says things constantly that are false and misleading. -So we decided to start a database on the Washington Post website cataloguing all of President Trump’s false or misleading claims. -And we’re still paying for the consequence of that ambition. -It was supposed to just be for 100 days. -But after the first 100 days, readers kind of begged us to keep going. So we said we’d do it for another year. And then they begged us to keep going for the rest of his presidency. ♪♪ President Trump has crossed 10,000 false and misleading claims. -So many claims. -There is nothing cool about that. -Normally, reaching 10,000 of anything is good. -There it is! -Whoo! -My goodness! $10,000! [crowd cheering, bell chiming] -But here, it’s just big — like, really big. Like, the state of Maryland is almost 10,000 square miles big. Like 100 times 100 big. So, how did we get here? ♪♪ ♪♪ -We review every speech… -…every tweet, statement… -…White House event, cabinet meetings, campaign rallies… -…really everything he says. -We list all possible factual claims that he has made… -…and then we evaluate them, and if they’re false or misleading, we add them to our database. -Of course, every president says things that are false or misleading. -Most modern presidents have one big false or misleading claim that is inextricably linked to their time in office. -Well, now you’re going to hear the facts from a White House source, and you know my name. -Some are more memorable than others. -I did not have sexual relations with that woman. -…that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. -They’ll see that if Americans like their doctor, they will keep their doctor. And if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. -I’ve already started building the wall. We’ve built large sections. -But President Trump doesn’t just have one. He has nearly 300 claims that he’s repeated three or more times since taking office, and some of those claims he’s repeated literally hundreds of times. Here are the top three. -We’ve been building the wall. -We’re building the wall. -It’s started. -And we’ve started the wall. -And we’ve started the wall. -It’s doing well. -…including the building of the wall, which… -…we’ve started, but we should build it at one time. -President Trump’s wall is not being built. -The funding that Congress has approved is for repairs and fencing. -Power of the purse isn’t agreeing to it. You can’t do it. That’s the way the federal government works. -You have to see these trade deals. -We’re losing a fortune. -…hundreds of billions… -…hundreds of billions… -We lost $500 billion. -…$500 billion. -…three hundred, four hundred, five hundred… -…billion dollars a year. -…billion dollars a year. Billion! -And for years… -…we were losing a tremendous amount of money. -We’re losing a lot of money. -That’s false. -It’s just a false construct. -Countries don’t make or lose money on trade. It’s not like a pickpocketing situation. -It’s the biggest reduction in taxes in the history of this country. -It’s the biggest tax cut… -It’s the biggest tax cut… -…in American history. -This is the largest tax cut… -…the largest tax cut… -…in the history of our country. -The biggest tax cut, biggest reform of all time. -That’s false. -Trump doesn’t even get past what Obama did. -Trump’s tax cut is the eighth largest in the last 100 years. -But the claims don’t happen in a vacuum. There are trends. Trump made nearly three times as many false or misleading claims in his second year than he did in his first. Almost a quarter of these claims were during campaign-style rallies, and nearly a fifth were about immigration. And what Trump talks about fluctuates based on what’s happening in the news. -We’re doing this in part for the historical record. It is such an unusual situation when you have a president who is constantly saying so many things that are false and misleading. -He’s sui generis. He’s of his own kind. -But that’s what makes it history. -Oh, believe me. If it’s off by one hundredth of a percent, it’s like I end up getting Pinocchios, right? Because you know they’d say, “I’d like to give him a Pinocchio! Four Pinocchios!” -So if there are things you’re curious about or statements you’ve heard and you want to know if they’re right or wrong, check out the link in our description to the full database.

  1. This is the end of the United States of America as we once knew it. When the legally elected President of the U.S. is spied on, investigated for two in a half years, and then must give his personal bank records and tax records to a congress led by Democrats, this is the beginning of a fascist, communist/ socialist third world banana republic. The overwhelming abuse of power and selfishness witnessed for two years shows how much trouble America is in, and Americans should understand what is happening to their country. President Trump and his campaign members have been ILLEGALLY spied on by the FBI, CIA, and now Congress is harassing and viciously attempting to impeach, all backed by Obama appointed Judges. President Trump and his family have experienced a never ending threat by the Democrat/liberal base, otherwise known as gut throats and liars. Likewise, the 95% negative, biased, pro Hillary media coverage has promoted lies against the President to the American people. The media along with their cronies have even elevated coverage on a porn star accusing the President. Why should the American people even vote when the elected candidate cannot even do his job without continual negative attacks. Goodbye America

  2. washington posts journalists are semi litterate. i dont trust their take on anything. bad fake press.

  3. The biggest lie in Presidential History: " You can keep your Doctor " Barrack Obama, 27 times to the American People…… and he knew it was a Lie every time he said it!

  6. Trump is such a bullshitting liar he doesn't even realize he's bullshitted himself. In other words,,, he's too stupid to realize the depth of his own stupidity. Just like his mind-bent Cult 45 base.

  7. WP, Vox, Vice and CNN are the real liars and fake news propaganda machines. Anyone who works for the media need to be shot tbh

  8. I love that the Washington Post is taking the time and energy to let the American public know what a con man and liar he is.

  9. Many democrats like you speaker are going to prison. After the criminals in the White House for decades that have been doing what the Deep State has wanted, now America has a President that will NOT do what the Vatican Jesuit international gangsters want. The entire Barack Obama administration is going to prison for Treason some will be executed, may be you too speaker for your TREASONOUS Globalism that has been building for centuries from Rome.

  10. How about this lie. β€œTrump colluded with the Russians to rig the election”. WAPO peddled that nonsense for two years.

  11. At least we all agree that he didn't lie when he said this: "They tried to take us out, but we are very hard to take out!". You guys are going down. No one is paying attention to your crap anymore and you are going down. The latest hit on you criminal liars was when the Russian collusion crap blew up on your faces!

  12. No. 1 lie starts at 2:12, which could be easily debunked by a simple Google search that WaPO bet none of their audiences would do.

  13. Who is paying youtube to promote this video.. this video came up as an advertisement while i was watching video on Burkha Dutt and Kapil Sibbal conflict…

  14. I'm surprise of all the insulted hurted rightWingers writing their messages. I thought they only get their truths from Rush & Hannity.
    "2 million lies" that's funny.

  15. To that clown and all you maggots believing this crap.go and clean your mother's stinking rottened potato smelly pussies idiots.

  16. They all lie. You just pick out one. Why dont you be unbiased and call out Obama, Hillary, even Illhan. Oh, that's right, your a leftist socialist leaning paper with fake news and you have the balls to call out the President? Hmmm. Wonder who funds you.

  17. As long as trumps lies set and control the narrative America
    remains in the sewer, broken and the laughing stock of the world.

  18. An unfit, incompetent pseudo president, lying shamelessly to you over 500 times a month, is offence against the nation, no left or right.

  19. POTUS is not speaking falsely, and is not a professional politician.
    (Which is a good thing!)

    He speaks logically, which is often misconstrued by those less able to process logical thinking.
    (We are so used to listening to smooth lies and sadly believing them from most all other politicians, many are no longer familiar with truth if the truth they hear is disagreeable to them)

    Donald Trump is one of the most transparent POTUSs we've ever had, and unlike several previous ones doES actuaLLy have our Nation's best interests as priority.

    This POTUS has nothing to gain for himself by serving our country, other than serving our country.

    How many False Accusations have been made against Donald Trump that remain unverified or proven wrong?

    We are commissioned by law of God and man to respect and support our President.

    "There can be many truths in Lies, there are no lies in Truth"

    That goes for all, whatever your perspective.

  20. It’s almost laughable but certainly worrying to see this loyal followers to continually support him. Comprehending that is harder than my university days! Lol

  21. If you have the time to keep track of how many lies someone tells, you have a serious mental problem. Everyone lies. I wonder how many lies the WP has done to it's readers? I would bet they surpassed ten thou. a very, very, long time ago. Wake up Post and look at the reality that is outside your window. Quit smoking your mothers under ware and do some real journalism for a change.

  22. For Trump lying is as normal as drinking water or breathing and for sutch a person to be debunked on sutch a stage is verry hard .
    Trump is the voice of people who have 0 trust for anybody outside there own close families or friends .
    These people love to talk and hate on groups in our socciety whom they probably view or never have met (muslims , gays , mexican criminals )
    So whenever a lie from Trump is debunked by a news outlet Trump's supporters will simply ignore it all together and keep following there leader like sheeps .
    Why ? the easiest explanation is that people find it hard to say "I was wrong ! this is not the truth " .
    Because when people have to say that they have to admit that they fell for a liar and nobody likes that i dont think Trump is ever gonna get caught the lies are to big already –
    its grown into a tumor thats verry hard to destroy.

  23. And the fake news keeps going on and on and on. Washington Post propaganda for the Democratic Party. Fake news

  24. And that's only the public statements. Add another 10K for golf course lies. ie: 'I found my ball", "…that was a birdie"……..

  25. Well you're dead wrong about number one and you're dead wrong about number 2 and you're I'll phone number three you have no credibility therefore no support from someone that speaks the truth go ahead and lie and prop up your line liberal media

  26. Why don't you moronic trump supporters do your own research instead of making blanket claims against this video. It's not hard to catch the orange turd in a lie and even easier to know when he's making misleading statements. He contradicts himself or makes up a bigger lie every time he's caught.

  27. He must be a liar he says CNN is fake news and in bed with the Washington Post. Seems to me like the media is doing a really good job of slanting the truth theirselves. When the news is reported correctly ! All give the benefit of the doubt can't see it anytime in the future.

  28. And how many false and misleading statements has the fake news made? Many more than Trump has I’m sure.

    He IS building the wall so get over it!!!

  29. What The Washington Post does is hate. They hate this president simply because he won. The Democratic party joined the mainstream media. It's pure hate and it's divided the country. The media and the Democrats are the true enemy of this country.

  30. You make anything trump says a lie , you can’t say he isn’t good for you , look what we have here and quit your whining and be thankful he cares for the people in your country!!!!!!!!!

  31. Rep. Al Green (D-TX) has been one of the loudest voices on the left calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump. Representing a constituency that likely still believes that they voted for the legendary singer of such classics as β€œTake Me to the River,” Green has proposed articles of impeachment against Trump numerous times since January 2017, only for his proposals to be knocked down time and again by his own party.
    But while Green usually talks a good game about Trump’s supposed crimes and unfitness for office, this weekend he came about as close as any Democrat has come to admitting that the best part about impeaching Trump is that it would weaken him for the 2020 election. Meaning…this isn’t about carrying out a constitutional duty or protecting the nation from a wicked tyrant. It’s just about winning next November.

  32. More like you clowns twisting every around to suet your fake agenda. Then you cry when you’re called fake news media. Most of the news media are truly the enemy of the people.

  33. If Trump has made 10K the Washington Post has made 100k false statements. THEY PRINT A NEWSPAPER FULL OF LIES every single day.

  34. Trump promises and Liberal courts shut him down. Having Mexico Pay for the wall was truth. A liberal judge said no they won't and it SOMEHOW stuck. We just don't understand why Liberals think they can manufacture New Liberals by outright lying to them and saying Trump Lies. IDIOTS.

  35. lol wow the wp points to some one lol, they are commie libby soros bought n paid for commie anti Constitutional and anti USA slime wipe rag trying to pass as a truthful newspaper who nothing but lies and spin and misinformation and perfidy.

  36. Well let's see the Russian hoax didn't work, the Kavanaugh hoax didn't work, the Coventry kids set up hoax didn't work, the recession hoax didn't work. Now the shameless and disgraceful Washington Post tries to come up with a lying hoax and the NY post is trying to change history by promoting a racism hoax. The msm keeps losing and losing and losing and president Trump and the American people keep winning winning and winning!!!!! Six more years baby!!!!
    By the end of the next 6 years were going to need as many mental institutions as we can get to admit all the Democrat sociopaths and the media psychopaths sitting in rubber rooms strumming their lips with their finger on one hand while their thumb on the other hand is up there asses🀣

  37. One thing Trump is consistent about is lying. Although he didn't keep he's promises to the American people. They would win so much you're get tired of winning. Mexico will pay for the wall. Trump is fact checked by CNN, MSN, and the Washington Post, and get upset or want to avoid the truth it becomes fake news when he's caught. He want you the people to do as he say; not as he do. Believe what he says; not what you hear. Only listen to him; don't fellow your own instinct.
    One Nation under God!

  38. Christ. Facts still exist, but truth is in flux. Good luck everyone. Hold on tight to your sanity, or death. Sweet, sweet death.

  39. Fake news. Liars. Democratic support based on lies and rhetoric. You should be ashamed, this is the beginning of the end for nyt

  40. If Trump has lied 10,000 times it should be very easy to list 100 of the lies here with hardcore proof to back it up. We are all waiting for that.

  41. Apparently there are about 400 people who have seen this really being conned and lied to constantly, multiple times per day.
    Cultists are like that.

  42. Let’s see, Busch lied about weapons of mass destruction, Clinton lied about having an affair, name a political official who hasn’t lied? Believe nobody!!

  43. looks like FOX news is sniffing potus butt aswell…your either ALL in or GET out…period..we dont need COUNTER opinions from WEAK ..DEMOCRAP sounding news anchors..ill get my trumpys message elsewhere..FOff fox.
