Trump on Track for 2,000 Misleading Claims In First Year

Trump will be setting a record https://politicalwire.com/2017/10/10/trump-track-2000-misleading-claims-first-year/

The Washington Post has completed “two-thirds of our year-long project analyzing, categorizing and tracking every false or misleading claim by Trump, as well as his flip-flops. As of our latest update Oct. 10, 2017, or his 264th day in office, the president has made 1,318 claims over 263 days. He has averaged five claims a day, even picking up pace since the six-month mark.”

“With almost exactly 100 days left to go in our year-long project, Trump is inching ever closer to breaking 2,000 claims.”

3. Baloney. Alleged fact chechers 'check' his OPINIONS. Worse, they assume the most unreasonable

interpretation of his remarks, and start with that as the base.

6. How many do you manage?

Is someone keeping track for you?

Do you tire of being wrong?

"Trump has alienated women, college educated and non-white voters and so his only hope is white non-college educated male voters. Too bad because there are literally not enough of these voters to save Trump"

Oh, and

One Day. One ID. One Vote.

Poll tested, voter approved.

7. President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days

This is a record https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2017/11/14/president-trump-has-made-1628-false-or-misleading-claims-over-298-days/?utm_term=.0e72c148a342

For some reason, our year-long project analyzing, categorizing and tracking every false or misleading claim by President Trump had seemed like quite a burden in the past month. Well, the numbers are in and now we know why: In the past 35 days, Trump has averaged an astonishing nine claims a day.

The total now stands at 1,628 claims in 298 days, or an average of 5.5 claims a day. That puts the president on track to reach 1,999 claims by the end of his first year in office, though he obviously would easily exceed 2,000 if he maintained the pace of the past month. (Our full interactive graphic can be found here.)

As regular readers know, the president has a tendency to repeat himself — often. There are now at least 50 claims that he has repeated three or more times.

Trump’s most repeated claim, uttered 60 times, was some variation of the statement that the Affordable Care Act is dying and “essentially dead.” The Congressional Budget Office has said that the Obamacare exchanges, despite well-documented issues, are not imploding and are expected to remain stable for the foreseeable future. Indeed, healthy enrollment for the coming year has surprised health-care experts.
