DID YOU KNOW THAT TRUMP TOLD 30,573 UNTRUTHS DURING HIS 4 YEAR TERM AS U. S. PRESIDENT? It’s the first of its kind, a new unbelievable record set by him.
The Washington Post Fact Checker started tracking former President Donald Trump’s false or misleading claims as a first-100-days project but in response to reader requests, they continued to add to the database through his entire term.
By the time Trump left office, he had accumulated 30,573 untruths during his presidency — averaging about 21 erroneous claims a day.
Trump made about six false or misleading claims a day in his first year as president, 16 a day in his second year, 22 a day in his third year — and 39 a day in his final year.
