TRUMP: “I guess it was the biggest electoral college win since Ronald Reagan.”

FACT: LIE – ‘His electoral college margin was smaller than President Obama’s in 2012. When a reporter questioned Trump’s claim, he later said, “I don’t know. I was just given that information — it was a big margin.”

******************
TRUMP: “I think we’re setting a record, or close to a record, in the time of approval of a cabinet.”

FACT: LIE – ‘Trump has more unconfirmed Cabinet nominees at the four-week mark than any another other President in history. But, here’s a point of reference: President Obama’s cabinet was not complete until April 28, 2009, when his pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, was confirmed’.
******************

TRUMP: “I can’t get my cabinet approved, and they’re outstanding people. Like Senator Dan Coats, who is there, one of the most respected men in the senate. He can’t get approved …”

FACT: Not quite. A Senate intelligence aide says the committee does not have all of his paperwork yet, but that the committee is “eager to get his hearing scheduled.” Committee Chair Sen. Richard Burr told The Hill that “some of that’s out of our control. It’s FBI security, background checks,” telling the paper Coats himself filed everything he needs to. In fact, the committee received some of the necessary disclosures just hours after the press conference’.
******************

TRUMP: “Jobs are pouring out of the country.”

FACT: LIE – ‘The number of jobs in the U.S. has increased every month since October 2010, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’.
******************

TRUMP: “Hillary Clinton gave [Russia] 20 percent of our uranium.”

FACT: LIE – ‘Trump was referring to Russia’s nuclear power agency buying a Toronto-based company that operates on land worth roughly 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity — not actual uranium, according to Politifact. Clinton, who was Secretary of State at the time, couldn’t approve or block the deal. Politifact rated it “Mostly False.”
*****************

TRUMP: “We had to go quicker than we thought because of the bad decision we received from a circuit that has been overturned at a record number. I’ve heard 80 percent. I find that hard to believe. That’s just a number I heard, that they’re overturned 80 percent of the time.”

FACT: DISINFORMATION – ‘According to a 2010 study published in Landslide, the 9th Circuit had an 80 percent reversal rate from 1999 to 2008. It was the top spot for a regional circuit court’.
‘A recent analysis of cases from 2010 to 2015 by SCOTUSBlog concluded that the 9th Circuit also has an 80 percent reversal rate, but that was third place — behind the 6th Circuit with 87 percent and 11th Circuit with 85 percent’.
****************

TRUMP: “People came out and voted like they’ve never seen before.”

FACT: LIE – ‘Around 60 percent of eligible Americans turned out to vote in 2016, according to estimates from the University of Florida’s U.S. Elections Project’.
‘According to researchers at the University of California at Santa Barbara, the highest voter turnout in American history was the election of 1876 with a voter turnout rate of nearly 82 percent’.
****************

TRUMP: “People [addressing reporters], you have a lower approval rate than congress, I think that’s right … I heard lower than Congress.”

FACT: LIE – ‘A Gallup poll last September found that only 32 percent of Americans say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media — a new low. But according to Gallup poll conducted in January, Congress has a 19 percent approval rating’.

TRUMP: “I got 306 electoral college votes.”

FACT: LIE – ‘Trump received 304 votes in the Electoral College. Two electors who were projected to go to him went rogue and voted for other candidates’.
***************

TRUMP: “He [Alexander Acosta] is a member and has been a member of the National Labor Relations Board and has been through Senate confirmation three times.”

FACT: LIE – ‘Acosta is not currently a member of the National Labor Relations Board. He served as a member from 2002 to 2003′.

Building On The Reason For Donald Trump To Resign – ‘Who Told Flynn to Call Russia’?

1dan3

“the truth fears no questions…..” – Might want to tell Donald Trump that. 

February 16, 2017 By Taegan Goddard

‘Daniel Benjamin’:

“As official Washington and the press home in on the permanent disarray in the White House, whether the disgraced Flynn broke the law and who will succeed him after his three-week tenure, the key question is getting lost in the shuffle: Who told Flynn to call Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States? Because I’m convinced Flynn didn’t do it of his own accord. Flynn is a bit player in a much larger story regarding the president’s relationship with the Kremlin, and it’s this story the press needs to focus on.”
