Now I Get It: Trump’s false and misleading claims
There’s no doubt that previous U.S. presidents haven’t always been truthful. President Bill Clinton lied about his “inappropriate relationship” with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in the mid-1990s. Then, President George W. Bush’s insistence that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction provided a pretext for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. But the amount of false and misleading claims coming from President Trump is unrivaled. So much so that the Washington Post has an entire database devoted to fact-checking Trump’s claims. So just how dishonest has the president been since he’s taken office?
