Donald Trump Lies Every Five Minutes During Speeches And Press Conferences (VIDEO)
Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump said that he’s a truthful man “maybe to a fault” in a campaign rally in North Carolina last week. That of course is just one of the many lies he’s told to his fanatic supporters over the course of the campaign.
Politico Magazine fact-checked 4.6 hours of stump speeches and press conferences, from a rally in Concord, N.C., on Monday to a rally on Friday in St. Louis and discovered more than five dozen statements deemed mischaracterizations, exaggerations, or simply false. Basically, Trump lies every five minutes on average.
Trump lies include:
“$500 billion a year trade deficit with China” – It’s actually $366 billion.
“You have Japan, where the cars come in by the hundreds of thousands, they pour off the boats. … [W]e send them like nothing. We send them nothing, by comparison, nothing.” – The U.S. exported $62 billion worth of goods to Japan in 2015.
“We’re winning every poll with the Hispanics.” – A Washington Post-Univision poll in February found that 8 in 10 registered Hispanic voters viewed Trump unfavorably.
“It’s the largest winery on the East Coast. I own it 100 percent. No mortgage. No debt. You can all check. You have to go check the records, folks. In fact, the press, I’m asking you, please check.” – Trump Winery in Charlottesville is not the largest vineyard or winery on the East Coast, according to the National Association of American Wineries. The winery’s own website denies that Trump owns it. “Trump Winery is a registered trade name of Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC, which is not owned, managed or affiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates.”
