Reverting to his usual level of dishonesty, Trump made 81 false claims last week

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump made just 15 false claims two weeks ago, a holiday week during which he uttered few public remarks.


He gave fact checkers only a brief respite. Back to Washington and back to doing interviews and campaign rallies, Trump made 81 false claims last week. That is tied for the fifth-highest total in the 27 weeks we have counted at CNN.


It was an eclectic batch of dishonesty. Among other things, Trump took unearned credit for both the Ethiopia-Eritrea peace agreement and for the drop in the US cancer death rate, absurdly claimed that NATO "had no money" before his presidency, wrongly denied that his golf excursions cost taxpayers any money, and repeated his usual varied inaccuracies about impeachment, immigration and the nuclear agreement with Iran.

Trump made 27 of the false claims at his campaign rally in Toledo, Ohio. He made 16 more in a Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham. He made six in his speech on National Environmental Policy Act regulations, plus 10 in his exchange with reporters after the speech.

Trump's total of 81 false claims last week was above his average of about 61 per week. Trump is now up to 1,636 false claims since July 8, an average of about nine per day..........................................

1. I always ask this question, never have got an answer.

When he says, "Many people have called me and they are saying, that was the best briefing ever, a beautiful briefing.", or whatever BS he says in the moment, do we count those or just let them slide?

3. I'm always waiting for a brave reporter to call out, "Name one person who told you that."

He'd have a short career, but he'd go down in history alongside the Boy Who Said the Emperor Has No Clothes.

9. Why should he change?

The gop has their perfect president. He is installing all his cronies to destroy the pillars of our society. His largest donors get post in government, or ambassadorships, even when they know nothing about the job. Much like him. He is proof positive that the republicans do not care about this country, only their own bank accounts. tRump is the worst, most ignorant, unqualified president in the history of this country, and the gop back him 100%. They covered for Regan's dementia, and now they are covering for tRumps ignorance. The man is a moron.
