Donald Trump has made 20,000 false or misleading claims while in office, according to the Washington Post, which identified a “tsunami of untruths” emanating from the Oval Office.

The paper’s Fact Checker column said Trump hit the milestone on 9 July, a day on which he delivered 62 such claims.

About half of them came in an interview with the Fox News host Sean Hannity, among them a claim to have “tremendous support” in the African American community and the charge that Barack Obama and Joe Biden spied on Trump’s campaign in 2016.

The Post created its database during Trump’s first 100 days in office. Staff have since gone through every statement the president has made at press conferences and rallies, in TV appearances and on social media.

1. tsunami of untruths???

Hey, Washington Post, try printing this.."TRUMP IS A CONGENITAL LIAR"...please permanently delete "untruths, false claims, misleading, misstatements, falsehoods" from your list of favorites..how about an unambiguous statement of fact...TRUMP LIES..and please stop insulting my intelligence with "tsunami of untruths" and "Pinocchios"... Trump hates you guys, all your ass-kissing isn't going to make that narcissistic depraved sociopath love you..and btw, you owe me an apology...you and rags like yours cleaned up that orange piece of garbage and sold him as a viable candidate...you knew what he was but you wanted a horse race...well, you got him elected...happy?...
