Top 10 Lies President Donald Trump Has Told Since Taking Office


The Contenders: Page 2

21 About the chaos caused by his executive order, "Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage, protesters and the tears of Senator Schumer."

Protesters did not affect the arrival of planes to the airports and did not impact the customs process. The Delta outage did not happen until 2 days after the order. Yet another lie in a feeble attempt to put the blame on others. - covenste

The POINT was, that the ONLY problems at airports were caused by actors and events OTHER THAN the temporary ban. Are you really this dishonest?

22 "Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave'service' in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!"

Cuomo literally brought up the topic in the very first question of the interview. Can we please get some intern to fact check these Tweets before they go out? This is beyond embarrassing. - covenste

23 "We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban; we had a bad court."

A very smooth rollout? But what about the "big problems at airports" Trump Tweeted about? - covenste

24 "As you know, I approved two pipelines that were stuck in limbo forever. I don’t even think it was controversial. You know, I approved them."

He has approved the Dakota Access pipeline. As of the time he said the quote, the Keystone XL from Alberta had not been approved. - covenste

25 "Because we shouldn’t have been in Iraq but we shouldn’t have gotten out the way we got out. It created a vacuum, ISIS was formed."

The U.S. withdrew troops from Iraq in 2011. The Islamic State existed in 2006 while George Bush was President. The U.S. leaving Iraq did not lead to the formation of ISIS. - covenste

26 "The failing @nytimes was forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win."

Wasn't "forced" to and didn't. - covenste

27 "I have already saved more than $700 million when I got involved in the negotiation on the F-35. You know about that."

Nope. The price cut was already in the works. Trump is just trying to take credit. - covenste

28 "I’ve been against the war in Iraq from the beginning."

He said it again on February 5th, so it counts. - covenste

29 "'Trump taps first woman to CIA second in command'."

Trump republished the incorrect headline on Twitter so he gets credit. Obama was actually the first to do so. - covenste

30 "Smart! 'Kuwait issues its own Trump-esque visa ban for five Muslim-majority countries.'"

No, they didn't. - covenste

31 "Obama said that they were going to take probably well over 1,000 illegal immigrants who were in prisons, and they were going to bring them and take them into this country. And I just said, ‘Why?’…1,250. It could be 2,000, it could be more"
32 "Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia."

1,250 is not "thousands". Refugees the president agrees to let into the nation are not "illegal immigrants". - covenste

33 "Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the U.S. came along and gave it a lifeline in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion."

Iran wasn't on its last legs and it wasn't $150 billion. - covenste

34 "I don’t watch CNN."

His Tweeting about CNN programming indicates otherwise. See Chris Cuomo. - covenste

35 "Thr coverage about me in the @nytimes and the @washingtonpost gas been so false and angry that the times actually apologized to its dwindling subscribers and readers."

No apology was made and The Times subscriber base added an average of 100,000 subscribers a month each of the last three months of 2016.

(FYI the typos in the quote are Trump's) - covenste

36 "The Cuban-Americans - I got 84 percent of that vote, and they voted in big numbers."

He got a little more than 50%. - covenste

37 "And a wall protects. All you have to do is ask Israel. They were having a total disaster coming across and they had a wall. It’s 99.9 percent stoppage."

That 99.9 statistic has no basis in reality. - covenste

38 "I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!"
39 "When WikiLeaks came out... never heard of WikiLeaks, never heard of it."

Trump described WikiLeaks as "disgraceful" in a 2010 interview.

40 "Chris Wallace, look back during the Army-Navy football game, I did his show that morning. It had 9.2 million people. It’s the highest they’ve ever had."

It was not the highest ever for the show and it was 6.9 million fewer than Trump claims.
