President Trump is a walking meme and here are some claims he’s made that makes him meme-worthy
When Donald Trump was a presidential candidate, he earned 59 Four-Pinocchio ratings, for making false claims. And now that he’s president, he’s carrying out things in a similar fashion, by making dubios, misleading or false statements. Even after some of these claims get called out for being an outright lie after being fact checked, he repeats it. In fact, Trump’s claims are going for an all time high, so here are some of the best ones.
The most repeated
Trump has taken credit (25 times to be exact) for projects involving Ford, GM, Fiat Chrysler among other companies that were announced long before he was elected.
He claimed a total of 15 times that he saved $725 million on an order of F-35 airplanes but the Pentagon itself had announced cost reductions of around $600 million on F-35s before Trump met with Lockheed Martin’s chief executive. Trump kept increasing the amount of money he “saved” a few millions at a time.
Trump claimed that “Obamacare is dead, it is gone,” but Congressional Budget Office stated that the Affordable Care Act is not imploding and is expected to remain stable for the foreseeable future.
Let’s flash forward to the pandemic. Trump has played down the severity of the virus, and has successfully influenced citizens who aren’t intellectually blessed. The funniest claim out of all this was, “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”
Then later he said, that once April, comes it will “miraculously go away” as it will be getting warmer. Trump had predicted it’s demise over and over and he’s not one to be deterred if his predictions went wrong.
