Donald Trump distorts the facts when he says “Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away” and “abolish the Second Amendment.” Clinton’s gun violence prevention proposal would impose restrictions, but it does not call for banning all guns.

Donald Trump claimed in an Indiana speech that the U.S. ranks “last in education” and “first in terms of spending per pupil” among 30 countries. He’s wrong on both counts, as measured by federal and international organizations.
Sen. Ted Cruz claimed that he and Sen. Bernie Sanders are “outsiders” who “don’t find our fuel in bundlers and special interests. But rather directly from the people.” But Cruz’s comparison to Sanders is a bit of a stretch.
Sen. Ted Cruz distorted the facts in saying that Washington, D.C., and Chicago “for years” have been “right at the top of murder rates,” and claiming that most “jurisdictions with the worst murder rates” have “the very strictest gun control laws.”
When asked about releasing his “full” federal tax returns, Sen. Bernie Sanders insisted that “we have released them in the past.” But Sanders has released only his 1040 form, a two-page summary of his federal returns, not his full returns.
Hillary Clinton falsely claimed she is “the only candidate” in the presidential campaign “on either side” who has been attacked in advertising funded by “Wall Street financiers and hedge fund managers.”
After a brief hiatus, CNN’s Jake Tapper returns with a fact-checking video on Donald Trump’s false claim that Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign bought the rights to a racy photo of Trump’s wife, Melania, and gave it to a super PAC.
An image that appears in an anti-Donald Trump TV ad inaccurately shows that Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich combined have more delegates than Trump. In fact, Trump has more delegates than both men combined, 739 to 608.
Democrats say the public overwhelmingly support hearings and a vote on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. The polls, however, are not as settled as the Democrats make them out to be.
