Jeb Bush claims that President Obama “believes that America’s leadership and presence in the world is not a force for good.” But we found 19 instances of Obama describing the U.S. as “a force for good,” or something very similar.
Donald Trump says he “heard” that President Obama “is thinking about signing an executive order where he wants to take your guns away,” claiming that he “read it in the papers.” None of the major newspapers in the country has reported that.

Ted Cruz misrepresented the words of the U.S. national intelligence director, claiming that James Clapper “said among those [Syrian] refugees are no doubt a significant number of ISIS terrorists.” Clapper didn’t say that.
Donald Trump says that “the state of Florida had sanctuary cities while Jeb Bush was governor,” and “nobody said anything.” But we could find no evidence that any Florida city or county fit the bill of a sanctuary city at that time, at least not officially.
Donald Trump threatens to sue the conservative Club for Growth if it doesn’t pull its TV ad claiming he “supports higher taxes.” The group says it is merely exposing Trump’s “very liberal” record. Who is right?
