This week, CNN’s Jake Tapper explains why President Donald Trump was wrong to take credit for Toyota’s plan to invest over $1 billion in its largest manufacturing plant in Kentucky.

This “Campaign Watch” video from FactCheck.org’s sister website, FlackCheck.org, covers some claims made by Sen. Rand Paul that we fact-checked before and after he made his announcement to run for president.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is now the second major Republican candidate to officially declare he will run for president. We present a sampling of some past claims from Paul that we have reviewed on our site.
Sen. Paul falsely claimed that a tax credit program for low-income workers has a “fraud rate” of 25 percent and costs taxpayers “$20 billion to $30 billion.” Paul cited a report by the Government Accountability Office, but that’s not what the report said.
Thought you’d seen it all this political season? An ad from Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes criticizes Sen. Mitch McConnell for his vote on a bill that President Obama praised, and even thanked McConnell by name for supporting.
Sen. Mitch McConnell claims in a TV ad to have “shocking” video evidence from Alison Lundergan Grimes’ “own staff” to prove “Grimes is lying” about her support for coal. He doesn’t.
In an interesting twist, Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell is under fire from his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, for “personally” taking “$600,000 from anti-coal groups.” But that’s a huge stretch.
