Trump’s Press Conference

Donald Trump made several false and misleading statements in an hour-long press conference — on Bernie Sanders, Vladimir Putin, Hillary Clinton’s emails and more.

Clinton’s Greatest Hits

A compendium of the top false and misleading claims by the Democratic presidential candidate.

Ad Suggests Trump Loves Nuclear War

A TV ad from a Democratic political action committee could leave voters with the false impression that Donald Trump said he “loves” war “including with nukes.” The ad uses two clips back-to-back of Trump speaking at events that were months apart.

Orlando Club Had Armed Security

Donald Trump said there were “no guns on the other side” in the mass shooting in Orlando and there would’ve been fewer deaths “if the bullets were going in the other direction.” But at least one person at the club fired at the shooter.

Pageants and Foreign Policy

Hillary Clinton said that Donald Trump cited hosting the Miss Universe pageant in Russia when “asked about his foreign-policy experience.” That’s not how the exchange went.

Lawyers Group Not ‘Pro-Mexican’

Donald Trump claimed that a federal judge presiding over a civil lawsuit against Trump University is a “member of a club or society very strongly pro-Mexican.” That’s an inaccurate description of a group for Latino lawyers and law students in San Diego.

Obama Oversells U.S. Economy

In a recent speech, President Obama criticized Republicans for making claims about the economy and health care that are “not supported by the facts.” But Obama resorted to some spin of his own.

Trump ‘Wants to Abolish VA’?

Hillary Clinton claimed that she “read” that Donald Trump “said he wants to … abolish the VA.” That’s the opposite of what Trump has said.

What’s Trump’s Position on NATO?

Hillary Clinton went too far when she claimed that Donald Trump said “we should pull out of NATO.” Trump said that he would “certainly look at” pulling the U.S. out of NATO, because it is “obsolete” and “is costing us a fortune.”

Hillary Clinton Wasn’t a ‘Birther’

Donald Trump again has repeated the false claim that Hillary Clinton “started” the so-called “birther” movement against Barack Obama in 2008.
