The Final Push: Clinton

As the election comes to a close, we provide a sampling of the misleading claims made by Hillary Clinton during speeches this week.

Trump’s Tax Cut Claims

Donald Trump misleadingly touts tax cuts of 30 percent for “working people” or 35 percent for “a middle-class family with two children,” adding that Hillary Clinton “wants to raise your taxes up to the sky.” That distorts both Trump’s and Clinton’s plans.
