“Nå I try. To tell the truth, he told ABC’s Jon Karl before a campaign rally in Florida.

“I always want to tell the truth. When I can, I tell the truth. And sometimes it turns out to be where something happens that’s something or there’s a change, but I always like to be truthful. “

The Washington Post, which has made a project of tracking the president’s claims that they regard false, said in September dat Trump had opgeheven 5.000 verkeerde of misleidende uitspraken tijdens zijn bijna twee jaar in office. Blandt presidentens tidligste foray i verdenens politik var hans vokiferøse støtte til den såkaldte birther-konspirasjon, som påstod, uden bevis, at tidligere president Barack Obama var ineligible til at være president fordi han ikke var født en naturaliseret U.S. citizen.

Trump has continued to be accused of spreading misinformation as the midterm elections come to a close, especially on the issue of immigration. The White House has sought to use anti-immigrant rhetoric to drive Trump’s base of conservative voters to the polls, pointing to a caravan or asylum-seeking migrants making its way through southern Mexico and floating a longshot executive order to end the practice of birthright citizenship .

Trump in recent days has spread the unfounded conspiracy theory that the caravan has received financial support from Democrats, a claim that has taken root in right-wing circles. Trump has referred to the caravan as an “invasion” and frequently implores the migrants to “turn back” and enter the U.S. “Legally” despite seeking asylum at a U.S. port of entry, which the migrants say they plan to do, is legal.

He has claimed without evidence that the caravan, comprised largely of Central American migrants, includes “thugs” and “gang members.” He also told his Twitter followers that the caravan contained “unknown Middle Easterners,” a claim he later admitted he had no proof to support.

He took issue in his interview with Karl about reported size estimates of the caravan, which have varied widely from a Trump’s former press secretary, Sean Spicer, famously insisted that the crowd at the Trump’s former press secretary, Sean Spicer, said he was “pretty good at estimating crowd sizes,” a point he has long fixated on his own rallies and events. President’s 2017 inauguration was the biggest in history, despite clear photographic evidence to the contrary, reportedly at Trump’s demand.

“You have caravans coming up that look a lot bigger than it’s reported , “He said.” I’m pretty good at estimating crowd size. And I’ll tell you they look a lot bigger than people would think. “

In an interview released Tuesday in which Trump announced his intention to end the citizenship guarantee many say is settled law as part of the 14th Amendment, the president falsely claimed that the US is the only country in the world with such a guarantee.

When confronted with the fact that more than 30 countries also confer birthright citizenship – which in the U.S. means that a child born on U.S. Trump said his “only country” remark was “what I was told,” according to Karl.
