Recent campaign LIES told by Trump

Recommended Posts

Biden was declared ‘incompetent’ to stand trial in documents case: “He has no clue, like with the documents hoax. How about that? He’s not competent to stand trial, but he’s allowed to be the president.” -- Trump at rally in Rome, Ga., March 9 https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/trump-campaigns-in-georgia-and-responds-to-the-sotu-address


During a congressional hearing on his report Tuesday, Hur was asked if he found that the president was senile and exhibited a decline of cognitive ability. “I did not,” Hur said. “That conclusion does not appear in my report.” --

The United States is a Third World country: “We have a country that a political person uses weaponization against his political opponent never happened here. It happens in other countries, but they’re Third World countries. And in some ways, we’re a Third World country. We’re a Third World country at our borders, and we’re a Third World country at our elections, and we have to stop that.” -- Trump remarks after Super Tuesday, March 5. https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/trump-delivers-remarks-after-dominant-super-tuesday-performance


The United States is an economic powerhouse and its currency, the U.S. dollar, is dominant. But Trump frequently reaches for a dated Cold War-era term used to refer to poor or developing countries. Sometimes, he also calls the United States a “banana republic.” -- Wash Post  Fact Checker. 

Prisons are being emptied around the world to flood U.S. borders: “The prison population all over the world is at the lowest point it’s been in many decades because they’re dumping their prisoners into our country.” -- Trump 
at rally in Richmond.


This claim is an echo of Trump’s notorious comment in his 2015 speech announcing he would run for president — that Mexico was “sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” 
-- Wash Post Fact Checker.

Congo has released murderers into the United States: “Last night they had four from the Congo. Where in the Congo do you live? I wonder what beautiful place do you live in the Congo? ‘We are from prison.’ What did you do? ‘Murder.’ They’re in the United States right now, right? This is what they’re allowing.” 
-- Trump at rally in Richmond. https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/donald-trump-rally-in-richmond


As part of his falsehood on prisons being emptied, Trump often conjures up another bit of fiction — that a conflict-riven country in Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo, is shipping murderers to the United States. Fair says no such decline in Congo’s prison population is shown in the data. Instead, the DRC’s prison population keeps growing.

15 million migrants have entered the United States under Biden: “They’ve let in 15 million people … and I think it’s going to be 18 million by the time we get the worst president in our history out of office.” -- Trump at rally in Richmond. https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/donald-trump-rally-in-richmond


Trump never met a number that he could not double, triple or quadruple. Here’s he manages to take a real number — 4 to 5 million migrants arriving during Biden’s presidency — and increase it threefold. --- 
Wash Post Fact Checker.

The inflation rate under Biden is 50 percent: “But the fact is, under Biden, we have a three-year inflation rate of almost 50 percent. Under me, you had no inflation. You had no inflation.” -- Trump at rally in Rome, Ga.  


Since Biden took office, cumulative inflation is 18.5 percent. Moreover, Trump is wrong when he says there was “no inflation” when he was president. Cumulative inflation during Trump’s presidency was nearly 8 percent. 
-- Wash Post Fact Checker.

Native-born Americans have lost 1 million jobs to immigrants: “In February alone, nearly 1 million jobs held by native-born Americans disappeared. Think of that. You lost a million jobs. Black people, that’s who lost the jobs. Hispanic people, that’s who lost the jobs.” -- 
Trump at rally in Rome, Ga.  https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/trump-campaigns-in-georgia-and-responds-to-the-sotu-address


Here, Trump seizes on a confusing (and exaggerated) number to make a misleading claim. In the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics employment report, it shows the number of native-born workers with jobs fell from 129.8 million in January to 129.3 million in February 2024, for a decline of about 500,000. So Trump doubled the actual figure. Meanwhile, the number of foreign-born workers, meaning people who were not citizens at birth, grew from nearly 30 million to 31 million — an increase of more than 1 million. — Wash Post Fact Checker. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2024/03/14/trump-crazy-new-claims-fact-checked/

Listened to Trump’s Rambling, Unhinged, Vituperative Georgia Rally—and So Should You


I’m sure you had better things to do on Saturday evening than watch Donald Trump rant for nearly two hours to an audience of cheering fans in Rome, Georgia. His speech was rambling, unhinged, vituperative, and oh-so-revealing. In his first rally since effectively clinching the Republican Presidential nomination, Trump made what amounted to his response to Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. It’s hard to imagine a better or more pointed contrast with the vision that, two days earlier, the President had laid out for America.

And yet, like so much about Trump’s 2024 campaign, this insane oration was largely overlooked and under-covered, the flood of lies and B.S. seen as old news from a candidate whose greatest political success has been to acclimate a large swath of the population to his ever more dangerous alternate reality. No wonder Biden, trapped in a real world of real problems that defy easy solutions, is struggling to defeat him.

Trump Says Some Migrants Are ‘Not People’ and Predicts a ‘Blood Bath’ if He Loses


Donald Trump, at an event on Saturday ostensibly meant to boost his preferred candidate in Ohio’s Republican Senate primary race, gave a freewheeling speech in which he used dehumanizing language to describe immigrants, maintained a steady stream of insults and vulgarities and predicted that the United States would never have another election if he did not win in November.

With his general-election matchup against President Biden in clear view, Mr. Trump once more doubled down on the doomsday vision of the country that has animated his third presidential campaign and energized his base during the Republican primary.

The former president opened his speech by praising the people serving sentences in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol. Mr. Trump, who faces criminal charges tied to his efforts to overturn his election loss, called them “hostages” and “unbelievable patriots,” commended their spirit and vowed to help them if elected in November. He also repeated his false claims that the 2020 election was stolen, which have been discredited by a mountain of evidence.

If he did not win this year’s presidential election, Mr. Trump said, “I don’t think you’re going to have another election, or certainly not an election that’s meaningful.”

He asserted, without evidence, that other countries were emptying their prisons of “young people” and sending them across the border. “I don’t know if you call them ‘people,’ in some cases,” he said. “They’re not people, in my opinion.” He later referred to them as “animals.”

Border officials, including some who worked in the Trump administration, have said that most migrants who cross the border are members of vulnerable families fleeing violence and poverty, and available data does not support the idea that migrants are spurring increases in crime.

What If Americans *Can't* Understand the Trump Crazy?


I watched Donald Trump’s nearly two-hour campaign speech in Georgia over the weekend and concluded: When insanity becomes the norm, it ceases to be insane.

As a practical matter, it is impossible for a society to spend a decade listening to an unwell man say crazy, disassociated, garbled words for hours at a time, almost daily, and maintain the position that he is unhinged. At some point, society decides that the man they once regarded as unhinged, simply is.

It’s like sitting in a room that stinks of sulfur. At first the smell is intolerable; but after a while you can’t even notice it if you try. This is more than human nature: It’s how our brains are wired to adapt to environmental conditions.

That’s one of my big worries about the next eight months: That it will be biologically and psychologically impossible for a crucial percentage of voters to perceive what the Republican candidate for president actually is. 

The MAGA CULT has never understood what Trump is cause they believe HIS LIES.
