Trump Generalised 15 False Claims A Day in 2018

US President Donald Trump’s year of lies, wrong statements and deceptive claims begins with a sequence of morning tweets.

Over a couple of hours on 2nd January, Trump false claims about three of his popular targets -Iran, The New York Times and Hillary Clinton. He also took credit for the “ best and safest year on record” for commercial aviation, even though there had been no business plane crashes in the United States since 2009 and, in any case, the President has small to do with confirming the safety of commercial aviation.

The random attacking of tweets was the start of a year of revolutionary duplicity during which Trump became increasingly released the mooring from the truth. While 2018 started, the President had made 1,989 false and deceptive claims, according to The Washington Post’s Fact Checker’s database, which tracks every suspect statement produced by the president. At the end of the year, Trump had assembled more than 7,600 lies during his presidency – by average more than 15 incorrect claims a day during 2018, almost triple the rate from the year before.

Even as fact-free statements of Trump multiplied, there is developing evidence that his proposition is failing.

Fewer than 3 in 10 Americans trust many of his most-ordinary deceptive statements, according to a Fact checker poll from earlier this month. Only among a pool of solid approvers of Trump about 1 in 6 adults in the survey – did immense predominance receive several, though all of his deceptive as true.
