In the 298 days that Donald Trump has been in office, he’s made 1,628 false or misleading claims, according to a count by the #WashingtonPost’s Fact Checker. That number averages to 5.5 misleading or false statements every day of Trump’s presidency to date. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to the publication, Trump’s most repeated declaration, uttered 60 times, is that the Affordable Care Act is dying when it’s actually expected to remain stable in the future. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trump has also taken credit for the creation of pre-existing programs or business decisions 55 other times. He uttered misleading claims about having the biggest tax cut 40 times, and the completely false claim that the United States is one of the highest-taxed nations 31 times. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to the Fact-Checker’s estimates, if Trump maintains his current pace, he will exceed 2,000 false claims or misstatements in his first year in office.
