Trump fact check: Almost every big claim he made to Congress was false

Donald Trump fact check: Almost every big claim he made in his Joint Address to Congress was false

Much of the speech was focused on rhetoric and policy commitments, but it included a huge range of false claims

TRUMP: "According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America's taxpayers many billions of dollars a year."

THE FACTS: That's not exactly what that report says. It says immigrants "contribute to government finances by paying taxes and add expenditures by consuming public services."

TRUMP: "We've saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price" of the F-35 jet fighter.

THE FACTS: The cost savings he persists in bragging about were secured in full or large part before he became president.

TRUMP: "We will provide massive tax relief for the middle class."

THE FACTS: Trump has provided little detail on how this would happen. Independent analyses of his campaign's tax proposals found that most of the benefits would flow to the wealthiest families.

1. Fact checking him was like catching tennis balls in the middle of a tornado

He lied practically every time he opened his mouth.

Who the fuck lies about everything?
