Over the next two years, President Trump’s lies only increased in number. As of August 5, 2019, The Washington Post had fact checked President Trump for 928 days and claimed he made 12,019 false or misleading claims over that time. Even if this number is exaggerated, let’s face it – the Leader of the Free World has a big problem with the truth.
As part of a Fact Checker Poll also conducted by The Washington Post from November 30 through December 10, 2018, it was noted that 91% of participants said it was Extremely (63%) or Very (28%) important to them that presidential candidates be honest.
It is critical that the American people trust their President to be honest with them. The same holds true for our foreign allies. How can you reach critical national security and trade agreements with someone who will lie to your face?
Mr. Trump must not be allowed to win a second term. It is incumbent upon all thoughtful citizens (Democrats and Republicans) to spread the word. Forget the fact that he supports authoritarian (and murdering) leaders of Russia, North Korea and Saudi Arabia and befriends them while publicly discounting his own intelligence agency reports on their behavior. Forget the attacks on NATO and our allies in Western Europe, Canada and Mexico. Forget the imposition of tariffs which are harming our economy, our withdrawal from an agreement with Western Europe and Iran to slow the development of nuclear weapons, and our withdrawal from the Paris Climate Change Accords. Forget Trump’s attacks on immigrants and his desire to change the credo on the Statue of Liberty. Forget his denial of Climate Change despite his complete lack of knowledge in this area. Forget his unnecessary tax cut which will add significantly to our deficit.
Our President is a LIAR, and for that reason alone he should be precluded from holding the highest office in the land. Please help us spread the word.
