Another Spanky Trump LIE:

Size/Timing Military Pay Increases

December 27, 2018

 

"During a holiday visit to troops stationed in Iraq, President Donald Trump bragged that he had secured them not only their first pay raise in over a decade, but "one of the biggest" ever.

 

This is inaccurate and not the first time Trump has made false claims about annual military raises.

 

We fact-checked a similar claim from Trump in May, when he told military mothers and spouses at a White House event that he signed a bill to give service members a raise for the "first time in 10 years." We rated it Pants on Fire.

 

In reality, service members have received pay raises every year for more than three decades. The 2019 military pay increase of 2.6 percent is the largest in nine years, but it is not the "more than 10 percent" that Trump mentioned."

"President Trump* has inherited an economy that set a record Friday with 77 consecutive months of job growth, or, as he put it, a mess.”

The bad news for Trump is that there isnt much he can do to speed this up.

 

Infrastructure spending would certainly help, but that's reportedly been pushed off for at least a year, and, given Republican priorities, might not happen at all. Tax cuts for the rich, meanwhile, don’t have much bang for the buck, stimulative-wise.

 

Other than that, it’s not an exaggeration to say that the extent of his economic policymaking has been taking credit for business decisions that companies had already made, in some cases years ago. That might get a lot of retweets, but it wont create any jobs.

 

The good news for Trump, though, is that there isnt much he can do to slow this down, either. The economy has its own momentum, and it’s hard to see what could knock it off.

 

All Trump has to do is nothing....which even an administration as dysfunctional as his might be able to do."

Spanky Trumps Fantastical Human-Trafficking Lies

February 7, 2018

 

"In making the case for a wall along the southern border, President Trump has increasingly drawn attention to the scourge of human trafficking. This is a serious issue, but one (like many underground crimes) that often is plagued by hyped statistics and fuzzy data.

 

The president is falling into the same trap, making statements that simply are not true or are unsupported by the data. He says that human trafficking by airplane is almost impossible,” that there is an invasion of our country by human traffickers,” and that thousands of young girls and women are smuggled across the border for prostitution. None of these statements are correct."

Fact-checking Spanky Trumps

2019 State Of The Union Address

February 6, 2019

 

"Spanky Trump’s State of the Union speech once again was chock-full of stretched facts and dubious figures. Many of these claims have been fact-checked repeatedly, yet the president persists in using them. Here, in the order in which he made them, are nearly 30 statements by the president."

Spanky Trump Mischaracterized Late-TermAbortion Bills

February 6, 2019

 

"On Tuesday, the president of the United States delivered his annual State of the Union (SOTU) address, touching upon a number of contentious issues and recent events. Among the subjects he broached were reproductive rights, at which point Spanky Trump mischaracterized "late-term" abortion bills that have been passed or debated in two different states in the last two weeks.

 

Trump's comments suggested that women take the decision to undergo a third trimester abortion lightly. In fact, such abortions are rare. They are typically performed in extreme circumstances, like when a woman's health or life is at risk, or when there is a severe fetal abnormality. And neither the RHA nor Virginia's proposed bill allowed for them to take place on a purely elective basis."

Spanky Trump; Creating Jobs For "The Blacks"

March 26, 2019

 

"In tweets and interviews, speeches and campaign rallies, Trump often takes credit for a decline in the unemployment rate for African Americans. It’s a well-worn talking point that appears dozens of times in our database of Trump’s false or misleading statements.

 

Regardless of whether the black unemployment rate goes up or down in a given month, the president celebrates it as the “lowest in history” or lowest on record.

 

That was accurate in May 2018, when the rate declined to 5.9 percent, its lowest level since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began to report it in 1972. Fast-forward to February 2019, and the unemployment rate for African Americans had jumped back to 7 percent, erasing all the gains it had made over the previous year.

 

Yet, Trump continues to talk about it as the lowest rate in history. What gives?"

Trumps Great Lakes Whoppers!!!

March 29, 2019

Quote

Trump, March 28: I support the Great Lakes. Always have. They’re beautiful. They’re big. Very deep. Record deepness, right? And I’m going to get, in honor of my friends, full funding of $300 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which youve been trying to get for over 30 years. So we’ll get it done. It’s time. It’s time. You’ve been trying to get it over 30 years. I would say it’s time, right?

 

"Trumps announcement was an about-face from the proposed 2020 budget he released just over two weeks ago, and which called for slashing the Great Lakes restoration budget by 90 percent. It was the third year in a row the president’s budget has proposed gutting federal funding for the program. To date, Congress has ignored those proposed cuts.

 

Trump is also wrong about his geography. While the Great Lakes are indeed big, they’re not exceptionally deep."
