The Trump Lies In Second President Debate


  1. Trump stated, “In San Bernardino, many people saw the bombs all over the apartment of the 2 people who killed 14 and wounded many, many people….Muslims have to report the problems when they see them”. TRUTH (Nobody saw bombs in the house of the terrorists.) 
  1. Trump said, “I’ve gotten to see some of the most vicious commercials I have even seen of Michelle Obama talking about you, Hillary. TRUTH (There are no Michelle Obama attack ads against Clinton.) 
  1. Trump said, “We have the slowest growth since 1929.” TRUTH (The economy is growing. According to CNBC, it shrank in 8 individual years since 1930.) 
  1. Trump said that “ICE just endorsed me. They’ve never endorsed a president candidate. TRUTH (Trump was not endorsed by Immigration and Customs Enforcements, a branch of the federal government but by a union of their employees.) 
  1. Trump said, “She is raising everybody’s taxes, massively.” TRUTH (Clinton’s tax hikes are for very wealthy people. Says the Tax Policy Center: “Nearly all of (Clinton’s) tax increases would fall on the top 1 per cent; the bottom 95 percent of taxpayers would see little or no change in their taxes. Trumps tax plan would add to the debt 3 trillion dollar and only cuts taxes for the 1% basically trickled down economics”) 
  1. Trump accused Clinton of laughing at a 12-year-old rape victim: “Her client she represented got him off and she’s seen laughing at the girl who was raped.” TRUTH (Clinton laughed at various points of a 1980s interview about the case – but never at the victim. For example, she said that her accused client has passed a polygraph lie test and she added, with a laugh, “which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs.”) 
  1. Trump said of the “birther” controversy: “You know very well, your campaign Sidney Blumenthal…he’s the one that got this started along with your campaign manager and they were on television just two weeks ago, she was, saying exactly that.” TRUTH (There is no evidence that Blumenthal or Clinton’s campaign manager started the conspiracy theory that Trump promoted for years; they did not support Trump’s assertion in TV.) 
  1. Trump said, “She wants to go to a single-payer plan, which would be a disaster. Somewhat similar to Canada,” TRUTH (Clinton is not calling for a single-payer system like Canada’s; she wants to add a “public option to the current system, but she would not transform the system.) 
  1. Trump said Bill Clinton “paid an $850,000 fine to one of the woman, Paula Jones who is also here tonight.” TRUTH (Clinton paid a $25,000 fine to Arkansas authorities, but his $850,000 to Jones was a settlement, not fine.) 
  1. Trump said “Hundreds of thousands of people coming in from Syria when we know nothing about them.” TRUTH (The U.S. has accepted about 12,500 Syrian refugees. The refugees are subjected to an extensive vetting process.) 
  1. Trump said, “Last year, we had, almost $800 billion trade deficit. Other words, trading with other countries.  We had an $800 billion deficit.” TRUTH (The trade deficit last year was $532 billion.  It was $746 billion when trade in services, at which the U.S. excels, is excluded from the count.)
