Falsehoods During the Month Leading Up To Mid-term Election

According to the reporting of Daniel Dale of the Toronto-Star, President Trump told 815 false claims in his rallies leading up to the mid-term election.  Daniel Dale fact checked every claim that President Trump made during the 30 days prior to the election and showed that the President broke previous records for any one month. 


Trump make 664 false claims in October which was double his previous record for a calendar month; April was 320.  Trump averaged 26.3 lies per day in the month leading up to the midterms, while before that he was averaging 2.9 per day.  To get a update weekly on the president’s lie or false claims, go to or the Star Online at Facebook.


How could we have elected a president whose most important achievement is the number of false claims or lies he tells every day?  I just don’t understand this when the person he was running against was labelled many times as the most intelligent person to ever run for the presidency of the United States.  


I only hope the United States has learned a lesson and does better during the next presidential election scheduled in November of 2020.  Perhaps we each should do our own fact checking on what the candidate who will be running against Trump is saying.  That would be easier than trying to fact check all of Trump’s falsehoods.
