Exaggerations from President Trump?


Exaggerations from Trump in Saudi Arabia

Exaggerations from President Trump, during his speech in Saudi Arabia, raised some eyebrows. One such extension of words involved the armed forces. He claimed to have accomplished record spending on the armed forces. The exaggeration is the fact that Congress has not passed a budget that reflects his plans and promises. The president is scheduled to release a detailed budget proposal tomorrow to follow up on his outline budget before. Of course, nothing is achieved until and unless Congress passes something.

Exaggeration of Facts


Trump told his audience that we have created almost a million new jobs in just a few months…and made record investments in our military. The number of jobs created is questionable and he is not proposing a record increase in military spending – not to mention there is not yet a budget.

Trump told the Saudi Arabians, “I actually thought when I made that decision (to fire FBI Director James Comey) and I also got a very, very strong recommendation, as you know, from the deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.” The fact is the recommendation he cites came after Trump decided to fire Comey, according to Rosenstein and to Trump’s own previous statement taking sole ownership of the decision.

President Trump also told his audience, “Even my enemies have said there is no collusion.” The fact is that Democrats have not absolved Trump on whether his campaign and Russian officials coordinated efforts last year to cause disadvantage to Hillary Clinton. Several have said they have not seen evidence of collusion, but that’s not to say they are satisfied it did not happen.

Trump told the audience about the MS-13 gang presence in the US. He said, “A horrible, horrible large group of gangs that have been let into our country over a fairly short period of time…They’ve literally taken over towns and cities of the United States.” However, it is not accurate that the gang was “let into” the US. The gang actually started in Los Angeles according to a fact sheet from Trump’s own Justice Department and “spread quickly across the country.” It did not start just recently but in the 1980’s.

So far it appears that his ‘exaggerations’ have not caused any problems.
