Trump made 7 times more “false or misleading” claims than Biden in first 100 days

Former President Donald Trump made more than seven times as many “false and misleading” claims in his first 100 days in the White House as President Joe Biden, according to the Washington Post fact-checker.

a analysis of every speech, statement, tweet and interview made by the two presidents revealed that Trump made 511 false or misleading claims in his first 100 days, while Biden made 67 on Monday or Day 96.

One of Biden’s two most egregious false or misleading claims, which earned the president a four Pinocchio rating from the Post, was his declaration last month that Georgia shortened its voting hours to end at 5 p.m. Georgia has not done so, but the recently passed state electoral law makes it more difficult to vote by post, reduces the number of drop boxes for ballots distributing food and water to people in line for vote, among other changes.

The other statement of the four Pinocchio was that federal contracts “awarded directly to foreign companies” increased by 30% under Trump. Post fact-check team could not verify this number.

“After four years of a presidency that inundated Americans with a flood of false and misleading claims, the Joe Biden era offered a return to a more typical pattern regarding a commander-in-chief and his relationship with him. the facts – one that exhibits frequent rotation and obfuscation or exaggeration, along with the occasional duck, ”the Post’s fact-checking team said.
