Donald Trump Claimed He'd Won the Electoral College "By A Lot"
Type: ExaggerationsSep 06 2018 Severity:
President Trump attended a rally to support Matt Rosendale, a candidate for the Montana Senate. Later in the speech, President Trump exaggerated to the crowd about his electoral college win, and how he had "won by a lot," which is misleading because Trump narrowly won the electoral college. A swing of less than 50,000 votes would have cost him the election.
