Donald Trump Falsely Claimed Doctors Rushed Out of Surgeries to Greet Him During Visit
Type: ExaggerationsAug 21 2019 Severity: About: Mass Shootings
Donald Trump bragged that doctors rushed out of surgeries to greet him as he was visiting victims of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas, a claim that spokespeople at both hospitals quickly refuted. Trump boasted that “doctors were coming out of the operating rooms. There were hundreds and hundreds of people all over the floor. You couldn’t even walk on it.” However, a spokesperson at the hospital victims of the El Paso shooting were taken to said “at no time did, or would, physicians or staff leave active operating rooms during the presidential visit." A spokesman at a hospital in Dayton released a similar statement.
