Donald Trump bragged to attendees attending a campaign rally for Senate candidate Roy Moore that he has rolled back more regulations than former President Abraham Lincoln. While that may be technically true, he disregarded the fact that nineteenth century America had very little regulations and that President Lincoln was quite busy leading the Union in the Civil War.

I said, you mean I beat Abraham Lincoln [in the number of regulations I rolled back]? That's pretty good for 10 months.
