Tell No Lies

Defense of our democracy is essential.



On every one of his first 40 days in office, Trump made false statements in public. They ranged from assertions that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally, causing him to lose the popular vote, to claiming that the United States has a $17 billion trade deficit with Canada. (We had an $8.1 billion dollar trade surplus with Canada in 2016.)

The New York Times has compiled a list of his lies and provided fact checking sources.

This is a great service to the public.  I encourage you to read the list.
I, along with the Moyers Report think the Times should receive a Pulitzer Prize for this public service.
