Trump Admin Lies To Prolong Manufactured Crisis At The Border

Trump shut down the government over a manufactured crisis at the border. The Trump administration has continued to lie and spread misleading data to try and justify why they are keeping hundreds of thousands of workers from getting their paychecks.


Sarah Sanders was fact checked on Fox News Sunday for citing misleading data to falsely claim that terrorists are crossing the southern border.


Sarah Sanders: “We know that roughly nearly 4,000 known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally, and we know that our most vulnerable point of entry is southern border.”


Fox News’ Chris Wallace: “But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah, they’re coming and they’re being stopped at airports.”


The Trump administration has repeatedly lied and cited misleading information to continue Trump’s manufactured crisis.


Washington Post: “The numbers they are citing in televised remarks and submitting in writing to members of Congress are being spun pretty heavily.”


Washington Post: “Once again, Trump mangles an official statistic.”


AP FACT CHECK: “Trump’s false claim about drug smuggling”


CNN: “This number is highly misleading and fits a pattern of statements by the administration that have sought to tie immigration on the US-Mexico border to Islamic terror.”


CNN: “The way this number is presented appears to be misleading.”
