Fact Checking Trump’s Press Conference: Leaks are Real, But News is Fake

During the President’s 75-minute press conference in which Trump used the platform to voice his disdain for the media and reporters, he managed to get some of his facts wrong. He left people baffled by some of his statements like “The leaks are real, but the news is fake.” When questioned about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who resigned Monday, the President confirmed, that leaked information about his administration is “real,” but he said much of the coverage of the leaks is “fake news.” Hmmm…Take a minute to think about that one.


Meanwhile, ABC News counted more than a dozen alternative facts that Trump mentioned during the conference. Like this one for instance when Trump said, “We have made incredible progress. I don’t think there’s ever been a president elected, who in this short period of time has done what we’ve done … Again, I say it, there has never been a presidency that’s done so much in such a short period of time.” Well, according to ABC that’s not exactly true. At this point in his presidency, Trump has signed 12 executive orders vs. 15 executive orders for Obama. Granted, Obama had signed three bills into law, while Trump has signed four. However, one of Trump’s was a necessary rule change for his pick for Secretary of Defense. But one of Obama’s major achievements came on Feb. 17 when he signed his broad economic stimulus law.
