Trump: The Lie of the year!

PolitiFact has been documenting Trump’s statements on their Truth-O-Meter, where they’ve rated 76 percent of them Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire, out of 77 statements checked. No other politician has as many statements rated so far down on the dial!

A few examples:
"I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down," he said at a Nov. 21 rally in Birmingham, Ala. "And I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering."

"The Mexican government ... they send the bad ones over."

"Whites killed by whites — 16%. Whites killed by blacks — 81%," said an image he shared on Twitter.   Most people are killed by someone they know, and someone of the same race.   The correct number for whites killed by whites was 82 percent in 2014, while the number of whites killed by blacks was 15 percent.

Get more of his lies at Politifact!
