It is no surprise to most people that President Donald Trump has issues with the truth. Multiple organizations track the lies, half-truths, inaccurate statements and misleading information Trump shares on Twitter and in his dealings with the press.
But according to the man himself, President Donald Trump is a champion of the truth.
In an ABC News interview, Trump told George Stephanopoulos the reason he dislikes polls showing him losing in the 2020 presidential election is because they are "fake news" and not true.
Stephanopoulos asked the President, regarding the poll results:
"Why does it bother you so much?"
"Because it’s untrue. I like the truth. You know, I’m actually a very honest guy."
Watch the exchange here.
People were quick to refute the President's claim.
People were in agreement that Trump's dishonesty is a rampant and consistent pattern.
In addition to The Washington Post fact checker that tracks President Trump's lack of honesty, the Toronto Star also keeps tabs on Trump's less than honest statements. CNN is also tracking the statements that can be proven wrong.
A very honest guy appears to be the latest less than honest claim from President Trump.
