Donald Trump's 'Art of the Deal' Co-Author Explains Why Trump 'Lies About Anything and Everything Without Shame'
President Donald Trump lies. A lot.
According to fact checkers at the Washington Post, he's made over 12,000 "false statements" in 928 days. He's told flippant lies, like repeatedly claiming his father was born in Germany (he was born in New York), to deeply impactful lies, like saying mothers rampantly conspire with doctors to kill their babies. Seventy percent of Trump's statements on Politifact range from "Mostly False" to "Pants on Fire."
