Trump dumps more lies on public

The Hill - President Trump’s claim this week that he has signed more bills than any other first-year president was rated as "false" by Politifact on Friday, which pointed out Trump actually ranks last among modern commanders in chief when it comes to legislation.

"You know, one of the things that people don’t understand — we have signed more legislation than anybody. We broke the record of Harry Truman,” Trump said at a firehouse in West Palm Beach, Fla., on Wednesday.

However, the fact-checking website found that Trump has in fact signed the least amount of legislation during his first calendar year in office compared to every other post-World War II president. The website gave Trump’s statement a ranking of “false.”
