Donald Trump often says things that are untrue, but they fire up the faithful

Donald Trump often says things that are untrue, but they fire up the faithful

Donald Trump’s campaign trail commentary flows seamlessly but is often vague on specifics and even facts.

He says he saw “thousands of people” cheering in New Jersey as the World Trade Center towers collapsed in the Sept. 11 attacks. Not true, say local law enforcement and elected officials.

He is open to shuttering mosques, saying there’s “absolutely no choice.” But the 1st Amendment protects the free exercise of religion.

And he has assailed the federal government for accepting “250,000” Syrian refugees. The Obama administration has agreed to allow in no more than 10,000 this fiscal year.
