    I thought it was the weather? Anyway, interesting because the Live Free or Die State has plenty of deplorables, who I’m sure would have attended sans masks, Murica and freedom and all.

    He actually looks cool in a mask. He should be rather comfortable wearing a mask considering he's such thief. He needs to set an example for the country instead of how he thinks he looks wearing one.

    How anyone would vote for Team Trump Treason is beyond me. But keep listening to AM radio, particularly Clear Channel. And what's 132,000+ dead Americans?

    It took President Trump 827 days to top 10,000 false and misleading claims in The Fact Checker’s database, an average of 12 claims a day.

    But on July 9, just 440 days later, the president crossed the 20,000 mark — an average of 23 claims a day over a 14-month period, which included the events leading up to Trump’s impeachment trial, the worldwide pandemic that crashed the economy and the eruption of protests over the death of George Floyd in police custody.

    The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a whole new genre of Trump’s falsehoods. The category in just a few months has reached nearly 1,000 claims, more than his tax claims combined. Trump’s false or misleading claims about the impeachment investigation — and the events surrounding it — contributed almost 1,200 entries to the database.

    The notion that Trump would exceed 20,000 claims before he finished his term appeared ludicrous when The Fact Checker started this project during the president’s first 100 days in office. In that time, Trump averaged fewer than five claims a day, which would have added up to about 7,000 claims in a four-year presidential term. But the tsunami of untruths just keeps looming larger and larger.

    As of July 9, the tally in our database stands at 20,055 claims in 1,267 days.

    Just as when Trump crossed the 10,000 threshold, an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News helped Trump breach the 20,000 mark. Trump racked up 62 claims on July 9, about half of which came during the Hannity interview: Trump’s statements cover a substantial range of his bogus attacks, conspiracy theories, boasts and inaccurate information:

    — Former president Barack Obama “did not want” to give surplus military equipment to police. Obama scaled back the program but still allowed specialized firearms, manned and unmanned aircraft, explosives and riot gear.

    — Trump has “tremendous support” in the African American community. No polling shows this.

    — Trump “insisted” the National Guard be used in Minneapolis to quell disturbances and Seattle officials “knew” he was ready to act with force if the city did not shut down protests. Local officials say neither claim is true; they acted on their own.

    — The United States has a “record” for coronavirus testing, and China has not tested as many people as the United States. The United States still lags several major countries in terms of tests per million people, the best metric for comparison. The United States has a higher per capita testing rate than China, but China in June said it had tested 90 million people — at the time, three times as many as the United States.

    — Obama and former vice president Joe Biden “spied” on his campaign and “knew everything that was going on.” Trump has made allegations of Obama spying since 2017, based on little or no evidence.

    — The jury forewoman in the Roger Stone trial was “disgraceful.” The judge in the case rejected claims of bias. Tomeka Hart’s political leanings and activities were clearly known during the jury selection process, and not even Stone’s legal team tried to strike her from the jury pool.

    — Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, was placed in “solitary confinement,” while Al Capone “was never in solitary confinement.” Manafort was in a “private, self-contained living unit” that was larger than other units, which included a bathroom, shower, telephone and laptop access, according to court records. Capone was eventually sent to the infamous Alcatraz prison, where he was stabbed and got into fights and, according to some reports, ended up in solitary confinement as his brain deteriorated from untreated syphilis.

    — “We’re doing record numbers on the border.” In 2020, no records have been set, and border apprehensions spiked sharply in June.

    — “We’ve rebuilt the military, 2.5 trillion dollars.” Trump frequently suggests this money is all for new equipment, but he’s just adding together three years of budgets, none of which is a record.

    So far during his presidency, Trump’s most repeated claim — 360 times — is that the U.S. economy today is the best in history. He began making this claim in June 2018, and it quickly became one of his favorites. He’s been forced to adapt for the tough economic times, and doing so has made it even more fantastic. Whereas he used to say it was the best economy in U.S. history, he now often recalls that he achieved “the best economy in the history of the world.”

    That’s not true. The president once could brag about the state of the economy, but he ran into trouble when he made a play for the history books. By just about any important measure, the pre-coronavirus economy was not doing as well as it did under Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson or Bill Clinton — or Ulysses S. Grant. Moreover, the economy was already beginning to hit the head winds caused by Trump’s trade wars, with the manufacturing sector in an apparent recession.

    Trump has repeated this “best economy” claim more than 100 times just since the coronavirus emerged in China and sent the economy into a tailspin, robbing Trump of what he had expected would be his top sales pitch for reelection.

    Trump’s second-most repeated claim — 261 times — is that his border wall is being built. Congress balked at funding the concrete barrier he envisioned, so the project evolved into the replacement of smaller, older barriers with steel bollard fencing. (Only three miles of the barrier is on land that previously did not have a barrier.) The Washington Post has reported that the bollard fencing is easily breached, with smugglers sawing through it, despite Trump’s claims that it is impossible to get past. Nevertheless, the project has diverted billions in military and counternarcotics funding to become one of the largest infrastructure projects in U.S. history, seizing private land, cutting off wildlife corridors and disrupting Native American cultural sites.

    Trump has falsely said 210 times that he passed the biggest tax cut in history. Even before his tax cut was crafted, he promised it would be the biggest in U.S. history — bigger than President Ronald Reagan’s in 1981. Reagan’s tax cut amounted to 2.9 percent of the gross domestic product, and none of the proposals under consideration came close to that level. Yet Trump persisted in this fiction even when the tax cut was eventually crafted to be the equivalent of 0.9 percent of GDP, making it the eighth-largest tax cut in 100 years. This continues to be an all-purpose applause line at the president’s rallies.

    Trump’s penchant for repeating false claims is demonstrated by the fact that the Fact Checker database has recorded nearly 500 instances in which he has repeated a variation of the same claim at least three times.

    The Fact Checker also tracks Three- or Four-Pinocchio claims that Trump has said at least 20 times, earning him a Bottomless Pinocchio. There are now 40 entries, with the most recent addition being his false claim that he has spent $2.5 trillion on new military equipment.

    The award-winning database website, created by graphics reporter Leslie Shapiro, has an extremely fast search engine that will quickly locate suspect statements the president has made. We encourage readers to explore it in detail.

    Readers may also be interested in our new book, which was published June 2 by Scribner: “Donald Trump and His Assault on Truth: The President’s Falsehoods, Misleading Claims and Flat-Out Lies.” We drew on the database to compile a guide to Trump’s most frequently used misstatements, biggest whoppers and most dangerous deceptions. We examine in detail how Trump misleads about himself and his foes, the economy, immigration, the Ukraine controversy, foreign policy, the coronavirus crisis and many other issues. The book is a national bestseller and earned a starred review from Kirkus Reviews, which called it “an extremely valuable chronicle.”

    So much for doing so much for the African American community.

    In February, when the coronavirus seemed like a distant threat in the United States, President Trump celebrated record low unemployment rates with a self-promoting speech to a North Carolina economic summit.

    “From the day I took office, I have been working to build an unlimited future for African American communities who have given, served, and sacrificed so much for our nation,” he said, pointing to record low unemployment rates.

    And “really happily for me,” the president trumpeted this month, was the “700,000 jobs for African American workers added in the last two months.”

    Yet, even as monthly black jobless rates were falling to 5.4 percent in August 2019, continuing a drop that began years earlier under President Barack Obama, Trump administration policies and programs — notably regarding the Minority Business Development Agency and the Small Business Administration — did not advance black economic development.

    Then, as the United States attempted its latest reckoning with centuries of systemic racism, it became clear that “The Coronavirus Crisis Is Worsening Racial Inequality.” That’s the title of a paper from the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, outlining ways administration policies and programs work against African American financial progress.

    Rather than a “great equalizer,” as New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) called the virus, “inequality has only worsened during the current national hardship,” said Connor Maxwell, the article’s author. And while covid-19 would hurt the economy no matter who occupied the White House, “the Trump administration’s economic policies have directly contributed to the current recession’s disproportionate impact on Black Americans.

    “These disparities were completely avoidable. Black suffering is not inevitable,” he added. “Had the Trump administration prioritized the economic well-being of all Americans instead of just wealthy investors, black Americans would likely be in a better economic situation than they are now.”

    Examples of the disparities and related Trump policies include:

    ●The administration repeatedly has proposed devastating budget cuts for the Commerce Department’s Minority Business Development Agency. Trump’s fiscal 2021 budget request would slash its funding by 76 percent, which would emaciate the agency’s mission to promote the growth of minority-owned businesses.

    ●Despite vocal support from Trump for small, black-owned businesses, only 3 percent of funding through the Small Business Administration’s primary loan program goes to African Americans, who are 13 percent of the population. That also was the case during Obama’s tenure.

    ●From March into early June, 54 percent of black families lost employment income, compared with 43 percent of white households, according to Maxwell’s calculations using Census Bureau data. Nearly 3 in 10 black renters missed a rental payment, compared with 13 percent of white renters. Nearly one-quarter of African American homeowners and 45 percent of black renters, both at least twice the white rates, “have slight or no confidence that they will be able to make next month’s payment,” he wrote, and “27 percent of Black respondents reported that they are currently experiencing food insecurity.” That’s three times the white rate.

    ●“The number of active business owners in the United States plummeted by 3.3 million or 22 percent over the crucial two-month window from February to April 2020,” according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, a private, nonpartisan organization that is the official recession arbiter. “The drop in business owners was the largest on record. . . . African-American businesses were hit especially hard experiencing a 41 percent drop. Latinx business owners fell by 32 percent, and Asian business owners dropped by 26 percent.”

    An SBA statement distanced the agency from its own data, saying because the demographic information “is provided by the loan applicants on a voluntary basis, it is not necessarily inclusive of all SBA borrowers, nor can its accuracy be verified by the Agency. Accordingly, SBA cannot make any representation as to the completeness or accuracy of the information provided.”

    The White House, the Office of Management and Budget, the Treasury Department and the Commerce Department did not respond to a request for comment.

    Compounding covid-19’s ravaging and racial health impact, its recession “is devastating black Americans,” said Marc Morial, president and chief executive of the National Urban League. “Anyone who has a job that doesn't allow them to work inside of home is either in a risky job or they’ve probably been laid off.”

    On top of that, he said, there has been very little in Trump’s agenda to enhance black employment.

    He inherited a growing economy from Obama. He inherited an arc of declining unemployment from Obama,” Morial added. “He’s riding on Obama’s coattails.”

    Bureau of Labor Statistics data back Morial’s point. Despite Trump’s boasting, before the pandemic, the black unemployment rate decreased slower under his watch than Obama’s.

    During Obama’s last three years, the black unemployment rate fell from 11.9 percent in December 2013 to 7.9 percent in December 2016. Those four percentage points equal a one-third drop.

    During the first three years under Trump, the African American jobless rate fell from 7.9 percent in February 2017 to 5.8 percent in February 2020. Those 2.1 percentage points equal a drop of just over one-fourth.

    The virus-induced black jobless rate shot up to 16.8 percent in May and was 15.4 percent in June, about one-third higher than the white unemployment figure.

    “This is a tough situation and it’s especially tough for black Americans,” Morial said. “It's always going to be tougher for black Americans because we’re the caboose of the American economic train.”

    The left were pressuring him to wear a mask? I thought he was for masks the whole time... 

    I can't believe we are 4 months into this virus. He finally wears a mask publicly and people are trying to spin it as he looks so tough! This is after he retweeted Biden wearing a mask at a funeral and making fun of him. PATHETIC.

    Naa it's just a game of chess you know that.
    That is not the first time he wore a mask ever, it's the first time he wore a mask while on camera.

    If it took 1 million US deaths inside of 9 months from covid 19, if 1,000,000 was the magic number to get Trump voted out, would it be worth it?

    There’s 20,000+ lies that are enough reasons to vote him out, never mind 135,000 deaths. In fact, Team Trump Treason should be voted out for his colluding with Putin on the ritz. But you know that.

    I guarantee you that this is not the image the left hoped for when pressuring him to wear a mask.
    Next I'll bet they will demand him to take it off.
    Way too little, way too late.
    Naa it's just a game of chess you know that.
    That is not the first time he wore a mask ever, it's the first time he wore a mask while on camera.

    *Hey question,
    If it took 1 million US deaths inside of 9 months from covid 19, if 1,000,000 was the magic number to get Trump voted out, would it be worth it?
    1 death is too many
    But if people still want to support him after 135,000+ then they deserve every bad thing coming to them.
