Below is a running list of instances in which representatives of the Trump administration have uttered documented falsehoods since the election. It is, doubtless, not a comprehensive list. But I have tried to hit the high (low) points. Hopefully I will have opportunity to keep updating it.

Not all the claims below are properly lies. Some are the product of ignorance. Some are born of efforts to provide the appearance of knowledge when knowledge is clearly lacking. Some are doubtless self-delusions, this seems especially the case concerning claims that threaten Trump’s incredibly fragile ego. But some are good old fashioned lies, intended to convince listeners to agree with a conclusion that they would not if they had access to the truth. I have limited the list to fairly direct contradictions of truth, and have left most cases of exaggeration and vagueness to the side. The exceptions are for exaggerations so massive as to constitute a direct contradiction of truth. One last note: I have not catalogued here ever repetition of falsehoods. Quite frankly, to do so would quickly consume one’s entire life. It is a mark of the Trump administration that they not only utter falsehoods, but utter them constantly and repeatedly.

Whatever we are to say about the many different kinds of falsehoods represented, what is clear is that the sheer mass of falsehoods represents something unprecedented in recent American memory. Whether we want to consider the trump administration to be carrying out a war against truth is, perhaps, up for debate. But what is clear is that the Trump administration is at the very least disinterested in truth. And the falsehoods that the administration utters are so all encompassing that the upshot is to destabilize the whole notion of truth. It is, in many ways, like being ruled by the boy who cried wolf. Eventually, even the truth becomes disorienting, because you don’t expect it to be uttered.

  1. Trump claims that there are “probably 2 million” or “even 3 million” criminals living illegally in the U.S. Estimates place the true number at around 800,000. (11/13/2016)

  11. Concerning his decision not to divest from his business interests, Trump claims “The law’s totally on my side, the president can’t have a conflict of interest.” The Emolument Clause of the Constitution specifies that no President can accept “any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
  12. Contemplating closing the Trump Foundation, Trump accused news outlets of failing to cover the fact that that 100% of the foundation’s money goes to charity. In fact, The Trump Foundation’s use of money has been widely covered, as when Trump used $20,000 from the Foundation to buy a 6 foot portrait of himself, or when he used  $158,000 in Foundation funds to resolve a lawsuit against him, and when it violated tax law by making political donations. (12/26/2017)

  28. Trump claims that if the United States had taken Iraq’s oil after the ouster of Saddam Hussein, “you probably wouldn’t have ISIS because that’s where they made their money in the first place.” ISIS is primarily funded by revenues on Syrian oil. (1/21/2017)

  30. Trump claims that media sources used photographs of “an empty field” to make it seem as if his inauguration did not draw many people. (1/21/2017)

  35. Sean Spicer claims that there was a report “that came out of Pew in 2008 that showed 14 percent of people who voted were noncitizens.” There is no Pew Research report on the subject. There is an Old Dominion study that concludes that 14% of noncitizens voted in 2008 (a totally different claim than the one Spicer made), and that study has been widely criticized for poor methodology. (1/24/2017)
  36. Sean Spicer claims that Trump won the Electoral College “overwhelmingly with 306 electoral votes, the most since any Republican since Reagan.” Due to defections, Trump received 304 electoral votes. George H.W. Bush won 426 electoral votes in 1988. (1/24/2017)

  44. Trump claims that at his CIA speech he “got a standing ovation. In fact, they said it was the biggest standing ovation since Peyton Manning had won the Super Bowl and they said it was equal.” Protocol required that CIA representatives not sit down until directed. The President never directed them to sit. The comparison to Peyton Manning is absurd on its face. (1/26/2017)

  51. Kellyanne Conway claims that calling Trump’s immigration Executive Order a “Muslim ban” is “nonsense” because it only targets 7 Muslim countries. The day before Rudy Giuliani explained the origin of the Executive Order saying that Trump asked for a “Muslim ban” that would not be illegal. (1/29/2017)
  52. Trump claims that his travel ban is “similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.” (1/29/2017)

  62. Trump tweets that “The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia.” The agreement concerned 1,250 refugees (not illegal immigrants). (2/2/2017)
  63. Sean Spicer states that “Iran’s additional hostile actions that it took against our Navy vessel are ones that we are very clear are not going to sit by and take.” Iran had taken no hostile action toward any navy vessel. The only potentially comparable event in the region was four days before when Iranian backed Houthi rebels in Yemen attacked a Saudi ship. (2/2/2017)
  64. Trump tweets that: “Iran was on its last legs and ready to collapse until the U.S. came along and gave it a life-line in the form of the Iran Deal: $150 billion.” The Iran deal unfroze Iranian assets, the eventual total is estimated to be around $100 billion, and it is estimated that they immediately gained access to between $56 and $60 billion dollars of that money. There is no evidence that Iran was ready to collapse prior to the deal. (2/2/2017)
  65. Citing delayed confirmation of administration nominees, Kelyanne Conway claims: “This is longest that the nation has gone without a secretary of the Treasury, at least in modern times.” This was 14 days after the nomination. In the past it has taken 34 and 35 days till confirmation. (2/2/2017)
  66. Trump says 109 people were affected by travel ban. In reality, it was at least 60,000 people. (2/5/2017).
  67. In response to questions from Senator Patty Murray, Betsey DeVos reports inflated graduation rates for “virtual schools” to counter the claim that they are unsuccessful. (2/4/2017)
  68. Trump tweets: “Interesting that certain Middle-Eastern countries agree with the ban. They know if certain people are allowed in it’s death & destruction!” This appears to be a reference to a false story, posted on Trump’s Facebook page, that Kuwait followed Trump an instituted a ban of it’s own. Kuwait had instituted a ban on immigration from certain countries in 2011, but has since eliminated the policy. (2/4/2017)
  69. Trump claims that sanctuary cities “breed crime.” (2/5/2017)
  70. Trump claims that the press has intentionally stopped covering terror attacks. (2/6/2017)
  71. Trump tweets: “I don’t know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy.” Before running for President, Trump often played up his relationship with Putin. In addition to repeatedly traveling to Russia in search of real estate deals, Trump has many deals with investors in Russia. As Trump’s son once said: “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
  72. Trump claims that his cabinet appointments have faced the longest delay in getting confirmed in the history of the United States. He is wrong by several months. (2/7/2017)

  79. Trump claims Sen. Richard Blumenthal “misrepresented” a conversation with Supreme Court Nominee Niel Gorsuch in which Gorsuch called Trump’s attacks on the judiciary “disheartening” and “demoralizing.” Gorsuch confirms that this is exactly what he said. (2/9/2017).
  80. With reference to Trump’s attacks on the judiciary over his immigration plan, Sean Spicer claimed “when President Obama criticized the Supreme Court for its Citizens United comments in the State of the Union, there wasn’t a similar concern about that.” Obama’s criticized the court’s decision, calling it wrong, Trump has attacked the character of the judges involved, labeling him a “so-called judge” making the comparison problematic from the start. But Obama’s criticism was widely covered in the press. (2/9/2017)
  81. Trump claims CNN reporter Chris Cuomo soft pedaled an interview by failing to ask Sen. Richard Blumenthal about his service in Vietnam. In fact Cuomo had asked about that. (2/9/2017)
  82. When asked about “reports that General Flynn had conversations with the Russians about the sanctions” Trump responds “I don’t know about it. I haven’t seen it. What report is that?” Two days later Sean Spicer states that the White House has been “reviewing and evaluating this issue with respect to General Flynn on a daily basis for a few weeks.” (2/10/2017)
  83. After CNN reported that facts in the Russian dossier were corroborated by investigators, Donald Trump and Sean Spicer respond by asserting that CNN is reporting “fake news” and claiming of the dossier: “It’s all fake news.”(2/10/2017)
  84. Concerning judicial push-back against Trump’s immigration policy, White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller claimed that “This is an ideological disagreement between those who believe we should have borders and should have controls and those who believe there should be no borders and no controls.” Trump’s migration plan has been put on hold, but that hold leaves in place the established immigration laws prior to Trump’s Executive Order. None of the judges involved have the power to, or have indicated any inclination toward eliminating border controls. (2/12/2017)
  85. Trump tweets: “While on FAKE NEWS @CNN, Bernie Sanders was cut off for using the term fake news to describe the network. They said technical difficulties.” This appears to be an instance where Trump has taken a story from an actual Fake News site: In the actual interview with CNN, Bernie Sanders critiques Trump for calling CNN a fake news network. Afterwards there are technical problems. (2/12/2017)
  86. Kellyanne Conway reported that “The president is very loyal. He’s a very loyal person. And by nighttime, Mike Flynn had decided it was best to resign.” Steven Spicer reported that Flynn’s misrepresenting facts to the Vice President “led to the president asking for and accepting the resignation of Gen. Flynn.” Either the President stood by Flynn and Flynn decided to resign, or the President decided and asked for Flynn’s resignation. Only one of these accounts can be true. (2/14/2017)
  87. Defending Trump against charges of falsely answering questions about what he knew about Michael Flynn (see #77 above) Sean Spicer states: “What he was asked specifically is was he aware of a Washington Post story.” The question Trump had been asked was actually “What do you think of reports that General Flynn had conversations with the Russians about the sanctions before you were sworn in?” The Washington Post report came up later, but it was not the focus of the question Trump was answering when he denied knowledge of Flynn’s situation. (2/14/2017)
  88. Commenting on recent ICE raids, Trump states: ‘‘We’re actually taking people that are criminals, very, very, hardened criminals in some cases … I said at the beginning, we are going to get the bad ones, the really bad ones, we’re getting them out and that’s exactly what we’re doing.” He has this exactly backwards. The ICE raids that happened in February were planned before he became President. The one change that appears to be that these raids picked up at least one “dreamer” with no criminal record that was protected under the Obama administration. (2/14/2017)
  89. Trump claims that it is “really a horrible thing to watch the tremendous amount of increase” in autism rates among children. The rate has increased largely due to the fact that (1) more people with autism are getting properly diagnosed and (2) the definition of autism has been broadened to include more cases. In short, its a good thing that rates are increasing. It indicates that we are better at identifying autism. (2/15/2017)
  90. Trump tweets that the New York Times and the Washington Post are “failing.” Both papers have seen spikes in readership recently. In January, the Washington Post “fact checker” page beat its previous readership record by 50%.
  91. Trump tweets that Democrats made up the story of Russian manipulation during the presidential election. It was not Democrats, but the CIA who concluded that manipulation occurred. (2/16/2017)

  93. Trump claims that for the 2016 election,”People came out and voted like they’ve never seen before.” The 2016 vote witnessed around 60% voter participation. Voter participation in the Untied States reached its height in the late 1800s, at around 80%. Turnout for the 2016 election was lower than it was for either the 2008 or the 2012 election.
  94. Trump claims the 9th Circuit Court “has been overturned at a record number. I have heard 80 percent.I find that hard to believe, that is just a number I heard, that they are overturned 80 percent of the time.” Only .01% of the 9th Circuit’s cases are reviewed by the Supreme Court. 80% OF THIS .01% are overturned. That is not a record. The Supreme court generally overturns 70% of cases they review, and they have overturned as many as 85% and 87% from other courts. (12/16/2017)
  95. Trump claims “We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country.” Russia bought Uranium One, a company that owns enough mines that they have 20% of the production capacity in the United States (not 20% of the uranium). Clinton was secretary of state at the time, but she didn’t have the power to approve or reject the deal. The State Department was only one of nine federal agencies that signed off on the deal, and only Obama had the power to veto it. (12/16/2017)
  96. Talking about his immigration executive order, Trump claims that “The roll out was perfect.” The roll out was marked by large protests at airports across the United States, disrupting travel. The original version of the executive order did not make exceptions for green card holders. The White House later corrected for this. The Directer of homeland security later acknowledged that there were problems with the roll out. (2/16/2017)
  97. Trump states that “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine.” That week Trump’s National Security Advisor was sacked (or voluntarily resigned) after misleading the Vice President concerning calls to the Russians. The next candidate for National Security Advisor turned down the administration. Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary withdrew from the confirmation process due to evidence that he had employed illegal immigrants. Trump himself has noted that the administration has an unprecedented number of leaks. (2/16/2017)
  98. Trump states: the media has “a lower approval rate than Congress, I think that’s right, I don’t know. I think they have lower — I heard lower than Congress.” Trump gives himself an out here by admitting that he does not know what he is talking about, but it’s worth noting because it is a false claim that he has made before, and in less qualified terms. 55% of people view Congress negatively, only 9% view it positively. 36-40 % of people have a negative view of media sources, around 20% view media sources positively. (2/16/2017)
  99. Trump claims that “I inherited a mess. It’s a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.” It is hard to quantify what constitutes a “mess” but as a comparative statement this is clearly false. Barack Obama inherited a nation engaged in two wars and the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression. Trump inherited an unemployment rate of 4.8, down from 10 at its most recent height. The Dow Jones at Trump’s inauguration was up 200% over its low during the Obama administration. (2/16/2017)
  100. Trump claims that Alex Acosta, his new nominee for the Secretary of Labor “is a member and has been a member of the National Labor Relations Board ” Acosta is not currently on the Board. He served on the board from 2002-2003. (2/16/2017)
  101. In response to an AP story about a Department of Homeland Security memo outlining the use of National Guard troops to aid in deporting undocumented immigrants, Sean Spicer denies the report and states: “I wish you guys had asked before you tweeted.The Associated Press had contacted both the White House and the Department of Homeland Security multiple times, beginning 24 hours before it reported the story. (2/17/2017)
  102. While reviewing problems other countries face with immigrants, Trump mentions “what’s happening last night in Sweden.” There was no incident in Sweden the night before. (2/18/2017)
  103. Trump claims that the “dishonest media” has “published one false story after another, with no sources, even though they pretend they have them. They make them up in many cases.” Main stream media outlets have relatively high ethical standards, as is shown in the cases of the firing of Dan Rather, the removal of Bryan Williams, and the dismissal of Billy Bush. There have been no documented cases of stories being reported by these outlets without sources. (2/18/2017)
  104. Trump claims “We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country. And there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing.” The United States has had one of the most rigorous vetting systems for any country in the world, it takes two years or more to complete. (2/18/2017)
  105. Trump suggests that the country is more optimistic under his presidency, stating: Look at what’s happening in every poll when it comes to optimism in our country.” One recent poll pegged 54% of Americans as uncertain or pessimistic about the future of the country. Gallup polls suggest that consumer confidence has fallen in the last month and that Trump has one of the lowest approval ratings of any President at this point in his tenure.(2/18/2017)
  106. Trump claims he did “very well” with women in the election. Existing poling data disagrees. (2/18/2017)
  107. Concerning reports of Trump campaign contacts with Russia, Trump claims: “I never get phone calls from the media. How did they write a story like that in The Wall Street Journal without asking me or how did they write a story in The New York Times, put it on front page?” Both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal repeatedly contacted the White House asking for comment on their stories. (2/18/2017)
  108. Donald Trump writes: “large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!” Sweden has taken in far more refugees than the United States. There is no evidence that immigration is the cause of major social problems in Sweden. (2/20/2017)
    Mostly False
