Friday, July 1, 2016 on Trump v. Clinton

Non-partisan fact-check website compares presumptive nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Trump has more statements rated Pants on Fire, 30, than the 21 other candidates for president we’ve fact-checked this cycle combined.

Ninety-five of the 158 fact-checks of claims made by Trump have been rated False or Pants on Fire. Add in Mostly False and that accounts for 123 (78 percent) of all of Trump’s fact-checked claims.

Number of Donald Trump claims rated True since he started his campaign.

Let that last one sink in. Of the 158 fact-checks of Trump, FOUR are rated True.

Just 16 of Clinton’s 120 rated statements ended up as False or Pants on Fire. By contrast, 53 percent of the statements we fact-checked were rated True or Mostly True.
