Another day, another demonstrably fake claim from the leader of the free world.
Today Trump is claiming that he is responsible for Veteran’s Choice, a piece of legislation that provides care to injured veterans.
But, as ever, there’s one big problem: this isn’t true.
As Vox’s Aaron Rupar reports, this bill was actually signed by president Obama. Not only that, but the legislation was actually written by Trump’s nemesis, the late John McCain, and socialist Bernie Sanders.
This isn’t the first time that Trump has made this claim. In March 2019, Rupar wrote: “Trump’s untruths about Veterans Choice illustrate the sheer audaciousness of his lies”.
Rupar said that Trump takes credit for the program “in order to demean the late war hero who in fact created it”.
Naturally, with Twitter being Twitter, people have been letting Trump know that they aren’t fooled by his latest claim.
