President Trump said on Wednesday that “nobody is going to come close” to winning against him in the presidential election in 2020 after ignorantly criticizing The New York Times because they published a deeply critical and honest op-ed by an anonymous author who is a senior official in the Trump administration.
“We’ve done more than anybody ever thought possible in, it’s not even two years,” Trump lied while addressing reporters in the White House at an event in which he talked to sheriffs from across America.
“We’re doing a great job,” Trump lied. “The poll numbers are through the roof.” (According to FiveThirtyEight, his approval rating is just 40%.)
Trump also said that the U.S. is going to be one of the host nations for the World Cup for 2026 and lied that “we have started” building the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. (The wall is not being built.)
“Nobody has ever done in less than a two-year period what we’ve done,” he lied.
The anonymous opinion piece The New York Times harshly attacked Trump, saying that the root of all the White House’s problems is “the president’s amorality.”
“Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making,” wrote the author.
