That was an average of 4.9 claims a day.
We thought our work was done. But many readers demanded we continue keeping track of the president’s suspect statements. And we always try to respond to reader requests.
So today we announce the creation of a new interactive graphic. We will keep tracking his false and misleading claims until Jan 19, 2018 — the end of his first year in office. The new graphic is not quite as detailed as the “100 days” effort, but it still will allow readers to explore his claims at length. Because the president likes to keep repeating claims that have been previously debunked, we make it easy for readers to see when he had previously made a similar false statement.
Our goal is to update the project every two weeks or so. In the past three weeks, the president has uttered almost 100 additional false or misleading claims.
