Trump’s Speech to Congress Contained Dozens of Lies, Falsehoods, Inaccurate, or Misleading Statements

President Donald Trump delivered his first speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night that immediately was heralded by many on the right and on the left as “presidential.” Given that he is the president, why do Americans allow him to be anything but presidential?

In his response to his speech before Congress, Trump is called out for failing to mention anything about our Broken Justice System which has imprisoned more people in the United States than any other country on earth, no mention about Social Security, Medicare, Campaign Finance Reform, Voter Suppression and Climate Change.  Trump’s promise to “Drain the Swamp” has turned out to be just another LIE because he has hired unqualified Millionaires & Billionaires to fill his top cabinet positions.

An excellent example is Betsy Devos who Trump choose as Education Secretary.  Since 1970, the DeVos family has invested at least $200 million in various right-wing causes. DeVos’s father-in-law is the co-founder of Amway and her brother is Erik Prince, founder of the mercenary firm Blackwater.

American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said, “In nominating DeVos Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on privatizing, defunding and destroying public education in America.”
