74% Of Donald Trump's Statements Checked By Politifact Are False

Trump liesFact checkers exist to determine if people are telling the truth. It stands to reason that they will check important statements that are controversial or seemingly false.

No one's going to check if a presidential candidate says, "I love Iowa!," even if it is false, but they will check if a candidate says white people are mostly murdered by Black people, as a graphic in a tweet sent by Donald Trump Sunday claimed.
