Is President Trump trustworthy? | The Tylt
Senator Bob Corker said President Trump was "utterly untruthful" after Trump claimed Corker wouldn't be seeking reelection because Trump "refused to endorse him." Corker is not alone in accusing Trump of being untrustworthy, the president has a history of making questionable—and outright false—statements. But supporters of Trump argue he is trustworthy, and it is the media and politicians who are trying to paint him as a liar. What do you think?
Is President Trump trustworthy?
The feud between President Trump and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker was reignited after Corker accused the president of being untruthful. Trump was quick to fire off a series of Tweets attacking Corker.
...Corker dropped out of the race in Tennesse when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump. Look at his record!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
Sen. Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the U.S. has done. He doesn't have a clue as.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
...the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddle' Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 24, 2017
In response to the onslaught from the president, Corker fired off a single Tweet referring to earlier comments he had made about the White House having become "an adult day care center."
Corker then told CNN that the president "has difficulty with the truth."
According to Politifact, 69 percent of statements made by the president are either false, mostly false or "pants on fire" lies.
And some believe there is a consensus among both Democrats and Republicans that the president cannot be trusted to tell the truth.
But Trump's defenders believe it is the media and politicians who are untrustworthy and trying to smear the president.
Can't trust the media or CNN anymore. The Americans new what to expect from Donald Trump. We don't see anything different.— Richard Carter (@Trucker0088) October 21, 2017
Thing is Don, every time Trump gets called a liar by the media he's proven to have actually told the truth which in turn makes the media the liars. We don't trust you anymore because of this.— Ringneck85 (@Ringneck85) October 24, 2017
