Trump AP Interview Bubbling Over With "FALSE"

Image result for false

Fortune has published a piece regarding Trump's AP interview of last Friday.  

The following video was an embed in the Fortune post and here is a link to the full interview transcript. Of course, you know Trump lies 81 plus percent of the time and I am convinced when not lying he spews whatever thoughts trickle through his brain and out of his mouth.  In simple terms, if you believe anything Trump says, it may serve a reflection on you.

While media sources are starting to publish lies and misstatement from the interview, we find the MSN Fact Check a great short read. 

Fact Check excerpt

TRUMP: "No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days." — Tuesday at the Kenosha, Wisconsin, headquarters of Snap-on tools 
THE FACTS: Trump's legislative victories are minor, surpassed by those of a variety of high achievers in the White House. 
Taking office in the Great Depression, Roosevelt quickly declared a banking holiday to quiet panic, called a special session of Congress and won passage of emergency legislation to stabilize the banking system. He came forward with a flurry of consequential legislation that set the pillars of the New Deal in place within his first 100 days, "the most concentrated period of U.S. reform in U.S. history," say Alan Brinkley and Davis Dyer in "The Reader's Companion to the American Presidency." No fewer than 14 historic laws were enacted in that time.
Trump's big agenda items, like his promised tax overhaul and infrastructure plan, have yet to reach Congress. His attempt to secure the borders from people from terrorism-prone regions is so far blocked by courts. His first attempt to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's health care law failed in Congress. 
Trump needn't look as far back as FDR to see a president who got off to a fast start. Obama signed a $787 billion stimulus package into law in his first month, while also achieving laws expanding health care for children and advancing equal pay for women in that time. 
Like Roosevelt, Obama came to office in an economic crisis, the worst since the Depression. Lawmakers from both parties were inclined to act quickly and did, even as they fought over the details of the big stimulus package that defined Obama's early days. 
President Ronald Reagan's 100 days were considered the hardest-driving since FDR's time, even though Reagan was shot March 30, 1981. He presented Congress with the most consequential tax, spending and government-overhaul plan it had seen in decades, a comprehensive package that exceeds in scope anything Trump has brought forward, including his first run at health care. Congressional approval came later.
Politifact also performed a review of Trump's 100 Days in Office.  
"No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days."
Our ruling
Trump said, "No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days." 
Trump has had some achievements in office, but at the very least, they are much less numerous and far-reaching than those of Roosevelt, the standard against whom all presidents are measured. In more recent years, other presidents, including Obama, have accomplished more in their first 100 days than Trump has, historians say. We rate the claim False.
Donald Trump

"No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days."

The Politifact Trump reviews are growing in number and skewering very much to the "False" and "Pants on Fire" portion the review graph.

We saved the best for last (excuse the cliche).  Herewith is a Star dot Com piece regarding the interview: Link.

Donald Trump has serious issues with credibility, character, and veracity.
