I call them lies instead of false statements. He knows what he’s doing.

Polling objectively shows:
1. The lying doesn’t work
2. The wall is unpopular
3. His anti-immigration has backfired
4. Obamacare is more popular than ever
5. Barack and Michelle Obama are 2018 most admired Americans
6. Republicans had the worst midterm results since Watergate https://t.co/gRwapQUBrB

1) As Trump ends the year with a flood of lies about his wall, we need to recapture a core truth about this presidency.
Trump isn't “twisting the truth” or “stubbornly refusing to admit error.”
Trump is engaged in *disinformation.*
This is a different thing entirely.

It’s so cool when Trump misrepresents how other people feel in order to make his point. Federal workers want the shutdown. Dems want open borders. Everybody knows walls always work. Trump lies about what he thinks and about what you think. Fun!
