No, people getting on planes aren’t being tested.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) April 7, 2020
No, Trump didn’t inherit old tests.
No, there’s no evidence of bias by the HHS deputy IG.
No, it’s not true Obama barely even noticed H1N1.
No, China didn’t just start spending money in the US. https://t.co/t6e0VDM7EB
Fact check: President Trump made another series of false, misleading or dubious claims at a coronavirus briefing that began with an off-topic discussion of his administration's efforts to fight drug trafficking https://t.co/iIfuclNfQv— CNN (@CNN) April 2, 2020
Rather than the usual barrage of specific false claims, this briefing has featured a dishonest overall narrative — a Trump effort to cast himself as the leader who stood strong against the faction that downplayed the severity of the virus.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 31, 2020
Fact check on tonight’s briefing: Trump denies saying two things he said on television in the last four days. https://t.co/cq608GRtTr— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 30, 2020
Smart piece by @YLindaQiu categorizing Trump's coronavirus dishonesty. Her list of main themes: playing down the severity of the pandemic; overstating medical progress and policy promises; inaccurately blaming others; rewriting history. https://t.co/2mFYVvMoSs— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 28, 2020
Inaccuracies about the stock market. Baffling statements about a closed GM plant. Stating you can call coronavirus the flu. President Trump has continued the false and misleading claims that have become a part of White House briefings on coronavirus. https://t.co/qPzWaTVonF— CNN (@CNN) March 28, 2020
These are just some of the false claims from today's briefing… https://t.co/wWwba1RePw— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 28, 2020
It's not true that nobody ever thought this crisis could happen. It's not true that the WaPo report on Inslee's comments to Trump was "fake news." It's not true that "everybody" wants businesses reopened rapidly amid the pandemic. https://t.co/DZOp17cfdr— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 27, 2020
Trump wrongly describes tariffs on imported Chinese products, paid by Americans, as China paying "interest."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 27, 2020
Again, the Trump sections of these briefings are thoroughly dishonest. Can't even keep up today.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 27, 2020
Trump could not have become President without unprecedented free media from TV networks in 2015-16. Now the same networks are giving him a daily platform to spread disinformation in a pandemic. https://t.co/LGEaN9ErSA— Ben Rhodes (@brhodes) March 27, 2020
Trump says he doesn't want to stand here for two hours at these briefings, but "it's important for the public to know." He says "it gives our country confidence." He says, "I'm very transparent."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 23, 2020
He's been relentlessly dishonest and inaccurate in these briefings.
Trump: GM and Ford are making ventilators "right now."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 23, 2020
AP fact check: GM and Ford are not yet making ventilators. https://t.co/Dlkn4U8fB3
He understated the extent of the crisis. He overstated the availability of tests. He falsely blamed Obama. He said he didn't shake hands in India despite many photos of him shaking hands in India.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) March 22, 2020
Trump has been serially dishonest about the coronavirus: https://t.co/93Uu30PVqS
He didn’t “misstate the facts”. He lied. It’s called lying. Just say the word.— Gary Andover (@andover_gary) March 20, 2020

President Trump is rapidly seeking to rewrite the history of the coronavirus pandemic and his administration's reaction to it, even as its scale continues to escalate rapidly in the US as more and more tests for it are conducted. | Analysis by @CillizzaCNN https://t.co/cmygbmpEuF— CNN (@CNN) March 20, 2020
This is a really disturbing display from the podium, one in keeping with the president's view of and statements about the press for three years, but taking place during a pandemic. He talks about how poorly he feels he's treated.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) March 19, 2020
