This article requires us to trust the Washington Post.

That's a lie.

Trump wasn't very skilled at this.

Trump was the greatest leader of USA after Reagan ...

We need him back in the white house other wise China and Russia will eat us ..

That headline should come as a surprise to nobody. "All presidents tell the truth...sometimes" would be harder to believe.

I can't imagine anyone, regardless of your political persuasion, even trusts half of what any president has to say.

Modern presidents find it more challenging to lie without having their lies recognized as untrue than presidents serving before the advent of social media and dedicated fact-checking.

Is definitely true, and I would initially say a good thing. However, the same social media drives falsehoods as much or more as it does fact-checking.

They want Trump back in the White House so they can eat the U.S, he's that easy to play.

All American presidents have lied: The question is why and when

Oh sure, make the question past tense. Just like US Presidents, JT doesn’t want you to think about how to avoid party politics and vote for people who are NOT politicians first.

Here’s my top 3 list:

Ralph Nader-healthcare and more

Ross Perot- balanced budget and more

Ron Paul-healthcare, reduced military, less government, ending the war on drugs,
