    Selective checking … amazing how you can twist so-called “facts.”

    • @Abdullah M. That’s not true. Biden, like any modern day democrat, lies constantly…even when the proof is on video. At the debate Biden denied calling the military a horrible thing (I won’t mention here because of YouTube censorship) and it’s plainly on video for all to see. Media silence. No one lies more than the MSM. That’s just one small example.

    • Mark Mikel trump just like any republican lies and is a white nationalist

    • @Rhonda Hunter Are you triggered?

    • @Abdullah M. Ahh. I see. You think if you just say false things like that enough times that they become true. Good luck with that. Most people see through the bs.

    • @mortag145 no she’s not triggered. She’s just smart.

  2. How can USA be trusted.

  3. Chris Wallace : “Are you wearing adult diapers?”
    Candidates : “depends”

    Here’s the schedule for Presidential Election 2020.
    Early voting: Tuesday 10/13 to Friday 10/30.
    Election day: Tuesday 11/ 03/ 20.
    Each State may have a slightly different schedule.
    ( Some States already started their early voting).
    The point is we have plenty of time to get to the polls to vote.
    Don’t wait till the Election day since it will be crowded and long lines.
    If you receive your ballot thru mail, pls, bring it to the polls to vote.
    Don’t let them steal your vote!!!
    This could be the most important election in American history.
    Voter ID and Vote in person.
    And make it an American pride. 💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪.

  5. Ask Herman Cain how the rally worked out for him oh I’m sorry you can’t ask if he’s dead

  6. Hopefully he doesnt forgit his name. names of his family etc?

  7. Just like Joe Biden! USA Today – BOUGHT AND PAID FOR!

  8. This fact check is bunk. There was another fact check saying the opposite of the majority of these.
    – Very Obviously a biased fact check, but more importantly, there’s no fact checks of the Bigger issues they both lied about.

  9. Everyone who saw the debate knows Joe Biden can’t be trusted to run a dounut shop let alone a country

  10. It’s funny how all the doctors forgot about how the respiratory system works

  11. USA is like Chris Wallace bias against the President ..everything Joe says is true and what Trump says is wrong.. The thing is No one knows what Trump paid in taxes because the IRS hasn’t released his tax info it’s a crime they are basing this on an un verified NY times story..idiots

    1. The NYT article said he paid 5.2 million and he owed $750. Furthermore, Wallace is asking about two specific years, and your fact check covers 10 to 15 years, which means your either bias or had to expand the years to manipulate the “fact check”.
    3. Trump is correct. Your fact check then says it has gone up in both republican and democrat cities, but fails to say by how much or if it has risen equally. It also probably only takes into accounts arrest and/or convinctions, which would eliminate riots, looting, vandalism, arson, etc from the equation where the police typically do not arrest large mobs and progressive DAs do not prosecute.
    4. You completely ignore the issue, AND you ignore recent cases and convictions. This is your most egregious WRONG fact check.
    5. You fail to prove it has any ill affect and use a quote that says it “likely” will have an affect. Another false fact check.

    USA and New york times are the fake news media. They’re against trump. So fact and fiction what a joke. The media is so corrupt !!!!

    So you are fact checking with already proven false claims?

  15. Next debate lets see a Republican questioneer and ask Biden questions first since all he does is criticize
    Potus. Maybe if his facts were checked we could get answers on his party destroying our country.
    After all the dems not only paid Antifa and BLM. They also paid thier legal expenses to get them out of jail. Remember all, now their coming after Catholics, and you fools still want Biden.
