Trump Refuses to Answer Question About Lying to the American People

HeadlineAug 14, 2020

During Thursday’s press conference, President Trump refused to answer when asked if he regretted all the lies he’s made to the American public. This is Trump being questioned by HuffPost senior White House correspondent S.V. Dáte.

S.V. Dáte: “Mr. President, after three-and-a-half years, do you regret at all all the lying you’ve done to the American people, on everything?”

President Donald Trump: “All the what?”

S.V. Dáte: “All the lying, all the dishonesties.”

President Donald Trump: “That who has done?”

S.V. Dáte: “You have done.”

President Donald Trump: “Uh.”

S.V. Dáte: “Tens of thousands.”

President Donald Trump: “Yeah, go ahead. Please. Please.”

Dáte tweeted he had waited to ask that question for years. A Washington Post tally finds Trump has made more than 20,000 false or misleading claims since taking office.
