Trump spoke at length about what he had falsely suggested as a deliberate attempt by social media companies to prevent him from gaining subscribers, saying that "a lot of bad things were happening."
Trump said it took him a "small number of days" to win 100,000 new subscribers, but it now takes "10 times longer", though, he said, his personal brand is "much hotter" "That she was only gaining followers more quickly.
"People come to me:" Sir, we want to follow you; they do not leave us, "said Trump.He added later:" I have millions of people, so many people that I would not believe, but I know we've been stuck. People come up to me and say, "Sir, I can not have you, I can not follow you."
The facts first: There is no evidence that Twitter or other social media companies have made it difficult to follow Trump.
We obviously can not check what some people could have said in private to Trump to follow him on social networks, but the follow is not complicated: simply create an account, search his name and click on one button. .
Trump extolled the low unemployment rate for women by saying, "I think women, Kellyanne (Conway), are the best in 75 years – the best unemployment rate in 75 years."
While arguing that he should be allowed to include a citizenship issue in the US Census of 2020, Trump said the census survey could ask people about the number of beds and toilets they had but not on the fact that they are citizens or not.
"They go through the houses, they go up, they ring the bell, they talk to people, how many toilets do they have, how many offices do they have, how many beds, what is their roof made of?" Trump said. "The only thing we can not ask for, is" Are you a citizen of the United States? "
The facts first: Trump incorrectly suggests that the decennial census asks households how many toilets there are in a house. It could refer to additional Census Bureau surveys, which ask questions about the living conditions of a small sample of households. If so, he is always wrong, because these inquiries raise questions of citizenship.
But the ACS also includes questions about citizenship. "Is this person a citizen of the United States?" this year's version asks. So, Trump is wrong to suggest that even though you can ask these more specific questions about living conditions, you can not ask about citizenship status.
On the details, Trump's argument lacks facts, and on its widest point, it's blatantly wrong: the decennial census has not asked about the number of bathrooms, bedrooms, etc.
401 (k) s
Trump touted a new record set by the Dow Jones Industrial Average and then said how much the 401 (k) retirement plans had gone up.
"I do not know if you know it, but we just hit 27,000 on the Dow … the highest in history, for those of you who like the stock market but the stock market means jobs.I consider it as jobs, and I consider it as 401 (k) s … And people with 401 (k) s, they are up 72% and 67%, and the wife or husband, whoever is responsible, the other says a genius, you are an excellent financial investor, darling, you are up 77% this year. "
The facts first: These percentages overestimate the gains on the US stock markets.
Crowd, first part
Trump asserted that there were thousands of people outside his June campaign launch meeting in Orlando, in addition to the large crowd inside.
"We had some kind of opening rally in Orlando, Florida, we had 109,000, maybe more, who wanted to come in. We were doing everything we could to keep people from coming. We had a stadium with 21,000 seats, then on the basketball court there was a lot more than that, it was packed, and we had a similar number on the outside. "
The facts first: There was nowhere near 21,000 people outside the rally while Trump was talking. And the arena had a capacity of 20,000 people that night, not much more than 21,000 people.
The city of Orlando, owner of the arena, has published an official account of 19,792 people, a figure barely below the 20,000 announced by a spokesman for the city, reportedly reported the Sentinel.
Trump then looked at the number of people present when Joe Biden announced his candidacy earlier this year.
Crowd, Part 2
"You look at Biden, they say he had 600 people, it was not 600, it was 150. It was 150."
The facts first: Independent observers reported that Joe Biden had actually welcomed 600 people during his first public event after announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the presidency.
Democrats and the border wall
Trump accused Democrats of hypocrisy for their opposition to the border wall project.
"For example, on the wall: Chuck Schumer was totally in favor of a wall, is not it Liz (Cheney)? Totally in favor. Everyone: Hillary, everyone. They were all in favor of a wall a few years ago. "
The facts first: Some Democrats, not all, voted in 2006 to approve a fence that, according to Trump himself, was very different from the wall he wanted.
