Trump Flees Press Conference After CBS News’ Paula Reid Calls Out His Lie About Signing Veterans Choice Bill (Obama 2014)

CBS News reporter Paula Reid asked President Donald Trump why he continues to falsely claim that he signed the Veterans Choice Bill, which was signed by former President Obama in 2014.

CNN’s Daniel Dale tweeted that Trump has told that lie 143 times.
