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.
Rather than respond, Trump quickly ended his press conference, which included a crowd of his supporters, at his Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey.
CNN’s Daniel Dale tweeted that Trump has told that lie 143 times.
"We passed Choice, as you know," Trump says for at least the 143rd time of the bill signed into law by Obama in 2014, "and they've been trying to get that for decades and decades and decades and no president's ever been able to do it."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) August 8, 2020
