President Donald Trump told lie after lie during a bizarre press conference (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
Trump falsely claimed “we have done as well as any nation” with COVID-19 even though the U.S. leads the world in coronavirus deaths.
Trump also told reporters that the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. was better than Japan even though Japan had 853 new cases on Aug. 2, while the U.S .had 47,335.

Trump also tried to demonize mail-in voting by falsely claiming the U.S. Postal Service does not have the ability to handle it.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta debunked Trump’s post office lie:
We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, ‘the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
