President Donald Trump made a desperate plea to Veterans of Foreign Wars in Kansas City, Missouri, to deny reality and not believe what they are seeing:
They are doing a number, just stick with us. Don’t believe that crap you see from these people, the fake news.
The veterans cheered Trump’s advice, and he falsely claimed that NBC News reporting is created “by the lobbyists and by the people that they hire.”
Trump falsely claimed the country was doing better than it had ever done economically, and defended his tariffs that are resulting in foreign tariffs on U.S. goods. Trump asked the veterans again to deny reality:
Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening.
