I think Trump had the most states won since Reagan. Some states have few people so they do not have the number of votes. I do not know if he did this, but I am guessing this may be what he means. He just isn't saying it correctly.


Nah, I just Googled this. Apparently in 1984, Reagan won FORTY NINE states. That must have been insane to watch! Trump definitely didn't out win him in states.


I said since Reagan. in my post. I remember Reagan winning the election, I watched a lot of elections over the years. I liked Kennedy's too, that is the first one I remember watching with my parents when I was a kid.

I was too young in 1984 to understand. It must have been neat to watch such a sweep. The elections I've watched have never happened like that. I can't imagine living in a world where nearly everyone was on the same page like that.

Here is the video all 41 seconds..since you don't have the time.

‘Why should Americans trust you?’ NBC reporter confronts Trump over his credibility



After Trump called on him to ask a question, NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander pointed out that Trump made an inaccurate statement in boasting that his electoral college margin was larger than any president since Ronald Reagan, before proceeding to name several presidents who had larger victory margins than Trump since Reagan.

Most notably, Trump said he won 306 electoral college votes, when in fact he only won 304. “Why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information they receive as being fake when you’re providing information that’s fake?” Alexander asked. “I don’t know. I was given that information,” Trump said.

The press conference was 77 minutes - of course I don't have time to re-watch it. The OP is responsible for their own threads. That's how it works here.

And that's still NOT a video of TRUMP saying what you claim. It's a reporter asking a disjointed question and the video cuts out over half the words. Once again, where is the video of what you claim happened. I'm happy to jump on Trump Lied Again bandwagon as soon as I see the lie.

I thought it was amusing when he said "I can take bad press. Nobody can take bad press better than me".

That may be the biggest whopper of all. He wants people to love him so much. It's kind of sad really.

I think Trump had ADHD as a kid, and that has evolved into OCD as an adult.

He officially 'left' school at 13, then went to the NYMA

where he finished eighth grade and high school.
Trump was an energetic child; his parents hoped that the discipline at the military school would allow him to channel his energy in a positive manner.

In 1983, Fred Trump told an interviewer that Donald "was a pretty rough fellow when he was small".[19]

Don't forget, this was in the early sixties were ADHD wasn't recognised.
'Troublesome, rowdy kids' were just seen as that... full of energy, but 'troublesome', and no more.

I thnk that he threw himself into studies, the family business and the energy needed for that, managed to mask his underlying issues.

As he has gotten older, well, things are a bit harder to hide; even more so now.

OCD

LOL, it's been debunked huh? He won the election. Get over it. You people are losing your mind.


And that has anything to do with what the original poster was saying, how?

Get your mind out of the political gutter or you'll slowly end up losing your mind to stupidity.

If he was in the old folks home i would find this amusing.

you know, "Keep your nurses close keep your pharmacist closer"
Seriously tho I'm not sure he means to lie, maybe he loses track and then opens his mouth and the lies come out.
