CNN fact-checks Trump’s false claims during rally speech in Waco

Former US President and current presidential candidate Donald Trump has repeated false claims during a rally speech in Waco, Texas, according to a fact-check conducted by CNN reporters Tara Subramaniam and Daniel Dale. During the speech, Trump made unsubstantiated attacks on the integrity of the criminal investigations into his conduct in various matters, including the Manhattan district attorney’s probe of hush money payments to an adult film performer. The fact-check found several inaccuracies in Trump’s claims, including his repeated assertion that the 2020 election was rigged and his claim that the US had a $600 billion trade deficit with China. Other inaccuracies found included Trump’s statement that he completed the border wall and his assertion that before he was president, the US was unable to deport “really bad people.”
