    .. 10 Lies From Trump's News Conference With Theresa May ..



    WHAT TRUMP SAID
    In Germany, we have 52,000 troops.

    THE FACTS
    This is exaggerated.
    In its most recent report, the Pentagon's Defense Manpower Data Center said that 34,821 American troops were stationed in Germany as of March 31.

    WHAT TRUMP SAID
    Well, if you remember, I was opening Turnberry the day before Brexit and we had an unbelievably large number of reporters there because everybody was there, I guess, because of Brexit and they all showed up on the ninth hole, overlooking the ocean, and I said what's going on And all they wanted to talk about was Brexit. They asked for my opinion. And I think you will agree that I said I think Brexit will happen, and it did happen.
    THE FACTS
    False. Mr. Trump visited the Turnberry golf resort in Scotland on June 24, 2016 the day after Britain voted to leave the European Union. At a news conference, he called the outcome a great thing and also tweeted several times that day about the Brexit vote and its parallels to the American presidential election.On June 22, the day before the Brexit vote, Mr. Trump was in New York, where he delivered a 41-minute speech criticizing Hillary Clinton. He did not mention Brexit.

    OTHER CLAIMS

    Mr. Trump also repeated several other claims during the news conference at Chequers, Mrs. May's official country residence, that The New York Times has previously debunked:
    ■ He misleadingly claimed that the United States pays 90 percent of the cost of NATO (his figure is overstated and conflates different measures of the alliance's military spending).

    ■ He falsely claimed that the United States has become an oil exporter, which would not have happened under the past regime (it has been exporting oil for decades, but is still not a net exporter).
    ■ He exaggerated the United States trade deficit with China as $500 billion (it was about $336 billion in 2017).

    ■ He exaggerated the United States trade deficit with the European Union as $151 billion (it is $101 billion).

    ■ He claimed that North Korea has stopped nuclear testing and has blown up test sites (North Korea blew up one site, but independent analysts have yet to verify that the destruction was complete).

    ■He falsely claimed military spending by NATO members was going down before he became president (spending began to increase before Mr. Trump took office).

    ■ He misleadingly claimed that Germany imports up to 70 percent of its energy from Russia (Germany relies on Russia for natural gas, but gets just 9 percent of their total energy from Russia.
