In US news and current events today, we’re reviewing claims that Trump made in his SOTU address to provide a proper fact check on whether the claims he made were true, false, or misleading. Here are just a few of them:

CLAIM: “We will always protect patients with preexisting conditions.”
THE FACTS: Trump has spent his entire presidency fighting to reverse Obamacare, which ensures the protection of pre-existing conditions. He’s now fighting to declare Obamacare unconstitutional in court, and has provided zero evidence that he will protect pre-existing conditions.

CLAIM: “I am thrilled to report to you tonight that our economy is the best it has ever been.”

THE FACTS: Economic growth has been higher many times before including under Obama and in the late 1990s.

CLAIM: “As we speak, a long, tall, and powerful wall is being built. We have now completed over 100 miles and have over 500 miles fully completed in a very short period of time.”

THE FACTS: Only a single mile of new wall has been built under Trump according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Virtually all of the other ‘new wall’ Trump mentioned are replacements of barriers that were in place before Trump.

CLAIM: “Real median household income is now at the highest level ever recorded!”

THE FACTS: The all-time high of $63,476 was in 1999.

CLAIM: Under my administration, 7 million Americans have come off food stamps.

THE FACTS: Yes, Americans have come off food stamps but largely because Trump has kicked them off, by making it harder for ‘able-bodied’ adults to qualify.
