In an event meant to show appreciation for first responders, Donald Trump again bragged about his record, falsely claiming that he has more achievements at this point in his presidency than his predecessors.
“We took a big, big beautiful ship that we’re turning around, and a lot of good things are happening,” Trump told the group of first responders before spewing the laughable lie that he has signed a record-breaking amount of legislation during his time in office.
“I believe — and you would have to ask those folks who will know the real answer — we have more legislation passed, including the record was Harry Truman a long time ago. And we broke that record, so we got a lot done, Trump said.
According to a GovTrack analysis, though, just the opposite is true: Trump has signed the least number of bills of any president since Dwight Eisenhower, who was in office from 1953 to 1961.
Here’s how Trump stacks up, and it’s not even a close contest:
To sum up today’s event in Florida: The president didn’t just make a first responders event all about himself, like usual, but he continued to tell one of his favorite lies that he’s the most accomplished president in modern history.
Donald Trump should do the country favor and just stay on the golf course.
