唐納德-特朗普2024年。對前總統的事實核查

他只簡短地提到了他被揭穿的2020年選舉舞弊的說法,但談到了他在代言方面的成功,他的邊境牆和目前的經濟狀況。

在談到最近的中期選舉時,這些數字似乎或多或少是準確的。選舉結束後,保守派出版物《華盛頓考察家》(Washington Examiner)將數字統計為233個勝利和28個失敗。

但這種說法需要一些背景。這些勝利中的大部分是在安全的席位上。輸掉的比賽包括搖擺州的一些關鍵比賽。特朗普先生支持了亞利桑那州州長和參議員、密歇根州和賓夕法尼亞州州長以及內華達州參議員競選中的落選者。

"當病毒襲擊我們的海岸時,我採取了果斷行動,拯救了生命和美國經濟,"特朗普先生說。"而到了同年10月[2020年],美國以有史以來第一快的經濟復甦速度轟然回歸。"

這同樣是一個相當準確的說法,但需要一些背景。2020年初,由科維德大流行和封鎖造成的經濟衰退很深,但非常迅速,特朗普政府將救濟金注入了數百萬美國人的手中。

特朗普先生還重複了關於美國經濟實力的其他說法。我們在2020年大選前對其中一些進行了評估--簡單地說,不是所有的說法都能成立。

其中大部分是對現有圍欄或牆壁的替換。只有80英里的新屏障是在以前沒有的地方建造的。其中大部分不是磚牆或混凝土牆,而是系柱式圍欄。

紙質選票和一個晚上的計票?

談到選舉,特朗普先生確實重複了兩個在否認選舉的人中已經很流行的觀點--選票應該用紙做,所有選票都應該在選舉日計算。


He made only brief reference to his debunked claims of 2020 election fraud, but talked about his endorsement successes, his border wall and the current state of the economy.

The numbers appear to be more or less accurate when it comes to the recent mid-terms. After the election, the Washington Examiner, a conservative publication, put the tally at 233 victories and 28 losses.

But the claim needs some context. Most of those wins were in safe seats. And the losses included some crucial races in swing states. Mr Trump backed the losing candidates for governor and senator of Arizona, the governors of Michigan and Pennsylvania, and in the Nevada senate race.

"When the virus hit our shores, I took decisive action and saved lives and the US economy," Mr Trump said. "And by October of the same year [2020], America was roaring back with the number one fastest economic recovery ever recorded."

Again that's a fairly accurate statement but needs some context. The recession in early 2020, caused by the Covid pandemic and lockdowns, was deep but very quick, and the Trump administration pumped relief into the hands of millions of Americans.

Mr Trump also repeated other claims about US economic strength. We evaluated some of these just before the 2020 election - put simply, not all of them stack up.

Most of that was replacements for existing fences or walls. Just 80 miles of new barriers were built where there were none before. Much of it is not a brick or concrete wall but bollard fencing.

Paper ballots and one night of counting?

When it comes to elections, Mr Trump did repeat two ideas that have become popular among election deniers - that ballots should be made of paper and all votes should be counted on election day.
