Wednesday on the PBS NewsHour, Yamiche Alcindor joins Judy Woodruff to fact-check some of President Trump’s claims.\nPresident Donald Trump made several misleading statements Tuesday during an hour-long campaign-style speech in Nashville. Trump traveled to Tennessee in part to boost the Senate candidacy of Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.\nBut Trump\u2019s support for Blackburn, who is running to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was largely overshadowed by criticism that he exaggerated his record in office. Here\u2019s a look at four misleading or outright false assertions Trump made in his speech.\nOn the size of the GOP tax cut…\nTrump said the tax law Republicans passed last year — the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 — was the \u201clargest tax cuts and reform in American history.\u201d The president has made this claim several times before, including during a White House event last December celebrating the passage of the tax bill. But when measured in inflation-adjusted dollars, the tax cut is the fourth-largest in U.S. history, according to Politifact.\nAnd by another key metric — the size of a tax cut plan as a percentage of the nation\u2019s gross domestic product, or GDP — Trump\u2019s tax plan trails several tax cuts enacted over the past seven decades. By that measurement, the largest tax cut in U.S. history was the Economic Recovery Tax Cut of 1981, passed under President Ronald Reagan.\nOn rising wages…\nTrump claimed Tuesday that \u201cwages for the first time in many years are finally going up.\u201d It\u2019s true that wages have increased on Trump\u2019s watch: according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta\u2019s wage growth tracker, average annual wages in 2017 grew by nearly 3 percent. But the data shows wages also increased under former President Barack Obama — including in 2016 — disproving Trump\u2019s claim that wages are going up for the \u201cfirst time in many years.\u201d\nOn who\u2019s paying for a border wall…\nReprising one of his favorite lines from the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said that \u201cMexico\u2019s going to pay for the wall\u201d along the U.S.-Mexico border. Mexican President Enrique Pe\u00f1a Nieto, took to Twitter to fact-check Trump in real-time. \u201cNO. Mexico will NEVER pay for a wall. Not now, not ever,\u201d Pe\u00f1a Nieto wrote. He has said that before as well, including after a meeting with Trump in Mexico during the 2016 election.\nOn the border crossings crackdown…\nTrump also said, \u201cWe have borders down 40 percent,\u201d an apparent reference to illegal border crossings. It\u2019s a claim Trump has made several times since taking office. The number of border crossings did drop during Trump\u2019s first few months in office. But according to a fact-check this month by the Associated Press, border crossings in the past year are up 20 percent, based on the number of arrests by Border Patrol agents. The New York Times has also found Trump frequently exaggerates or cherry picks data on illegal border crossings.
