Trump Busted By Photographer For Posting Photo From 2016 To Insinuate That This Is The Support He’s Getting Now

Add this lie to the pile.

Donald Trump is trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in just about every legitimate poll, and even with the president’s favorite pollster, Rasmussen. In Arizona, a Republican stronghold, Trump is losing support fast less than two months before the election in November. The reason is simple: Trump downplayed the coronavirus while knowing how dangerous it was, and now it’s costing him support. Apparently, killing people isn’t a good strategy in winning an election.

Nothing about the former reality show star is real. Trump’s promises aren’t kept, and he has failed as president to keep Americans safe. Trump surrendered to the coronavirus pandemic without putting up a fight. But, he is fighting to stay in office by being deceptive.

Pro Publica journalist Alec MacGillis penned an article in 2016, and he took the photo that accompanied it.  The president tweeted out the photo of a slew of MAGA signs in front of a home to show support for his 2020 reelection, but MacGillis jumped in to fact-check Trump.

Twitter users had a field day.

The president held a horrifying indoor rally last night in Nevada, defying the state’s guidelines, then told his super-spreader crowd amid the raging pandemic, “If the governor comes after you, which he shouldn’t be doing, I’ll be with you all the way.” Because Trump has failed abysmally to lead by example, the pandemic has not been contained. Trump made wearing a mask political and continues to mock social distancing practices. The president is the leading cause of death in the United States, so we can see why he posted a photo from 2016.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
