“Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn’t matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!”Fact Check:
Trump long maintained there was no collusion, but now he claims collusion is not even a crime. He's playing games with words. Conspiracy to defraud the government is certainly a crime. No evidence has emerged of any collusion between the Democrats and Russia, whereas evidence has emerged of many contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russian-linked individuals.

“We're having a stock market like just about they've never had before. Ever before. We've picked up... Piers, we've picked up $8 trillion in value during the course of 12 months...”Fact Check:
This is a flip-flop for Trump. Before he was elected, he dismissed the stock-market performance under Obama as “artificial” and “a bubble." Moreover, the U.S. rise in 2017 was not unique. When looking at the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index, it’s clear U.S. stocks haven’t rallied as robustly as their foreign equivalents. Moreover, with each 1,000-level increase, the accomplishment gets increasingly less impressive.

“We passed the biggest tax cut in American history.”Fact Check:
Trump’s tax cut is nearly 0.9 percent of GDP, much smaller than Reagan’s tax cut in 1981, which was 2.89 percent of GDP. Trump’s tax cut is the eighth largest since 1918 — and even smaller than two tax cuts passed under Barack Obama.

“Plants are moving back to Michigan, and moving back -- in big numbers -- and they're moving back to Ohio, coming into Iowa in a lot of different ways.”Fact Check:
Trump keeps taking credit for projects that were long in the works before he became president. For example, he repeatedly claims credit for Ford’s decision to abandon its plans to open a factory in Mexico and instead expand its Michigan plant. But analysts say Ford’s decision has more to do with the company’s long-term goal — particularly, its plans to invest in electric vehicles — than the administration. It’s easier for companies to find highly skilled workers to build new products, such as electric cars, in the United States than in Mexico. Fiat Chrysler's plan to invest $1 billion for a factory in Michigan had been in the works for more than a year and had nothing to do with Trump.

“African American, Hispanic, and Asian American unemployment has reached the lowest levels ever recorded in our country's history -- the lowest levels. Unemployment -- lowest level.”Fact Check:
Unemployment has been steadily declining since its peak in 2010. Moreover, Trump now uses data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment rate to say this, which is a flip-flop from his previous claims dismissing the BLS unemployment rate as "nonsense."

“Obamacare has been a totally disastrous situation.”Fact Check:
Credible estimates suggest the health-care law boosted the number of people with health insurance by 20 million. The Congressional Budget Office said that the individual market would be stable in most markets at least for the next ten years under the Affordable Care Act, though the Trump administration has taken steps to weaken it that have raised premiums.

“We were treated very unfairly. The United States was treated very, very unfairly because we're shouldering anywhere from 70 to 90 percent of the cost of NATO. That's not fair. It's not fair.”Fact Check:
The U.S. contributes about 22 percent to NATO's direct funding. It's more likely that he is talking about indirect funding. In that case, the U.S. spent about 67 percent of all defense spending by members of the alliance — but that is money countries spent on their own defense. The U.S. share is much higher because it has global responsibilities.

“The African American unemployment rate has achieved the lowest level in recorded history. African American unemployment is the best it’s ever been in the history of our country.”Fact Check:
This is a flip-flop. During the 2016 campaign, Trump used to claim a Four-Pinocchio stat that 58 percent of African-American youth was unemployed. The official Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment rate for black youth at the time was 19.2 percent — about one-third of the rate used by Trump. Now that he’s president, Trump appears all too happy to cite the unemployment rate for African Americans, bragging that it’s the best since the turn of the century. We’re pleased the president is now using accurate statistics but it’s absurd to suggest, as he does to audiences, that he had anything to do with these numbers.
