“Russian 'collusion' was just an excuse by the Democrats for having lost the Election!”Fact Check:
Trump repeatedly claims the Russia investigation is made up, but the information on Russian efforts to sway the 2016 election was developed by the intelligence community and published in a declassified report, in which the agencies said they had "high confidence" it was correct.

“Ours is the biggest ever passed and they couldn't get anything passed.”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 — smaller than two tax cuts passed under Obama.

“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.

“Nucor has just announced an $85 million upgrade in Marion. By the way, I hate to say this, they're doing $750 million in Florida -- but we won't mention that tonight. ”Fact Check:
Nucor announced its plan to invest in February of 2017. In other words, they announced it well over a year ago — well before Trump announced steel tariffs. There is no evidence of a planned $750 million investment. Nucor did announce plans to build a $240 million dollar plant.

“Because now African-American unemployment is at the best number in the history of our country.”Fact Check:
The black unemployment rate has been calculated only since 1972. Although the black unemployment rate was at an all-time-low 5.9 percent in May, it had risen to 6.6 percent in July. That was still significantly higher than the overall unemployment rate of 3.9 percent.

“New unemployment claims are at the lowest level in almost half a century, think of that.”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."

“For years and years we've been protecting these countries. They're making a fortune. They've had very little military cost. We have the biggest military cost in the world. Most of it goes to protecting outside countries, some of whom don't even like us, some of whom don't even like us.”Fact Check:
The U.S. contributes about 22 percent to NATO's direct funding. It's more likely that Trump 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 of its global responsibilities and higher GDP. The idea that the U.S. should be reimbursed or the protections of the alliance are one sided is very misguided. The only time NATO's Article 5 resolution has been enacted was to support the American led War on Terror.

“For instance, we got rid of the individual mandate from Obamacare, which is a disaster.”Fact Check:
The Affordable Care Act is expected to remain stable for the foreseeable future, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Moreover, Trump only backed off of his pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare after he supported the failed attempts in both chambers of Congress to push through the legislation.
