Fact Check: Trump’s false claim on San Bernardino

“In San Bernardino, many people saw the bombs all over the apartment.” 

–Donald Trump

THE FACT CHECKER | There is no evidence this was the case. There have been unconfirmed second- or third-hand reports — a friend of a friend of a neighbor — that a neighbor claimed to have noticed suspicious activity but did not report anything for fear of doing racial profiling. The religion of this supposed neighbor is unknown, but presumably a fear of racial profiling would suggest the neighbor was not Muslim.
