Donald Trump
Trump brags about generous donations, but apparently fails to follow through.
The Washington Post found that of the 167 charities to which Trump had pledged money since 2008, only one donation was actually on the books -- for less than $10,000.
In May 2016, under pressure from the news media, Trump made good on a pledge he made to veterans, four months earlier:  For 15 years Trump has publicly pledged to donate through his various enterprises: “The Apprentice.” Trump Vodka. Trump University. Etc.If he had honored all those pledges, his gifts to charity would have topped $8.5 million. He set up a foundation to funnel donations, but hasn't donated to it since 2009.
Pope Francis
Pope Francis says Church should apologize for discriminating against gays, and ask for forgiveness.
Francis recalled Church teachings that homosexuals “should not be discriminated against. They should be respected, accompanied pastorally.” He clarified if a gay person has good will and looks for God, who are we to judge? Read what Jesus said.
Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton is innocent of any wrongdoing in Benghazi.
After spending more than two years and $7 million, the House Select Committee on Benghazi released a report Tuesday that found — like eight investigations before it — no evidence of wrongdoing by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or other members of the Obama administration.
Donald Trump
June Trump Truthfulness average is "Mostly False."
As of June 10, 2016, PolitiFact has reviewed 154 statements by Donald Trump. Twelve (12) were true or mostly true. Forty nine (49) were 1/2 True of Mostly-False.  And Ninety three (93) were False or Pants-on-Fire. Below are just a few:

Trump claims crime statistics show blacks kill 81 percent of white homicide victims.
A day after a black activist was kicked and punched by voters at a Donald Trump rally in Alabama, Trump tweeted an image packed with racially loaded with fictitious murder statistics.  The stats show that 82% of whites are killed by other whites -Not 16% as Trump stated; and 15% of whites are killed by blacks- not the 82% Trump fabricated.
Donald Trump
A Trump television ad shows Mexicans swarming over "our southern border."
The footage used to support this outrageous point actually shows African migrants streaming over a border fence between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla, more than 5,000 miles away.
Donald Trump
Trump says 4.9% unemployment numbers are phony and that the real numbers are "probably 28, 29, as high as 35. In fact, I even heard recently 42 percent."
No matter how you calculate unemployment rates, Trumps numbers are totally fabricated.
Donald Trump
Trump says that the 2016 federal omnibus spending bill "funds illegal immigrants coming in and through your border, right through Phoenix."
In fact this bill actually funds the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the very agency tasked with keeping undocumented immigrants out.
Donald Trump
Trump repeatedly says,"We're the highest taxed nation in the world."
The United States is 31st among Industrialized nations in tax revenue as percentage of GDP (26.0%).  We are 17th regarding Corporate tax revenue (2.6%). and we are 19th as percentage of GDP Tax revenue per capita ($14,204).
Donald Trump
Trump says, "You have to be a citizen to vote," but with same-day voter registration, "you have places where people just walk in and vote."
Some states do have same-day voter registration, but people have to provide the same level of identification as when registering in advance. Experts told us there is no additional risk of non-citizens casting ballots in states with same-day voter registration, nor is there any evidence that this occurs.
Donald Trump
Trump says that Hillary Clinton "wants to abolish the Second Amendment."
 She has repeatedly said she wants to protect the right to bear arms while enacting measures to prevent gun violence.  There is no evidence she wants to abolish the Second Amendment,
Jennifer Schilling Dem Ws
Under Donald Trump's tax plan, the wealthiest 0.1 percent would get more tax relief than the bottom 60 percent of taxpayers combined."
Reports from respected nonpartisan research groups calculate that the 0.1 percent -- those making more than $3.7 million per year -- would receive 18 percent of the tax cuts under Trump’s proposal. The bottom 60 percent of taxpayers, meanwhile, would enjoy only 16.4 percent of the cuts.
Hillary Clinton Presidential Candidate
Hillary said, "We now do have evidence" that Donald Trump is being used as a recruiting tool for terrorists.
That wasn't the case the first time Clinton claimed this. But now two different terror groups have used Trump's words in propaganda videos.  In one case jihadist propaganda, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. urges American Muslims to leave the United States and join ISIS.
Donald Trump
Trump claims, "There are places in America that are among the most dangerous in the world." The crime numbers are "worse in places like Oakland or Ferguson"." Seriously."
With threats around the world like war, terrorism, kidnappings, and other violence, U.S. cities are nowhere near the most dangerous in the world. Four American cities — though not Oakland or Ferguson — have some of the highest murder rates in the world. However, with vast differences in reporting, experts told us homicide rates alone are not enough to gauge whether a city is dangerous or not.
Donald Trump
Trump says it "is Hillary Clinton's agenda" to "release the violent criminals from jail. She wants them all released."
Clinton supports easing how the criminal justice system treats nonviolent offenders. Trumps claim is pure fabrication.
Hillary Clinton Presidential Candidate
Hillary claims that "Donald Trump says climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese."
Trump has repeatedly called climate change a "hoax" in speeches, tweets and media appearances, and while he hasn’t necessarily repeated the charge that China "invented" climate change, he has said as recently as Jan. 18, 2016, that action on climate change "is done for the benefit of China."
Donald Trump
Trump says 25 percent of U.S. Muslims "agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad."
Trump is referring to a highly questionable poll conducted by the Center for Security Policy. Experts question the methodology and the dubiously large percentages of respondents who said they were unaware of ISIS or al-Qaida. Even an official with the Center for Security Policy cautioned against generalizing the poll results to the entire Muslim-American community.
Donald Trump
Trump said, regarding the Iraq War, "I was the one that said, ‘Don’t go, don’t do it, you’re going to destabilize the Middle East.’ "
Trump made this claim in the Feb. 6, 2016, New Hampshire GOP debate, but in fact he never spoke out against the war until a year after the invasion. Trump now says, "We should bomb the oil", even if it hurts the atmosphere, and "take the oil".
Donald Trump
Trump says, "We’re spending tremendous amounts of money to educate our kids. In the world, we're No. 1 per pupil by a factor of four."
There is good evidence to support his overall idea, that the United States gets less bang for its education buck than other developed countries. But Trump overstated U.S. spending by 500 percent. We’re not No. 1 in spending, by several different ways of measuring.
Donald Trump
Trump claims, with Obamacare, "You have no options .. you can't get competitive bidding."
That is true in about 10 percent of the counties where individuals buy their coverage on the government’s insurance exchange. In another 30 percent of counties, people have only two companies to choose between. But in 60 percent of the counties there are at least three insurance providers to compare.
