Donald Trump has what might be charitably described as a “loose relationship to the truth”, as evidenced by Pulitzer prize winning Politicfact‘s nonpartisan fact checking work on his statements.  By their tally, fully 84% of Trump’s statements are ‘half truths’ or worse.

The American electorate doesn’t trust politicians to tell them the truth, but they will still vote for them, it seems.
