Below are more than a dozen false, questionable or misleading claims Trump made over the course of the 75-minute press conference -- as well as a few that are backed up by the facts.
FACT: Trump guessed wrong: His electoral college margin was smaller than President Obama’s in 2012. When a reporter questioned Trump's claim, he later said, "I don't know. I was just given that information -- it was a big margin."
TRUMP: "I think we're setting a record, or close to a record, in the time of approval of a cabinet."
FACT: Not true. Trump has more unconfirmed Cabinet nominees at the four-week mark than any another other President in history. But, here's a point of reference: President Obama’s cabinet was not complete until April 28, 2009, when his pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, was confirmed.
TRUMP: "Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars."
TRUMP: "Jobs are pouring out of the country."
FACT: Here are the stats: The number of jobs in the U.S. has increased every month since October 2010, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Still, the U.S. has lost nearly 5 million manufacturing jobs over the last two decades, according to BLS data.
FACT: Trump was referring to Russia’s nuclear power agency buying a Toronto-based company that operates on land worth roughly 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity -- not actual uranium, according to Politifact. Clinton, who was Secretary of State at the time, couldn’t approve or block the deal. Politifact rated it "Mostly False."
TRUMP: "We had to go quicker than we thought because of the bad decision we received from a circuit that has been overturned at a record number. I've heard 80 percent. I find that hard to believe. That's just a number I heard, that they’re overturned 80 percent of the time."
FACT: According to a 2010 study published in Landslide, the 9th Circuit had an 80 percent reversal rate from 1999 to 2008. It was the top spot for a regional circuit court. A recent analysis of cases from 2010 to 2015 by SCOTUSBlog concluded that the 9th Circuit also has an 80 percent reversal rate, but that was third place -- behind the 6th Circuit with 87 percent and 11th Circuit with 85 percent.
TRUMP: "People came out and voted like they've never seen before."
FACT: Again, this isn't correct. Around 60 percent of eligible Americans turned out to vote in 2016, according to estimates from the University of Florida’s U.S. Elections Project. According to researchers at the University of California at Santa Barbara, the highest voter turnout in American history was the election of 1876 with a voter turnout rate of nearly 82 percent.
TRUMP: "There has been a tremendous surge of optimism in the business world."
TRUMP: "People [addressing reporters], you have a lower approval rate than congress, I think that’s right ... I heard lower than Congress."
TRUMP: "I got 306 electoral college votes."
FACT: Not the case. Trump received 304 votes in the Electoral College. Two electors who were projected to go to him went rogue and voted for other candidates.
TRUMP: "The press -- the public doesn't believe you people anymore."
FACT: Again, the aforementioned Gallup found that only 32 percent of Americans say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media -- a new low. That includes 51 percent of Democrats, 30 percent of independents and only 14 percent of Republicans.
TRUMP: "We have made incredible progress. I don't think there's ever been a president elected, who in this short period of time has done what we've done ... Again, I say it, there has never been a presidency that's done so much in such a short period of time."
FACT: Another overstatement. At this point in his presidency, Trump has signed 12 executive orders vs. 15 executive orders for Obama. Granted, Obama had signed three bills into law, while Trump has signed four. However, one of Trump's was a necessary rule change for his pick for Secretary of Defense. But one of Obama’s major achievements came on Feb. 17 when he signed his broad economic stimulus law.
TRUMP: "He [Alexander Acosta] is a member and has been a member of the National Labor Relations Board and has been through Senate confirmation three times."
FACT: Acosta is not currently a member of the National Labor Relations Board. He served as a member from 2002 to 2003.
TRUMP: "Since my election, Ford announced it will abandon its plans to build a new factory in Mexico and will instead invest $700 million in Michigan creating many, many jobs. Fiat Chrysler announced it will invest $1 billion in Ohio and Michigan, creating 2,000 new American jobs."
FACT: In early January, Ford and Fiat did announce plans to expand and invest in U.S. manufacturing. Fiat Chrysler made a point of saying the decision was not the result of conversations with the incoming White House. Instead many economics and analysts cite that fact that both car companies had long planned to invest in electric cars, which are easier to build in the U.S. and had received tax incentives in previous years to invest in fuel-economy technology.
