Tired of the bad press, the White House apparently sent Eric Trump to Fox News to create another narrative – one that’s false.
Eric Trump blamed “Washington” and its incompetence for the President’s lack of achievements, then delivered this lie: President Trump, his son says, “hasn’t left the White House in five weeks.”
Of course, that’s false. The President went to Mar-a-Lago for the weekend, and even bragged about golfing in Florida on Twitter:

Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’
CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.
"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."
"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"
Trump causes widespread shock by refusing to call out white supremacy at first 2020 debate
President Donald Trump was asked to call out white supremacy during the first 2020 general election presidential debate -- and refused to do so.
Instead of calling out white supremacists, Trump instead said, “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by!”
Here's some of what people were saying about Trump's views on racism:
Trump defiantly refuses to condemn extremists groups at debate: ‘Proud Boys, stand back and stand by’
President Donald Trump on Tuesday refused an opportunity to disavow right-wing extremists and white supremacist groups.
At his first 2020 presidential debate, Trump was asked if he would speak out against the extremist groups.
"Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacist and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down?" moderator Chris Wallace asked the president.
"I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing," Trump complained. "I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace."
"Do it, sir," Wallace said.
"Say it," Democratic candidate Joe Biden chimed in.
