On Monday, President Donald Trump gave a news conference, briefly interrupted by a shooting just outside the White House grounds.
Commenters on social media slammed the president for his lengthy and partisan speech, and pointed out a number of lies and false claims.
The Secret Service stopped Trump from lying for a few minutes. A nice break for the country.

Trump says the WH would be the cheapest way to go to hold his acceptance of the nomination. What he didn’t say is that it’s the most profitable place to hold as he’s already begun jacking up prices for his Trump Hotel in DC. What a GD fraud

Millions are out of work
Millions can't afford rent or their mortgage
Schools don't have enough resources
There's not enough testing
So naturally Trump's priority is to help the top 1%. https://t.co/wnjlIoBeWj

Trump literally just lied five times in under 2 minutes and went unchallenged by The White House press.

Trump says if Biden wins the election, China, NK, and Iran will own us. He prefers we continue along our journey to speaking Russian.

"We've taken in 10s of billions of dollars from China," @realDonaldTrump says.
THIS IS STILL A LIE.
