AP FACT CHECK: Trump spreads distortions at Davos

By COLLIN BINKLEY and JOSH BOAK

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump spread distorted information about the U.S. economy and his administration’s involvement with historically black colleges in a preening performance Tuesday at the Davos economic conference in the Swiss Alps.

A sampling of his remarks:

TRUMP, on historically black colleges and universities: “I saved HBCUs. We saved them. They were going out and we saved them.”

THE FACTS: That’s a big stretch.

Trump signed a law in December restoring money that lapsed for several months when Congress failed to reauthorize some $255 million in financing on time. The money came back because Senate education leaders reached a compromise on a broader dispute that had entangled financing for black schools.

Two things came to mind when I read this article, his lies are up to around 16,000 and counting and the senate republican cover-up is in the works, so he jets off to look like a complete ass....................again
And why would anyone stand near or up with someone who has been Impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors.............I keep forgetting most of these assholes own the world.......................and then there is that asshole Wibur Ross staring at the camera................................

2. Just curious...

1. When did Donny decide to go to Davos?

2. When was the date of the Senate trial announced?

Just wondering if he wanted to be overseas in order to have more "options" just in case some Senators should decide to turn on him and blow the lid off this thing. In Davos he's a lot closer to Mother Russia.
