The Hill reports:
President-elect Donald Trump said in an interview published Wednesday that he doesn’t like to lie. “I don’t like to lie, no,” the president-elect told Axios. “It’s not something that I would like to be doing.”
When pressed about whether it is ever OK to lie, the president-elect declined to give a response. “I don’t want to answer the question,” he said. “Because it gets to, you know, a different level than what we’re talking about for this interview.”
Trump during his presidential campaign was accused of lying about a variety of issues. The president-elect also often accuses his political opponents of lying. On Tuesday, Trump blasted Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), saying the Georgia Democrat got caught in a “pretty bad lie” when he claimed he had never boycotted a presidential inauguration before this year.
