ABC News reports:
In an exclusive interview with ABC Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, Trump also said that he strives to tell the truth. “Well, I try. I do try and I always want to tell the truth. When I can, I tell the truth. And sometimes it turns out to be where something happens that’s different or there’s a change, but I always like to be truthful,” Trump said.
One of the issues he has with the reporting of the migrant caravan is that he believes the crowd estimates are wrong, based off his own estimates. “You have caravans coming up that look a lot larger than it’s reported actually. I’m pretty good at estimating crowd size. And I’ll tell you they look a lot bigger than people would think,” Trump said.
Part of Trump’s argument for eliminating birthright citizenship was that the U.S. was the only country where it existed. In reality, almost all of North America, South America and Central America also follow the same course of action, including Argentina, Canada and Mexico, according to the CIA’s World Factbook. When asked about the comment, Trump responded, “Well I was told that.”
