Trump perplexed as journalist calls him out for lying

Editorial: Keep protecting children of undocumented immigrants Obama trumped the media

In 1988, President George H.W. Bush, a Republican, drew 426 electoral votes.

"We got 306 because people came out and voted like they've never seen before so that's the way it goes", the president said. Instead, he blamed his repeated false claims about his electoral margin on someone else, a person he says gave him false information.

"Well, I don't know, I was given that information", he continued, adding his win was "a very substantial victory".

"You said today that you had the biggest electoral margin since Ronald Reagan", Alexander began, reading off a list of several recent previous presidents who had larger margins than Trump. And that was significantly less than Obama's 2008 showing, when he won 365 electoral votes.

"Why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information they receive as being fake when you're providing information that's fake?" NBC's Peter Alexander asked after mentioning the above fact.

When asked about the false claim during the press conference, Trump said he was just saying what he was told.

"You're the president", Alexander replied.

Alexander, a correspondent for NBC News, sought to correct Trump on those figures, and pressed him to explain how he could call reporting by outlets like The New York Times and CNN "fake news" while using inaccurate figures himself.

"A new Rasmussen poll just came out just a very short while ago has our approval rating at 55 percent and going up", said Trump in the White House East Room. "I see [news] stories of chaos, chaos, yet it is the exact opposite".
