President Donald Trump claimed without evidence on Friday that past presidents have privately confided to him that they regret not building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
…Asked if Clinton told Trump that he should have built a border wall, Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña said, “He did not. ”
…Bush spokesman Freddy Ford also said the two men had not discussed the matter.
…Obama has consistently blasted Trump’s pledge to build a border wall.
…Trump has a long track record of exaggerating, embellishing or outright not telling the truth. Fact-checkers have identified thousands of false claims since Trump took office.
“I think it’s well-known that the incumbent president is very careless with the truth,” former president Carter said last year in an interview with CBS News.
