Donald Trump delivered a speech Wednesday billed as a broadside attack on presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy and economic record. Trump called the address an opportunity to “discuss the failed policies and bad judgment of Crooked Hillary Clinton.”
But his speech was a bungled unintentionally hilarious attempt at running for the White House that was based on right wing conspiracy theories and lies. On top of it all, Trump sounded sedated and completely clueless.
NBC’s political and investigative teams fact-checked some of the claims in Donald Trump’s speech.
CLAIM: “It all started with her bad judgment in supporting the War in Iraq in the first place. Though I was not in government service, I was among the earliest to criticize the rush to war, and yes, even before the war ever started.”
The facts: Politifact ranks this often repeated claim False.
