WASHINGTON D.C –  United States President Donald Trump has made 8,158 false or misleading claims since taking office, according to a media report.

The report came a day after Mr Trump completed two years in office on Sunday. The President averaged nearly 5.9 false or misleading claims a day in his first year in office.

But he hit nearly 16.5 a day in his second year, almost triple the pace, The Washington Post reported.

The paper quoted The Fact Checker’s database — that analyses, categorises and tracks every suspect statement uttered by the president — for its report.

According to the Fact Checker’s database, Mr Trump has made 8,158 “false or misleading claims” since taking office. That includes an astonishing 6000-plus such claims in the president’s second year, the paper said.
