White House says Trump's intent is never to lie

Source: The Hill | May 28, 2020 | Marty Johnson

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday defended a pair of tweets from President Trump that contained unfounded claims about mail-in voting and said the president aimed to always be truthful.

Reporters asked McEnany several times during Thursday’s White House briefing about the tweets posted earlier this week that earned Trump his first fact check from Twitter.

The warning labels on the president’s tweets have drawn considerable ire from the White House and its conservative allies.

“Are you saying that [Trump] has never lied to the public before?” a reporter asked McEnany.

“His intent is always to give truthful information to American people,” the press secretary replied.

McEnany also went on the offensive during the briefing, saying that “no one that should be fact-checked more than the mainstream media.”

    If Trump never intends to lie, why is he spreading a long ago debunked conspiracy theory about a dead employee in Scarborough”s former congressional office in Florida? The man knows the conspiracy theory is phony. He knows every conspiracy theory he has spread around is phony. The man doesn’t know how to tell the truth.

    Kayleigh explained the other day that Trump is just repeating what he has heard. Knowing that something is a lie and just repeating the lie is not lying in TrumpWorld. Or something like that. If you think about what comes out of Trump’s puppets too much you will lose your mind.
