Last week, The New York Times published a compilation of every one of Trump’s lies since he was inaugurated in January.

The lies include things like, “Well, we are protecting pre-existing conditions. And it’ll be very good – bit as good on pre-existing conditions as Obamacare.” (Trump’s health care bill actually weakens protections for people with pre-existing conditions). And, “I wasn’t a fan of Iraq. I didn’t want to go into Iraq.” (Trump was actually for an invasion before he was against it).

Each lie is labeled with a date and short explanation. As the Times states, “Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them.”

The media giant also provided color-coded calendars showing the days Trump told a lie vs. the days he didn’t. According to the Times, Trump told public lies or falsehoods every day for his first 40 days in office. “Since then, he has said something untrue on at least 74 of 113 days.” Trump’s longer periods of going without making untrue statements directly coincide with his vacations.

Meanwhile, Trump’s popularity continues to shrink, while the public’s mistrust in him continues to grow.
