There are Trump’s everyday fabrications and then there are the whoppers. Wednesday, on a trip to Texas, Trump told one of the latter.
He toured a plant that makes Apple computers in Austin. It was a pretty routine event until the end. The New York Times reports:
“Mr. Trump walked in front of the news cameras and took credit for the plant, suggesting it had opened that day. “For me, this is a very special day,” he said. Mr. Cook stood next to him, stone-faced.
“The plant has been making Apple computers since 2013.“
Apple CEO Tim Cook, standing next to the president, did not correct him.
