After being called out by a reporter about his false claim that he signed into law the Veterans Choice bill, President Donald Trump swiftly ended a news conference with reporters at his Trump National Golf Club Bedminster on Saturday.
Trump was called out for lying about signing Barack Obama’s Veterans Choice bill — as he has done over 140 times.
But unlike many other times when he has lied about the topic, Trump was fact-checked to his face over his false claim by CBS White House correspondent Paula Reid.
Unable to respond, Trump abruptly fled his press conference.
