Donald Trump: "We’re the most highly taxed nation in the world."
Published:
Description: The Truth-o-Meter says: False | Donald Trump says U.S. is 'most highly taxed nation in the world'
<br/>
<p>During a recent interview on Fox &amp; Friends, Donald Trump offered a digression on tax policy -- at times an unorthodox one, at least for a Republican. For instance, Trump said that hedge fund managers -- some of them the billionaire counted as &quot;friends&quot; -- are &quot;not paying enough tax.&quot; He also rejected a flat tax, an idea supported by some Republicans, countering that progressivity in the tax code is important. &quot;As you make a certain amount of money, I think you should have to graduate upward&quot; in tax rates, Trump said. Then he shifted gears again, articulating a ...</p> <a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/aug/28/donald-trump/donald-trump-says-us-most-highly-taxed-nation-worl/">>> More</a>  more...

<br/>
<p>Among Donald Trump&rsquo;s most talked-about immigration policies is his proposal to make Mexico pay for a border wall. Trump laid out the rationale for why Mexico would agree in an interview with CNN&rsquo;s Chris Cuomo. &quot;You know what, because they make a fortune with us,&quot; Trump explained on Aug. 19. &quot;Our companies are moving into Mexico more than almost any other place right now. We are losing our industry. We&#39;re losing our business to Mexico.&quot; We were curious about Trump&rsquo;s claim that more U.S. companies are relocating south than almost any other place in the world. (China, anyone?)

Description: The Truth-o-Meter says: Pants on Fire! | Jeb Bush: Planned Parenthood isn't involved in women's health
<br/>
<p>Planned Parenthood is not involved in women&rsquo;s health issues, said Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. At a town hall in Englewood, Colo., Aug. 25, an audience member asked Bush about his record on women&rsquo;s health, as well as what he would do for women&rsquo;s health, particularly for veterans, as president. &quot;When I was governor, we expanded those programs through community-based organizations, and that&rsquo;s something I think the federal government needs to continue to do,&quot; Bush said. &quot;I, for one, don&rsquo;t think Planned Parenthood ought to get a penny, though. And that&rsquo;s the difference because they&rsquo;re not actually doing women&rsquo;s ...</p> <a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/aug/26/jeb-bush/jeb-bush-planned-parenthood-isnt-involved-womens-h/">>> More</a>  more...
Donald Trump: &quot;Many of the great scholars say that anchor babies are not covered&quot; by the 14th Amendment.

Description: The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Trump: 'Many' scholars say 'anchor babies' aren't covered by Constitution
<br/>
<p>Donald Trump says his plan to roll back birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants will pass constitutional muster because &quot;many of the great scholars say that anchor babies are not covered.&quot; &quot;Many of the great scholars&quot; -- really? That comment caught our attention. In case you need a refresher on birthright citizenship: As it stands now, any person born on U.S. soil is a citizen -- regardless of the parents&rsquo; immigration status -- because of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment. Trump has recently advocated for pulling back citizenship for illegal immigrants&rsquo; children. Some, like Trump, refer to ...</p> <a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/aug/25/donald-trump/trump-many-scholars-say-anchor-babies-arent-covere/">>> More</a>  more...
Corey Lewandowski: Says&nbsp;&quot;there&rsquo;s 400,000&quot; anchor babies born in the United States a year, which are&nbsp;&quot;individuals coming to our country and having their children so their children can be U.S. citizens.&quot;

<br/>
<p>Donald Trump&rsquo;s proposal to end automatic citizenship for the U.S.-born children of undocumented immigrants spurred a week of talk about &quot;anchor babies,&quot; a term that some say is derogatory. Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski tried to clarify his boss&#39;&nbsp;views on CNN&rsquo;s State of the Union on Aug. 23, 2015. &quot;If you think of the term &lsquo;anchor baby,&rsquo; which is those individuals coming to our country and having their children so their children can be U.S. citizens,&quot; Lewandowski said on Aug. 23. &quot;There&rsquo;s 400,000 of those taking place on a yearly basis.

<br/>
<p>Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson suggested drones could really help the country&rsquo;s overstressed border patrol. Carson told CNN&rsquo;s Jim Acosta on State of the Union on Aug. 23, 2015, that the drones could be used for more than just surveillance along the Mexican border, potentially taking out caves that smugglers and cartels use to cross into the United States. &quot;We&#39;re not getting support from the federal government to deal with these people,&quot; he said. &quot;They&#39;re being outgunned. Fifty-six percent of that border is not under our control.&quot; There was a bit of overlap between Acosta and Carson (this transcript ...</p> <a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/aug/23/ben-carson/ben-carson-most-border-not-under-our-control/">>> More</a>  more...

<br/>
<p>Hillary Clinton says her&nbsp;emails are now out in the open solely because she wanted them to be made public. In an Aug. 17 interview with Iowa Public Radio, Clinton told reporter Clay Masters what she thinks will come of her controversial decision to exclusively use private email while secretary of state. &quot;I think this will all sort itself out,&quot; Clinton said. &quot;And in a way, it&rsquo;s kind of an interesting insight into how the government operates.

Bill Clinton: &quot;There&#39;s not a single, solitary example that&quot; signing the bill to end Glass-Steagall &quot;had anything to do with the financial crash.&quot;

Description: The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Bill Clinton: Glass-Steagall repeal had nothing to do with financial crisis
<br/>
<p>Recently, activists have shown up at Hillary Clinton&rsquo;s campaign events to urge her to bring back Glass-Steagall. What is Glass-Steagall? It&rsquo;s the Depression-era bank regulation that kept different types of financial institutions separate; then-President Bill Clinton signed legislation reversing it in 1999. Some Glass-Steagall supporters argue that its demise led to the 2007 financial crisis, and some Democrats have put a good amount of effort into restoring it -- such as presidential candidates Martin O&rsquo;Malley and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. But Hillary Clinton won&#39;t pledge to reinstate Glass-Steagall if she becomes president.

Description: The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Trump says illegal immigrants get $4.2B in tax credits but doesn't count their taxes paid
<br/>
<p>After weeks of incendiary rhetoric on illegal immigration, Donald Trump unveiled his official policy plan on what is arguably the central issue of his campaign on Aug. 16. Highlights of the plan include deporting all undocumented immigrants, ending birthright citizenship&nbsp;and &quot;making Mexico pay for the wall.&quot; &quot;For many years, Mexico&rsquo;s leaders have been taking advantage of the United States by using illegal immigration to export the crime and poverty in their own country,&quot; the position page on Trump&rsquo;s website reads. &quot;The costs for the United States have been extraordinary. ...

Description: The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Lightning strikes more common in Texas than in-person voter fraud, says Cory Booker
<br/>
<p>The Voting Rights Act turned 50 on Aug. 6, but the anniversary also doubled as an occasion for voting rights advocates to celebrate a new victory: The day before, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Texas&rsquo;s 2011 photo ID law was unconstitutional, because it violated the rights of minority voters. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.,&nbsp;went on ABC&rsquo;s This Week&nbsp;on Aug. 9 to explain why he supported the decision: &quot;Take Texas for example, where Lyndon Johnson&#39;s obviously from, they passed these voter ID laws. In the decade before it, 10 years, they only prosecute two people for in-person voter ID, ...</p> <a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/aug/18/cory-booker/lightning-strikes-more-common-person-voter-fraud-s/">>> More</a>  more...
