The New York Times used a full page to print all of 'Trump's lies' since taking office

The New York Times used a full page in this week's paper to print out every lie President Donald Trump has publicly told since taking office just over five months ago.

The list contains Trump's contradictions on a slew of topics, like the Iraq War, NATO, the administration's controversial travel ban, the crowd size at Trump's inauguration, the ongoing controversy over Russia's interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign's possible role in it, and more.

Trump has contradicted himself on a regular basis since taking office and during the presidential campaign.

His rise to political stardom was built on the false "birther" theory that former president Barack Obama was born in Kenya and not a US citizen. Beginning in 2011, Trump led the charge calling for Obama to release his long-form birth certificate, which he eventually did. Trump did not publicly disavow his comments until last September during the election, five years after he initially pushed the conspiracy theory.

He blamed then-candidate Hillary Clinton for starting the controversy, saying, "Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. I finished it, you know what I mean." That claim has never been substantiated.

"President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period."

Trump's tendency to spout falsehoods also led former FBI director James Comey to testify under oath that he did not trust the president to be honest about the nature of their meetings.

When asked by Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr why he documented his interactions with Trump more meticulously than he did with Obama, Comey replied: "I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting, and so I thought it really important to document."
