After a long hiatus, Trump has returned to his story about women being trafficked in the "back of a van" through unwalled border. Experts told me they haven't encountered stories like Trump's. Victims are more often deceived into coming willingly, or coerced, than kidnapped.
Asked about his tweet repeating Peter Thiel's accusation against Google, Trump said, "He's one of the top -- maybe the top -- expert on all of those things."
Trump repeated his baseless conspiracy theory about the government of Guatemala and Honduras deliberately putting their hardened criminals in migrant caravans to foist them upon the United States.
Trump, to Cabinet, again suggested that he is successfully ordering major foreign corporations around: "Germany called to say that they're going to be announcing some very big movement with respect to a certain company that I've demanded has to come."
Trump repeated his false claim that no migrant returns for their court hearings, then added, "2%, to be accurate. I want to be accurate, because I don't want the press to say I was inaccurate."

He was inaccurate. It was 89% for asylum seekers in 2017.
Trump said the ICE raids happened on Sunday (though nobody saw signs of a major operation) -- they just happened so "smoothly," he said, that "you didn't even see it."
Trump claimed that he quickly got permits for the Louisiana LNG facility he visited recently, since "it was many, many years trying to get permits; they couldn't get the permits." The permits were granted by the Obama administration, by 2014.…
Trump falsely claimed again that US remains "continue to come" back from North Korea. The US military agency in charge of the recovery effort has announced that the recovery effort has been suspended because North Korea has ceased communicating.
Trump's account of how his DMZ meeting with Kim Jong Un came about: "Nobody actually knew how to get in touch. Tough people to get in touch with...I put it out on Twitter: 'Hey I'm in South Korea, you wanna meet?' And we had a great meeting. It was pretty wild."
