HAPPENING NOW: @realDonaldTrump is speaking at an event to unveil $1.8bn in grants to combat opioid addiction. He appears to be having trouble speaking, as if he has a dry mouth.
@realDonaldTrump Now he's taking questions, claiming that there had been a "95 percent chance" that Alabama would have been hit by Hurricane #Dorian, which is a ridiculous lie that the @NWS has debunked repeatedly.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS Asked about the sharpie lines on the tracking map that appeared to have been added to make it look like Alabama was in the Hurricane's path, @realDonaldTrump said "I don't know."
@realDonaldTrump @NWS "I support something having to do with mental illness," @realDonaldTrump says while responding to a question about gun control.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS .@realDonaldTrump claims state asylums were closed "for cost reasons."

This is not true. In 1963, then-President Kennedy signed the Community Mental Health Centers Act, which aimed to shift mental health care from large asylums to community-based mental health facilities.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS .@realDonaldTrump now claiming that he had nothing to do with @VP staying at Doonbeg. "it wasn't my idea for Mike to go there...I don't suggest anything," he says, adding an unprompted denial that he spoke to AG Barr about throwing a holiday party at his DC hotel.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS @VP .@realDonaldTrump's claim that he didn't suggest that @VP stay there is a lie.

@marcshort45 yesterday: "It's like when we went through the trip, it's like, well, he's going to Doonbeg because that's where the Pence family is from. It's like, 'Well, you should stay at my place.'"
@realDonaldTrump @NWS @VP @marcshort45 Now @realDonaldTrump is once again lying about the Obama administration "paying $150 billion" to Iran to participate in the nuclear deal.

The Obama administration paid to settle a decades-old arbitration case over military equipment that Iran bought under the Shah but never got.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS @VP @marcshort45 .@realDonaldTrump claims "it was time" to start a trade war with China because the US was "losing $150 billion a year."

The US was not "losing" anything. American companies and consumers paying for manufactured goods does not result in "losing" money.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS @VP @marcshort45 In response to a question from @AprilDRyan, @realDonaldTrump says China calling in US debt is not a concern because "we could refinance" the debt.
@realDonaldTrump @NWS @VP @marcshort45 @AprilDRyan Setting aside the fact that sovereign debt does not work that way, @realDonaldTrump also doesn't understand how bonds work because he just said that people want to buy US bonds "because our interest rates are so low."
