There's no apparent basis for Trump's claim just now that "everybody" has been trying to get this Turkey deal for "10 years," unless he means Turkey's government. (He habitually claims that previous administrations couldn't have achieved deals they never tried to achieve.)
"Everybody's tried to make this deal for 15 years," Trump says. Over 11 minutes, he has gone from "many years" to "10 years" to "15 years."
Trump now says it was "more than" 15 years people have tried to get this deal. This is some of the fastest lieflation in recent memory.
