Trump ignores question when asked if he regrets 'all the lying you've done'
President Trump on Thursday ignored a question during a White House briefing when a reporter asked if he regretted all the lying he has done while in office.
"Do you regret at all all the lying you've done to the American people?" HuffPost reporter S.V. Dáte asked.
"All the what?" Trump asked.
"All the lying. All the dishonesties," Dáte said.
"That who has done?" Trump asked.
"You have done," Dáte responded.
The president paused for a moment, then called on a different reporter without addressing the question.
Trump has throughout his presidency made false or misleading statements and did so again Thursday during the first half of his briefing when he made exaggerated or inaccurate claims about presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The Washington Post reported in mid-July that Trump has made 20,000 false or misleading claims during his presidency. The president has made nearly 1,000 such claims about the coronavirus pandemic in recent months, the Post found.
"For five years I've been wanting to ask him that," Dáte tweeted after the briefing.
