Letter to the Editor: Just tell us the truth
By the time this letter is published it will be three weeks since the State of the Union Address delivered by President Donald Trump. I wanted to take my time replying to it so I could do some thorough research. I found that there were three accurate statements in the speech and 12 claims that were inaccurate, exaggerated or lack context or data to back up the statement. I got this information through multiple sources including Politifact (a nonpartisan group which for the past 20 years has been fact-checking members both parties for truthfulness) as well as Forbes and NPR. So with 12 claims in the speech that were not accurate, I decided I would only focus on two. Immigration and the tax cut.
