WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump uttered a dizzying number of false statements in his epically long weekend speech, to an audience that didn't seem to mind at all.

4. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's repeated fabrications on voting fraud -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is spreading tall tales about election fraud.

7. AP FACT CHECK: Trump spins fiction about diversity visas -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is going after the "horror show" known as the diversity visa lottery program. His description of it is pure fiction.

The president offered a multitude of fabrications and partial truths over the past week on the subject of immigration — both the legal and illegal varieties — as he declared a national emergency aimed at finding the money to build his border wall. He said drugs are flowing across the hinterlands from Mexico, not from border crossings, and suggested that the federal prison population is laden with hardened criminals who are in the U.S. illegally. Neither claim is substantiated.

8. AP FACT CHECK: Trump declares emergency with faulty claims -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Friday declared a national emergency at the southern border while acknowledging that rapid construction of a wall is not a necessity, but rather his preference. In justifying the extraordinary step, he brushed aside his administration's conclusions that drugs come into the country primarily at official points of entry, not over remote territory that a barrier could seal off.

9. Howard Dean to head new Dem voter data exchange -

12. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's claims in his State of Union address -

18. Trump's shutdown gift to Pelosi: A unified Democratic caucus -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has done something remarkable in the government shutdown: He's unified the diverse new House Democratic majority firmly behind Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

It's not even about the wall at this point. Democrats are sticking together with an unusual amount of unity as a way to strengthen Pelosi's hand and set a tone in the new Congress that Trump can't simply demand $5.7 billion — using federal workers as leverage — to get his long-promised border wall with Mexico, or anything else on his wish list.

In comments over the weekend, he called forest management a "big problem" and suggested that California officials needed to do a much better job.
