100 Days of Trump Claims

The Washington Post's Fact Checker team, which is a kind of "truth squad" that questions the truth of the statements of political figures regarding issues of great importance, created this visualization to track the statements made by Trump during his first 100 days of presidency and counted 492 false or misleading claims. The visualization consists of a main timeline, supported by other smaller visualizations, where the user can choose to view the statements by theme, discover the statement that has been made, and learn in which days more false or misleading statements were made.
