Trump Now Taking Credit for Things that Had Nothing to Do With Him
I guess desperate times call for desperate levels of lying:
“Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation,” President Trump said in a tweet on Tuesday. “Good news - it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!”
and of course:
"The safety record is “the culmination of decades of work by thousands of people,” industry consultant John Cox, a former airline captain and accident investigator, told The Wall Street Journal. According to The Atlantic, “The president’s claim can’t withstand even slight scrutiny…. Changes in statistics like air safety are achieved over long time scales, and given the small number of crashes involved, minor deviations in the number are unlikely attributable to any specific presidential action—especially one taken in the just under a year Trump has been in office.”"

Look for the next White House news release: "Trump Takes Credit for the Sun Coming Up in the Morning"
Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation, President Trump said in a tweet on Tuesday. Good news - it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record! The Hill contacted the president s press office, asking exactly what steps the president had taken to improve airline safety. President Trump raised the bar for our nation s aviation safety and security, White House spokesman Raj Shah responded. The last fatal crash involving a commercial aircraft in the U.S. was the Colgan Air crash in 2009.
