We know that many politicians make promises they cannot keep and they typically use manipulative and ambiguous language to hide their true ideas and feelings. They hope the public will forget their false statements.

However, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton might hold the record for the most lies conveyed to the public during a campaign for president. Approximately 29 percent of Clinton’s statements have been either mostly false, false or “Pants on Fire”-level false, in the words of Politifact. Trump fared even worse. Approximately 71 percent of his statements were either mostly false, false or “Pants on Fire.”

Trump cannot be trusted when he says he will bring jobs back to America. He has outsourced jobs to China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Mexico. He employs many foreign workers.

Unfortunately, Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president, has made two significant gaffes in recent interviews, and he appears to lack knowledge of world affairs.

We can’t trust Clinton or Trump to tell the truth. I am writing in myself for president.
