Ari Melber Fact-Checks Trump On Vaccine Timeline, Migrant Families And More
Ari Melber, MSNBC host and chief legal correspondent, checks some of Donald Trump's assertions in the second presidential debate using data from Trump's own administration. Aired on 10/22/2020.
Without evidence of any illegality, President Donald Trump claims that ‘if you count the legal votes, I easily win.' MSNBC Senior Legal Analyst Ari Melber says that's false: "The votes that have been lawfully apportioned, meaning what we've been following in each of these states, do not show that. They actually show what we've found, which is some states going in both directions, no one to 270." Aired on 11/05/2020. NBC News' Kristen Welker asks President Trump to clarify after he says he believe a Covid-19 vaccine will be available within weeks when administration officials have said one would be available in 2021 at the earliest. NBC News interrupts President Trump's speech to fact check claims he made about voter fraud and election projections. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) overwhelmingly won reelection this cycle despite attacks from her opponent and President Trump. Omar's hands-on campaigning also helped deliver her state as a win for the Biden-Harris ticket. Part of the progressive squad in the U.S. House, Omar intends to help shape the course of the 117th Congress. Omar will join Jonathan Capehart for a one-on-one discussion about the election, her legislative goals and more on Cape Up Live on Monday, Nov. 16 at 11:30 a.m. ET.
