Fact Check: Donald Trump’s Claims About Infrastructure.  (The New York Times, 6/9/2017)
President Trump devoted three speeches to the nation’s ailing roads and bridges — and made misleading attacks on his predecessor’s efforts to fix them during a week his administration had wanted to focus on infrastructure but was derailed by the public testimony of James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director.

Either way, not a good showing for our top elected official.
