President Trump Gets A Live Fact-Check During Press Briefing

During President Donald Trump's first solo press conference as commander in chief, he claimed his Electoral College win was the biggest since Ronald Reagan's. That claim is incorrect. Barack Obama had wider electoral margins during both of his elections, and George H.W. Bush had a much larger margin when he won. NBC's Peter Alexander fact-checked Trump live after he made the claim.
