President Trump's Interview with Chris Wallace
Jul 20, 2020 at 05:44 PM

The Quick Facts

  • On July 19th, President Trump gave an interview with "Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace. The full interview is available to watch on Youtube.
  • The forty minute outdoor interview covered "all manner of questions, with no subject off-limits." Topics covered included the nationwide surge in coronavirus cases, racial unrest, Joe Biden, and Mary Trump's new tell-all book.
  • In the interview, Wallace conducted live fact checks on several of President Trump's claims. Three notable disagreements were on the United States' coronavirus mortality rate as compared to other nations, whether or not Joe Biden supports defunding the police (he does not), and the difficulty level of a cognitive test that President Trump had taken.
  • Twice, President Trump asked aides to bring him information to back up his claims during the live interview. The information provided by aides was fact-checked (and discredited) in real-time by Wallace.
  • During the interview, Wallace stated that Biden had been invited to interview on "Fox News Sunday," but had not yet accepted.
