Trump Dubs Himself A ‘Stable Genius,’ Falsely Claims For Third Time That Reagan Didn’t Win Wisconsin





President Trump on Thursday repeated for the third time in a month the false claim that former President Reagan didn’t win the state of Wisconsin.


“One of the states we won — Wisconsin — I didn’t realize this until fairly recently, that was the one state that Ronald Reagan didn’t win when he ran the board his second time,” Trump said during his NATO press conference.

“He didn’t win Wisconsin and we won Wisconsin,” he added.




Reagan won the state in both 1980 and 1984, but lost Minnesota, which Trump also lost.

Trump bragged about his 2016 victory after he was asked about massive protests planned in Britain ahead his visit there this week.

“Sure there will be protests because there are always protests,” Trump said. “I know there were protests the night of the election both ways.”

The Hill added:

Trump first made the inaccurate claim while campaigning in Wisconsin late last month.

He repeated it during another campaign rally in Montana earlier this month.

Trump later pronounced himself a “stable genius” when asked if he will take to his Twitter page while boarding Air Force One and send out his own comments after meeting with international leaders.

“No, that’s other people that do that,” Trump said. “I don’t. I’m very consistent.”

“I’m a very stable genius,” the president added.
