Trump is back and his campaign exaggerations are even worse than his tan

In his third round of campaigning, Donald Trump has already made some wildly overstated claims about his prior performance in the oval office.

Donald Trump made his highly awaited return to politics known during a private ceremony at his Mar-a-Lago club. His address was rambling and full of errors, exaggerations, and occasionally downright lies.

One of the first lies of the evening was when Trump claimed that President Joe Biden had emptied America's strategic national oil reserves in order to keep gas prices low before the midterm elections and that he was the one to replenish them.

"Gas prices are at their highest points ever. And anticipate them to rise significantly now that the strategic national reserves—which I topped off—have essentially been depleted—having been used to keep gas prices low just before the election.

When Trump took office, the strategic oil reserves were 95% filled, with 695.1 million barrels stored out of the 727 million spots available, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA).

When Forbes senior correspondent Robert Rapier looked into Trump's statements, he discovered that the EIA's data indicated that American oil reserves were at approximately 638 when Trump left office.

According to the EIA, the Biden administration saw the United States become a net exporter of petroleum in 2020, which hadn't happened since 1949.

The former president said that China was paying enormous amounts of money in taxes and that "before I came along, no president had ever seen or received one dollar for our country from China."

Since migrant arrivals at the border peaked under Trump in 2019, according to US Customs and Border Protection, the flow of migrants entering the United States was not at its lowest point during his presidency.

Trump also erroneously asserted that under his administration, there had been no terrorist attacks in the United States.
