Whether they should be called falsehoods, exaggerations, lies, or something else entirely is an ongoing discussion, but whatever Donald Trump’s not-adhering-to-what-is-actually-the-case tweets are called, the Washington Post’s Fact Checker column is tracking them and correcting the record in an occasional column.
