The sitting President of the US, Donald Trump holds a strikingly conflicting relationship with reality and has earned the title of a 'compulsive liar' by politicians across the world, for lying, precisely 10,796 times as of June 7, 2019, since taking charge.
Trump had his foot in the mouth once again after he claimed that PM Modi asked him to play the role of a mediator in the Kashmir conflict with Pakistan, a claim that has been categorically rejected by the External Affairs Ministry.
While Opposition playing to US President's 'Kashmir mediation' charge, here are three instances from the ocean of Trump's fallacious lies, within just a week.
In a tweet reeking of ignorance, Trump claimed that the arrest of the Mumbai terror attacks "mastermind" was made after "10 years of search." Furthermore, the misinformed president of the United States uttered that 'great pressure' was exerted for his "search" for the past two years.
After a ten year search, the so-called “mastermind” of the Mumbai Terror attacks has been arrested in Pakistan. Great pressure has been exerted over the last two years to find him!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 17, 2019
In a so-called crackdown against terrorism, Pakistan arrested the Lashkar-e-Taiba co-founder, yet again. Although, in the past, Saeed, who takes shelter on the Pakistan soil has been arrested and released multiple times. The terrorist has also been roaming freely around the neighbouring country, allegedly under the safety blanket of the Pakistan military.
Donald Trump, sitting alongside Pakistan PM Imran Khan in a laughable claim said that he can win the 18-year Afghan war 'in 10 days' but this would also wipe “Afghanistan from the face of the earth."

Kabul on Monday asked for a clarification on Trump's ridiculous statement.
Sitting alongside Imran Khan, when questioned if Trump would be watching the highly-anticipated former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before the Congress on Wednesday. Responding to which, in just a few seconds, Trump lied through his teeth and said, "we had a total no-collusion finding"
He added, "We had no collusion, no obstruction, we had no nothing."
However, the Mueller report nowhere mentioned this, but said that 'Russian government perceived it would benefit from Donald Trump's presidency.'
Trump tells a series of lies about the Mueller report and Mueller himself, including that the report is "a total no collusion finding" (it is not) and that Mueller is "best friends" with Comey (they are not) pic.twitter.com/EtUvEerF6z— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 22, 2019
In contrast to Trump's 'no obstruction' claim, the report found 10 instances in which the US President performed obstruction of justice.
The Robert Mueller report is based on the findings to a two-year investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 US Presidential campaign.
