(TargetLiberty.org) – Many users online were quick to point out on Tuesday that President Biden had falsely told a Wisconsin crowd that he had been there to see a Pittsburgh bridge collapse last year.
Trump visited the clean energy manufacturing facility Ingeteam after which he gave a speech on his economic policies. During the speech, he mentioned the collapse of a bridge in 2022. As he stated many of the attendees had been there to see the bridge collapse.
On Jan. 28, 2022, the Forbes Avenue Bridge, which is 477 feet collapsed and caused many people to be injured. However, contrary to Biden’s recent statement, he had not been there to witness the collapse as he was giving a speech around four miles away from the bridge. Following the collapse, he had also visited the site of the collapse to see the damage, but he had not been there to witness the actual incident.
The Republican National Committee was quick to point out that this was inaccurate by posting on X, formerly Twitter, a clip of Biden’s speech and writing in their post that this had never occurred.
This is not the first time that the President has exaggerated stories about himself. In November 2021 he had claimed that his home had caught on fire while his wife was in it. A month earlier he also spoke for the fifth time about an Amtrak employee. However, this story has also been debunked as it has been proved that the employee in question had passed away a year before Biden’s story had occurred.
