In a lengthy exchange with reporters on the White House South Lawn on Friday, President Donald Trump claimed that the outcome of the Mueller investigation shows 'I'm a very honest guy.' Before and after that pronouncement, he made false claims. Trump again claimed that China is single-handedly paying for the US tariffs. '(B)y the way, billions and billions of dollars of tariffs are coming in and China is paying for it, not our people.' Facts First: No matter how many times Trump makes this claim (and he's made it a lot recently), it's false to say that China is paying the tariffs. The majority of the costs of these tariffs fall on American consumers and businesses.
