President Donald Trump keeps having afternoon news conferences. And he keeps using them to make the same false claims over and over.

At Wednesday’s edition, Trump repeated at least 12 false claims he’s made before. They were about his usual array of topics: the coronavirus pandemic, mail-in voting, China, and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump devoted a substantial portion of his remarks to the pandemic, but you wouldn’t confuse this event for an informational public-interest briefing. He used most of the time to boast about himself, defend his pandemic response with an array of false and misleading claims, and attack Democrats, including vice-presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris.
