Within his first and only term as U.S. President, Donald Trump managed to break a record that not a single one of his predecessors had in history. According to several trusted fact checks, after becoming the US' forty-fifth elected leader back in 2016, Trump had exuded over 30,000 lies during his tenure.

Trump was already famous for his controversial statements, however, the perpetual fibbing underwent a meteoric rise once he took office. Due to the addition of more enticing materials to his repertoire – those involving economics, military, televangelism, and foreign relations – his lies only became more fantastic during the term.

Among the lies to pour out of his Presidency were those that could lead to dangerous and even fatal situations. These critical falsehoods range from idioms that compromised public safety to lies aimed directly towards his political rivals and naysayers. And given that Trump had shored up many political allies and a cultish voter base during his run, the risk of physical casualties among the American populace was at an all-time high.

Sifting through Trump’s political career has yielded 10 of the most dangerous lies he told to the masses that will now be frowned upon in the following piece.


Hurricane Dorian is expected to hit Alabama

One of his most dangerous stunts involved altering critical data on Hurricane Dorian back in early Sep 2019. On Sep 4, he claimed that the storm would hit Alabama despite forecasts stating otherwise; going as far as to display an alternate oceanic map while stating: "We have a better map... in all cases, Alabama was hit, if not lightly in some cases pretty hard."


Rep. Omar supports Al Qaeda

Donald Trump has made many political enemies, including Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, who he had thrown racist and defamatory remarks towards. His most dangerous attack came on Jul 15, 2019, when he distorted remarks she made back in 2003 about the terrorist group al-Qaeda, claiming that she was professing “love” towards them. He said: "You don’t say ‘America’ with this intensity. You say ‘al-Qaeda,’ it makes you proud."
