Five Things Donald Trump Said on Tuesday

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Today President Trump:

  • Tried three times to say the word “origins” but instead said “oranges.”
  • Said that his father was born in Germany, not New York City.
  • Complained, in a speech being televised on CSPAN, that he had to be careful because someone was probably going to leak what he said to the media.
  • In the same speech, warned Republicans to be “more paranoid” because he “doesn’t like the way the votes are being tallied.”
  • Said about wind farms, “They say the noise causes cancer.”

But don’t worry. His mental state is just fine. Nothing to see here.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
