ABC News Fact Checks Donald Trump But Not Hillary Clinton

Following the first presidential debate, ABC News decided to conduct two fact-checks of statements made by Donald Trump during the debate.

ABC News fact checked both Trump’s birther claim and support of the Iraq war. However, the panelists never conducted a fact-check for any of the claims that Hillary Clinton made during the debate.

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, who is a longtime Clinton associate, hosted the network’s post-debate coverage.
