Another day, another instance of Donald Trump conveniently taking credit for the work of others before him—and like so many times before, he got called out publicly about it. This time Jon Cooper, the Chairman of the Democratic Coalition, promptly checked Trump after he falsely claimed that he opened an Apple manufacturing plant that’s been open since 2013.Trump likes to use his Twitter fingers for various reasons and one of them is constantly boasting about all the things he’s done to make himself a great president. Trump’s latest untrue claim is that he is responsible for a manufacturing plant for Apple that he claims to have recently opened in Texas. However, Jon Cooper quickly let him know that not only did he not open the plant—but it was already opened six years ago back in 2013…when President Obama was still in office.Trump initially tweeted:“Today I opened a major Apple Manufacturing plant in Texas that will bring high paying jobs back to America. Today Nancy Pelosi closed Congress because she doesn’t care about American workers!”Cooper then responded with this:“Apple actually opened that plant in 2013 during the Obama administration, you lying dips**t.”The factory Trump visited has been open and assembling MacBook Pros since 2013, when Apple announced it would bring some its manufacturing back to the U.S. Additionally, the facility isn’t even actually operated by Apple, but instead by the company’s contractor Flex Ltd.Despite being publicly corrected once again, you can begin the countdown to the next time Trump takes credit for something else he hasn’t done.Roommates, what are your thoughts on this?
