  3. &lt;br/&gt;
  4. &lt;p&gt;Joe Biden has made attacking Donald Trump a key part of his 2020 campaign, arguing that Trump has squandered the achievements of the Barack Obama administration. One mention referred to China stealing U.S. technology. &amp;quot;In the Obama-Biden administration,&amp;quot; Biden said, &amp;quot;we got China to cut cyber-theft &amp;mdash; it&amp;#39;s gotten significantly worse under this administration.&amp;quot; There is evidence the Chinese government reduced its technology thefts from U.S. companies after an agreement struck by the Obama administration in 2015. Other factors also led to the reduction, and it&amp;rsquo;s not clear why the thefts have increased under ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/14/joe-biden/joe-biden-says-he-helped-cut-chinas-thefts-us-tech/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Fri, 14 Jun 2019 15:29:01 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/14/joe-biden/joe-biden-says-he-helped-cut-chinas-thefts-us-tech/</guid></item><item><title>Amy Klobuchar - Amy Klobuchar right about state psychiatric bed shortages</title><link>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/13/amy-klobuchar/amy-klobuchar-right-state-psychiatric-bed-shortage/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True  |   Amy Klobuchar right about state psychiatric bed shortages

  6. &lt;p&gt;After an interview with MSNBC host Chris Hayes, Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, a senator from Minnesota, said in a tweet June 7 that the U.S. needs to do more to support mental health patients. &amp;quot;Millions of Americans need mental health care. Yet in Iowa, there are just 64 public mental health care beds. And you see similar numbers across the country,&amp;quot; she tweeted.

  8. &lt;p&gt;U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath of Georgia, who became a gun-control advocate after her 17-year-old son was shot to death, tweeted on June 5 that she was praying the U.S. Senate would adopt the House-passed Bipartisan Background Checks Act. That drew a retweet from a Democratic colleague, Rep.

  9. &lt;br/&gt;
  10. &lt;p&gt;The Hyde Amendment is statutory language that bars federal dollars from being used to pay for most abortions. Though decades old, it suddenly became a point of controversy in the 2020 presidential campaign, as rivals of Joe Biden criticized his history of voting for it. The Hyde Amendment was named for its original champion, the late Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., and has been passed by Congress regularly since 1977. It says the federal government can&amp;rsquo;t pay for abortions, but it has always included an exception for the life of the mother, and most of the time it has included ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/11/bernie-sanders/bernie-sanders-oversimplifies-record-hyde-amendmen/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Tue, 11 Jun 2019 15:13:45 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/11/bernie-sanders/bernie-sanders-oversimplifies-record-hyde-amendmen/</guid></item><item><title>Seth Moulton - Seth Moulton correct that prescription drug prices can be negotiated for VA, but not Medicare</title><link>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/07/seth-moulton/seth-moulton-correct-prescription-drug-prices-can-/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: True  |   Seth Moulton correct that prescription drug prices can be negotiated for VA, but not Medicare
  11. &lt;br/&gt;
  12. &lt;p&gt;Democratic presidential candidate Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) doesn&amp;rsquo;t support single-payer health care &amp;mdash; even though it&amp;rsquo;s the health care policy he&amp;rsquo;s covered by. Single-payer health care refers to a health insurance plan for everyone that is paid for by one entity, such as the government. But as a veteran, Moulton said he knows firsthand &amp;quot;the good, the bad and the ugly&amp;quot; of such an approach. His service makes him eligible for health coverage through the Veterans Administration health system, which single-payer advocates often cite as an American success story.

  14. &lt;p&gt;Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard said that some immigrants in the U.S. military are getting the &amp;quot;door slammed on their face&amp;quot; when they apply for U.S. citizenship. At a meeting with veterans in California, Gabbard was asked what she would do about immigrant veterans who are deported. &amp;quot;We got to bring our veterans home,&amp;quot; said Gabbard, a U.S. representative from Hawaii who served two tours of duty in the Middle East and is a major in the Hawaii Army National Guard. Many immigrant veterans and active service members don&amp;rsquo;t know their rights and opportunities, Gabbard said. &amp;quot;Even those who ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/07/tulsi-gabbard/tulsi-gabbard-right-citizenship-denials-are-higher/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Fri, 07 Jun 2019 16:27:20 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/07/tulsi-gabbard/tulsi-gabbard-right-citizenship-denials-are-higher/</guid></item><item><title>Donald Trump - Republicans support Donald Trump, but not as much as he said</title><link>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/06/donald-trump/donald-trump-says-republican-voters-him-more-they-/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True  |   Republicans support Donald Trump, but not as much as he said
  15. &lt;br/&gt;
  16. &lt;p&gt;President Donald Trump has a commanding hold on Republican voters, but it isn&amp;rsquo;t as high as he says. In a news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May, a reporter asked Trump what he thought of Republican lawmakers who threatened to block his planned tariffs against Mexico. &amp;quot;I think if they do, it&amp;rsquo;s foolish,&amp;quot; Trump said June 4. &amp;quot;I&amp;rsquo;ve had tremendous Republican support. I have a 90% &amp;mdash; 94% approval rating, as of this morning, in the Republican Party. That&amp;rsquo;s an all-time record. Can you believe that? Isn&amp;rsquo;t that something?

  18. &lt;p&gt;When Chris Wallace of Fox News asked Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand what can be done to stop shootings like the one in Virginia Beach, she wasted no time in laying blame on President Donald Trump. Gillibrand focused on bump stocks, the gun accessory that uses recoil to effectively turn a semi-automatic rifle into a fully automatic one &amp;mdash; that is, from a weapon that requires a trigger pull to fire each round to one that shoots a steady stream of rounds with one trigger pull. Semi-automatic rifles are legal, but fully automatic weapons &amp;mdash; sometimes called machine ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/06/kirsten-gillibrand/kirsten-gillibrand-wrong-about-donald-trump-and-bu/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Thu, 06 Jun 2019 19:26:19 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/06/kirsten-gillibrand/kirsten-gillibrand-wrong-about-donald-trump-and-bu/</guid></item><item><title>Michael Bennet - Michael Bennet is right that a majority say the effects of global warming are happening</title><link>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/jun/06/michael-bennet/michael-bennet-right-majority-say-effects-global-w/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True  |   Michael Bennet is right that a majority say the effects of global warming are happening

  20. &lt;p&gt;Over 90% of publishing climate scientists agree that humans are causing global warming. Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, who is running for president, said in a CNN town hall May 30 that public perception is consistent with that consensus. &amp;quot;The vast majority of Americans believe that climate change is real and we need to do something about it,&amp;quot; he said.

The sprawling $30 billion package included money for drug treatment and community policing, along with billions for prisons and tougher sentences for criminals.

  37. &lt;br/&gt;
  38. &lt;p&gt;A video circulating on Facebook gives the impression that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke in a very slurred manner at a public event. That video isn&amp;rsquo;t an accurate representation of Pelosi&amp;rsquo;s speech &amp;mdash; the audio is slowed down to a point that some social media users questioned whether she was drunk or medically impaired. &amp;quot;House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on President Trump walking out infrastructure meeting: &amp;lsquo;It was very, very, very strange,&amp;rsquo;&amp;quot; said text accompanying the approximately three-minute clip. The video was posted on the Facebook page for an account called Politics WatchDog. The Washington Post published a &lt;a ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/24/politics-watchdog/viral-video-nancy-pelosi-speech-was-manipulated/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Fri, 24 May 2019 14:48:18 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/24/politics-watchdog/viral-video-nancy-pelosi-speech-was-manipulated/</guid></item><item><title>Donald Trump - Donald Trump&amp;#39;s international comparison of &amp;#39;merit-based&amp;#39; immigration, fact-checked</title><link>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/24/donald-trump/donald-trumps-international-comparison-merit-based/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True  |   Donald Trump's international comparison of 'merit-based' immigration, fact-checked
  39. &lt;br/&gt;
  40. &lt;p&gt;As he proposed more changes to legal immigration, President Donald Trump said the United States lags other countries that admit a higher rate of migrants based on education or training. Most of the 1 million green cards awarded each year are based on a family connection to someone in the United States. Now, Trump wants to flip this so that most permits are based on skills and &amp;quot;merit.&amp;quot; &amp;quot;Only 12% of legal immigrants are selected based on skill or based on merit,&amp;quot; Trump said May 16. &amp;quot;In countries like Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, and others, that number is ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/24/donald-trump/donald-trumps-international-comparison-merit-based/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Fri, 24 May 2019 12:38:54 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/24/donald-trump/donald-trumps-international-comparison-merit-based/</guid></item><item><title>Marcia Fudge - In election security hearing, Marcia Fudge misleads about South Carolina, Ohio voting machines</title><link>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/23/marcia-fudge/election-security-hearing-marcia-fudge-misleads-ab/</link><description>The Truth-o-Meter says: False  |   In election security hearing, Marcia Fudge misleads about South Carolina, Ohio voting machines
  41. &lt;br/&gt;
  42. &lt;p&gt;Amid fears of hacking, election officials told U.S. lawmakers they need more federal money to replace voting machines that are old or lack a paper trail. Election officials face pressure to shore up their equipment before the 2020 elections, following reports that Russia attempted to hack election systems in 2016. U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, who chairs a subcommittee on voting rights, said the United States lacks regulations for voting machines. Fudge suggested that one state bought faulty machines from the one she represents. &amp;nbsp;&amp;quot;I&amp;rsquo;m from Ohio by the way &amp;mdash; a state that thought that our machines were so ...&lt;/p&gt; &lt;a href="/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/23/marcia-fudge/election-security-hearing-marcia-fudge-misleads-ab/"&gt;&gt;&gt; More&lt;/a&gt;</description><pubDate>Thu, 23 May 2019 19:58:30 +0000</pubDate><guid>http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2019/may/23/marcia-fudge/election-security-hearing-marcia-fudge-misleads-ab/</guid></item></channel></rss>
