    "accused Hillary Clinton of colluding with Russia to change the results of the 2016 election." this is not a claim present in the tweet. He actually claims that the results were not changed. – viraptor Feb 20 '18 at 6:02

    @viraptor Sure, he doesn't use those exact words, but it seems to me like that's what he's saying. The only story in the news is about collusion to impact the election and that is the topic he's talking about. Then he accuses Crooked H of collusion, what else would she been colluding with Russia about if not the election? Also the question has nothing to do with the result of the collusion, only whether it happened or not. – Coomie Feb 20 '18 at 7:47

    Is this really a notable claim? Does anyone actually expect his tweets to be taken seriously? – Semaphore Feb 20 '18 at 13:49

    @Semaphore Trump still has a large followship of people who actually believe his narrative that he is the victim of a conspiracy between the "mainstream media" and the "deep state". So fact-checking his claims is definitly worth the effort. – Philipp Feb 20 '18 at 14:21
