Donald Trump wrote a tweet attacking US Representatives Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He claimed the following:

Claim 1:

“Omar is polling at 8%…”

 

Fact Check 1:

from USA Today: https://www.usatoday.com/amp/1764862001

“Trump also misleadingly claimed polls showed Omar only has 8% support, not mentioning that a similar figure is from a poll of white likely general-election voters without a bachelor’s degree.”

Claim is Misleading at best.

 

Claim 2:

“…Cortez at 21%.”

 

Fact Check 2:

from USA Today: https://www.usatoday.com/amp/1764862001

“In his comments and in a tweet the following day, Trump cited low polling numbers for Omar and Ocasio-Cortez of 8% and 21%, respectively. But numbers similar to those are from a survey of white voters with no more than two years of college education, not voters overall or voters in the lawmakers’ districts.”

Claim is Misleading at best.
