In no particular order:

  1. A tour of the warehouse full of Bibles that people have sent him.
  2. All the news clippings from 2003 about his strong opposition to the Iraq War.
  3. The final report of his Hawaii investigators about Barack Obama’s place of birth.
  4. The income tax returns he promised to release several months ago.
  5. A detailed description of the “surgical” strike he supported against Libya.
  6. His directive to all Trump properties that they allow guns on their premises.
  7. Whether he would ever use nuclear weapons against ISIS.
  8. An explanation for why he quietly removed the graphic from this tweet.
  9. An accounting of how much money he made from Trump University, and why he never gave it to charity, as he promised.
  10. His “little retort” to Hillary Clinton’s entirely accurate representation of his foreign policy views. (In fairness, he still has a few hours left to make good on this.)

Just curious. He’s a busy guy, and definitely not a liar. I’m sure he’ll get around to all this stuff eventually.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
