WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump and his GOP allies are playing loose with the facts when it comes to a successor for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Seeking to justify a possible confirmation vote before the Nov. 3 election, Trump asserted over the weekend that many high court nominations were made in an election year and "in all cases, they went forward." That's clearly not true. In fact, just one hour after Justice Antonin Scalia's unexpected death in February 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly made clear the Senate should not confirm a successor chosen by President Barack Obama because of the coming election. That slot ultimately went unfilled until after President Donald Trump announced a nominee 11 months later. Republican Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday also claimed a "constitutional crisis" if a replacement isn't confirmed right away, insisting Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden has stated he won't accept the election results if he loses. Biden has said he will. The revisionist GOP history comes following a week of outright falsehoods, on subjects like auto manufacturing, voting fraud and more. Trump told a North Carolina rally that a conversation with the Japanese prime minister led to five new car companies opening in Michigan the next day. That didn't happen. Biden laid out a broad and largely supported case that Trump has underplayed the severity of the pandemic. But the devil was in the details: No, Trump did not call the coronavirus a hoax. A look: GINSBURG TRUMP, on advancing a Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year: "This has happened numerous times. And every time, there was a nominee, as you know. There's been many occasions where, frankly, it turned out to be during a presidential year. ......

WASHINGTON (AP) - Playing defense on his handling of the coronavirus, President Donald Trump is letting the falsehoods fly. Over the weekend, he railed against cases of voting fraud that didn't exist, asserted that COVID-19 was "rounding a corner" despite what his top health advisers say and blasted Joe Biden for supposed positions on energy and health care that his Democratic rival doesn't hold. As the rhetoric flew during the past week, both Trump and Biden exaggerated accomplishments - Trump about himself and Biden about his son, Beau - as well as their own influence in reviving the auto industry. A recent sampling: VIRUS TRUMP: "We are rounding the corner." - remarks Sunday at a Latino roundtable event in Las Vegas. TRUMP: The coronavirus "is rounding the turn, rounding the corner." - remarks Saturday to reporters in Reno, Nevada. THE FACTS: To be clear, that's not what his top health advisers say. "I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that," Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious diseases expert, told MSNBC on Friday, calling the current coronavirus levels seven months into the pandemic "disturbing." He expressed concern about a potential spike in cases following the Labor Day holiday beyond a present rate of 40,000 cases a day and 1,000 deaths. "What we don't want to see is going into the fall season, when people will be spending more time indoors - and that's not good for a respiratory-borne virus - you don't want to start off already with a baseline that's so high," Fauci said. Fauci this past week also cautioned that people should not "underestimate" the pandemic and they will "need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it's not going to be easy." He and other health...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Explaining his deceptive assurances about the pandemic, President Donald Trump suggested he was doing what Winston Churchill had done, soothing the public in a time of danger. That's not how it went down in World War II. Churchill did not tell Britons that Nazi Germany was "under control " or that, "like a miracle, it will disappear," to cite Trump's words on the virus. The British prime minister spread fear, as well as resolve, as he summoned Britons to national purpose against the "hideous apparatus of aggression" enslaving swaths of Europe and soon to be "turned upon us." Trump's statements about the pandemic have been rife with misinformation from the start. But journalist Bob Woodward's new book, "Rage," reveals Trump admitting to using distortion as a tactic as he underplayed the threat of COVID-19 to Americans and young people in particular, while knowing better. The president said his purpose was to avoid panic. Details from the book and its recorded interviews with Trump dropped during a week of intense politicking as the campaign for the Nov. 3 election entered its homestretch. As the rhetoric flew, both Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden exaggerated their influence in reviving the auto industry. In a mix-up, Biden vastly overstated military COVID-19 deaths. Trump thoroughly misrepresented Biden's positions. BLOOD, SWEAT, TEARS TRUMP on Churchill during the German bombing of London: "He always spoke with calmness. He said, 'We have to show calmness.'" - remarks to Michigan supporters Thursday. TRUMP: "As the British government advised the British people in the face of World War II, 'Keep calm and carry on.' That's what I did.'" - Michigan remarks. THE FACTS: Historians take sharp issue with that. . ..
