President Donald Trump’s administration shattering the record for letters and e-mails received in a year in The White House is fake news. There is no truth to a report that the current administration reached a milestone achievement by receiving the most letters and e-mails from U.S. citizens in a year.
Trump has been the subject of many fake news, tweets, photographs and memes. This is just another one in a long list of them. Now, where did this fake news originate? The Potatriot Post published the fake news article on March 6, 2018, reporting that Trump’s administration earned an achievement for the Guinness Book of World Records by getting the most letters and e-mails. You can read it below.
White House Director of Information and Propaganda Art Tubolls has released a statement that the Trump Administration will enter the Guinness Book of World Records for receiving more letters and emails in a year than any organization in history:
“In 365 days beginning on January 21st, 2017, the Trump Administration received 41.6 million unsolicited pieces of correspondence from the public at large. That beats the now runner-up Obama Administration by nearly 22 million.
It wasn’t even close.”
Guinness has confirmed the statement, adding that statistics for the content of the emails are also available and “very impressive”.
However, there is no truth to the above story. What is the problem with the story to make it false? For one thing, there is no job title of “White House Director of Information and Propaganda” nor an “Art Tubolls” who fulfills that alleged role in the White House. There is also no record of any press release having been issued by The White House about setting a record for letters and e-mails received.
However, Trump does hold a number of records with Guinness Book of World Records, which you can see here. Some of these records include being the wealthiest individual to appear in and endorse a videogame, being a part of the most expensive presidential inauguration with a record $90 million to cover the costs and having the most watched TV presidential debate alongside presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Finally and most importantly, Potatriot Post, previously, Patriot Post carries the following disclaimer:
