    WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing closely contested election races in Florida and Arizona, President Donald Trump is spreading misleading rhetoric regarding voting fraud.
    He says votes are suspiciously appearing "out of the wilderness" in Arizona after Election Day to boost the Democratic candidate in the Senate race. It's actually typical for the state to take additional days after an election to finish tabulating mail-in votes.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — In the final days before pivotal midterm elections, President Donald Trump is painting a distorted picture of immigration while exaggerating his record of achieving economic gains for non-whites and improving health care for veterans.

    He insists that Republicans will be able to attract the non-white vote in Tuesday's elections because he's achieved "the best median income numbers for all of these groups." In fact, incomes for African-Americans and Asian-Americans reached their highest levels prior to his administration.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — For the blink of a tweet, President Donald Trump gave subtle credence to the notion that bombs mailed to Democrats were actually a ploy to hurt Republicans in the election. That flew in the face of known facts in the episode, just one example of reality being twisted in the house of mirrors otherwise known as the final stretch of the election campaign.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence misstated federal statistics when trying to help President Donald Trump make the case that terrorists are among thousands of migrants moving through Mexico toward the U.S. border. Trump himself acknowledged he's got no proof terrorists are in the mix.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump overreached Monday night when he boasted that he's seated more federal judges than any president except George Washington. By various measures, he trails others.

    President Donald Trump inflated the projected benefits of an arms deal with the Saudis as he defended his wait-and-see attitude about Saudi complicity in the disappearance of a journalist whose apparent murder has sparked world outrage.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump in his interview with The Associated Press said he has "a natural instinct for science." But what he said about hurricanes, clean air and climate doesn't quite get the science right.
    More than a dozen scientists, economists and climate negotiators pointed out where his comments didn't fit with the reality of human-caused climate change, hurricanes and air pollution.
    A look at his statements Tuesday:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump mischaracterized his immigration-law achievements, the plight of children taken from parents at the Mexico border and what's known about Russia's interference in the 2016 election in his wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press.
    A look at his comments on those subjects Tuesday:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump took a big step into the debate over the future of America's health care system with an op-ed column in USA Today that presented a bleak vision of what would happen under plans backed by many Democrats to institute government insurance for everyone.
    Trump on Wednesday cast the idea as a dangerous scheme by "radical socialists" as he played up potential pitfalls of a government-paid system without citing any of the benefits, such as the disappearance of most medical bills.

    BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale accuses his Democratic opponent, Sen. Jon Tester, of obstructing the confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by refusing to meet with him before deciding to vote against his nomination.
    The claim against the two-term incumbent feeds into State Auditor Rosendale's narrative of Tester as hostile to the agenda of President Donald Trump, who won Montana by 20 percentage points in 2016.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump inaccurately described his new trade deal with Canada and Mexico as the biggest ever — it's not even close — and glossed over some possible consequences of the agreement, such as higher car prices.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump isn't playing it straight when it comes to his campaign pledge not to undercut health coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions.
    Five weeks before midterm elections, he is telling voters that those provisions "are safe," even as his Justice Department is arguing in court that those protections in the Affordable Care Act should fall. The short-term health plans Trump often promotes as a bargain alternative to "Obamacare" offer no guarantee of covering pre-existing conditions.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his Senate supporters misrepresented the record when they stated that three witnesses refuted Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that he sexually assaulted her at a party more than 30 years ago.
    The three swore they had no recollection of the party — providing no support for Ford's accusations laid out to the Senate Judiciary Committee. But their statements do not disprove the allegations, either.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As the midterm elections draw near, President Donald Trump's tendency to declare his campaign promises fulfilled when they aren't has come into starker relief.
    He insists poverty in the U.S. is "plummeting," even though the number of poor people has barely declined under his watch and income inequality is climbing.
