Surprising to see this, given his usual "I never apologize" and always look forward kind of attitude. To me, there is a difference between putting a spin on something (i.e., some might consider this lying), and fabricating "facts" to suit your cause. The video of Iranians offloading money from a plane is a falsehood, and the video he actually admits to to having seen on TV only is stock footage from a news agency.

I can understand putting spin on something to suit your cause, but fabricating facts is another story. Trump brings that game to a whole new, scary, level.

Interesting to note that the admission came in a tweet. So that there may be some doubts that he actually did the admission. This may be the beginning of the "intervention" we keep hearing about

I think his "handlers" changed the password on his Twitter account.

At last, he actually has said it like it is.
