Let’s take a walk down memory lane.

Barack Obama wrong about the size of U.S. steel production, workforce.

When Donald Trump made a high-profile speech outlining his approach to trade, he did it in Monessen, Pa., where a big steel mill has been shuttered for the past thirty years.

The day after Trump’s speech, Barack Obama discussed the history of American steel during an appearance with the Canadian prime minister and the Mexican president, who were meeting for a summit in Ottawa.

Reporters asked the three leaders what they would do to counter the anti-free-trade sentiment exemplified by Trump.

Obama said, "This nostalgia about an era when everybody was working in manufacturing jobs, and you didn’t need a college degree, and you could go in and as long as you worked hard you could support a family and live a middle-class life – that has been undermined far more by automation than it has been by outsourcing or the shift of jobs to … low-wage countries," Obama said. "I mean, the steel industry is producing as much steel in the United States as it ever was. It’s just (that) it needs one-tenth of the workers that it used to."

Several readers asked Politifacts to look into Obama’s comparison – that "the steel industry is producing as much steel in the United States as it ever was. It’s just it needs one-tenth of the workers that it used to."

It turns out that Obama was <a href="https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/jul/05/barack-obama/barack-obama-wrong-about-size-us-steel-production-/"> wrong </a> on both counts.

Barack Obama: Position on immigration action through executive orders 'hasn't changed'

Politifact <a href="https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2014/nov/20/barack-obama/barack-obama-position-immigration-action-through-e/"> Ruling </a>.

When asked to explain why he suddenly feels he can use executive action to address immigration issues, Obama said, "My position hasn’t changed."

Obama has been asked about his ability to use his office to change immigration rules in the U.S. in many ways throughout the years. Sometimes, he has been asked broadly, but other times, he was asked about very specific measures, such as not splitting up families or freezing deportations for parents of DREAMers.

In answering those questions, Obama’s position has clearly changed. Whereas he used to say his ability to take action ended at deferring action on DREAMers, he now is saying there are at least some things he can do and intends to do. Even absent the specifics of his plan, it’s very clear his tune is much different now.

We rate the claim False.

What Obama said about Islamic State as a 'JV' team.

Politifact <a href="https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2014/sep/07/barack-obama/what-obama-said-about-islamic-state-jv-team/"> Ruling </a>

Obama said his JV comment "wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL." He was not specifically asked about Islamic State, but it’s pretty clear this is the group that was being referenced in the conversation. The transcript backs this up, as do news events from the time of the discussion.

We rate the statement False.

In ‘Between Two Ferns’ interview, Barack Obama says ‘most young Americans’ are not covered by health insurance.

Obama said, "Most young Americans right now, they’re not covered" by health insurance. That’s wrong – only about a quarter of Americans between 18 and 24 and between 25 and 34 are considered uninsured. We rate his claim False.

Obama says fuel efficiency has doubled.

Politifact <a href="https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/feb/14/barack-obama/obama-says-fuel-efficiency-has-doubled/"> Ruling </a>

Obama said the U.S. has "doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas," which clearly sounds as though cars on the road today are running at twice their earlier fuel efficiency. But he was comparing a real number with a projected one, a standard for vehicles manufactured more than a decade from now.

The statement was misleading and more importantly untrue. We rate it False.

Barack Obama says Mitt Romney called the Arizona immigration law a 'model for the nation.'

Obama said Mitt Romney "called the Arizona law a model for the nation." That statement mischaracterizes Romney’s salute to Arizona’s mandate that employers electronically verify the legal status of employees, which was passed in 2007 and was not included in S.B. 1070. We rate the statement False.

Barack Obama said 'Fast and Furious' began under the Bush administration.

"I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration," Obama responded. "When (Attorney General) Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned an inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact, Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable."

Several readers wrote to Politifact that Fast and Furious did not start under President George W. Bush.

A day before Obama’s Univision interview, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Inspector General released a 512-page report about Fast and Furious.

"Our review of Operation Fast and Furious and related matters revealed a series of misguided strategies, tactics, errors in judgment and management failures," the report noted.

The report also clearly shows that Fast and Furious began under the Obama administration, dating its inception to October 2009. (Obama took office in January 2009.) This directly contradicts Obama’s claim.

Obama said that the Fast and Furious program began "under the previous administration." That is not the case; Fast and Furious did begin during the time Obama held office.

We rate Obama’s statement False.

And those are just a few of the lies.

Obama went on to take credit for Trump’s booming economy.

"When you hear all this talk about economic miracles, remember who started it," Obama said. "I hope people realize there's a pattern that every time [Republicans] run things into the ground and we've got to clean it up."

Wasn’t it Obama who said Trump would need a magic wand to get our jobs back?

Obama doesn’t get credit for anything except the Obamacare nightmare and the segregation of America. He is pure evil.

Obama was the worst, worst President ever. It's not even close. Lies, lies and more lies. Thanks for the great article Lexy.

the degradation of black communities is in large part loss of low-skill, good paying manufacturing jobs. Obama pretended that it was "white privilege" and did NOTING. his plan for "equality" was to pay blacks to live in white areas, building hosing projects for them…. all that did was move the welfare state to clean, safe white communities.

Trump on the other hand in just two short years has done an incredible job brining back manufacturing to America. THIS is why black and hispanic unemployment is at its lowest EVER. And Trump is just getting started. in another 2 years, america will be GREAT AGAIN. FUCK YOU, OBAMA you race-bating pos…

There’s one thing about Obama that I’ll be forever grateful for and that is that he’s such a blatant liar that EVERYTHING he says usually has a video somewhere that contradicts what ever he’s now saying

The only two things I do when I hear the name Obama is; Laugh and Pray he goes to Prison.

Man! Barack or Barry or whatever his real name is has got to be the dumbest son of a bitch that ever walked on two legs! A bag of hammers has a higher IQ. It gets to the point where it’s pathetic to even hear his voice. With all the ums and ahs next to the I me soliloquies, you wonder when he’s going to end up in the grave so you can piss on it.
