The Quint: Fact Checking Donald Trump’s Messy Speech

President Donald Trump on Thursday made a messy case that he "inherited a mess" from his predecessor. He also said his young administration is running "like a fine-tuned machine." Here's a look at those claims and how they compare to the facts.

TRUMP: "To be honest I inherited a mess. It's a mess. At home and abroad, a mess."
THE FACTS: A mess is in the eye of the beholder. But by almost every economic measure, President Barack Obama inherited a far worse situation when he became president in 2009 than he left for Trump. He had to deal with the worst downturn since the Depression.
