We know that he lies.
We know that his lies know no bounds.
Now we know that President Trump will dredge up 5-year-old history to claim as his own.
On December 20, Donald Trump claimed that he was the President responsible for signing the legislation, Veterans Choice.
Veterans Choice allows veterans to see doctors outside of the Veteran's Affairs system, giving our service men and women more freedom and choice when it comes to their healthcare. The law was actually signed by President Obama and was co-sponsored by Presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, and the late John McCain.
To make it even worse, Trump originally claimed responsibility for the piece of legislation back in March of this year. He originally spoke about his supposed involvement with Veterans Choice by low-key slandering the late Senator.
"McCain didn't get the job done for our great vets and the VA, and they knew it."
Bizarrely, Trump drudged up the past by tweeting that signing Veterans Choice into legislation was one of his accomplishments of 2018.

This legislation was actually signed into law by President Obama in 2014 https://t.co/S4AI388prs https://t.co/ijvYOwRifO— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar)1576899480.0
Another Tweet directed the President to AP News' fact check of the same claim.
@realDonaldTrump AP FACT CHECK: Trump takes credit for Obama's gains for veterans https://t.co/TbWJs0xBZJ— Denise Shearin (@Denise Shearin)1576899635.0
The rest of Twitter did not hold back on reminding the President of the the actual facts instead of his alternative ones.
