Donald Trump Actually Admits He Was Wrong. Hell Officially Frozen Over?
This is an event that almost never happens, so when it does you have to stop and appreciate it because it may never, ever, happen again. Trump is finally admitting that the video he claimed to see of people unloading $400 million in cash for payment to Iran doesn’t actually exist, and he was simply misinformed.
He said on twitter
The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!

Here’s a look at what he was saying before he realized that, as is usually the case, he was totally wrong.
“Iran provided all of that footage, the tape of taking that money off the airplane,” he told a crowd in Florida. “It’s a military tape; it’s a tape that was a perfect angle, nice and steady, nobody getting nervous because they’re gonna be shot because they’re shooting a picture of money pouring off a plane.”
Still, it’s not often that Trump admits when he’s made a mistake. The Republican presidential nominee frequently stands by his inaccurate claims, including that former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski never grabbed reporter Michelle Fields ― despite video evidence. He’s repeatedly claimed that he saw Muslims in New Jersey cheering on 9/11, a story that has been widely debunked and one that public officials from that time don’t recall.
