Fact check: The record behind Trump’s Cabinet meeting declarations – Chicago Tribune

President Donald Trump preened before his Cabinet and the cameras on Monday, making claims that are unsupported by the record.

A sampling from a portion of the Cabinet meeting opened to the press:

Trump said: “Great success, including MS-13. They’re being thrown out in record numbers and rapidly. And they’re being depleted. They’ll all be gone pretty soon.”

The facts: There’s no publicly available information to back up Trump’s claim that this violent gang is about to disappear.
