The day after the President’s State of the Union speech, Donald Trump Tweeted that viewership for his first State of the Union address was “the highest number in history.”
It’s like the inauguration all over again, where Trump Tweeted that his crowd was the largest. And just like that claim, this one is also false.
We did the math: 45.6 M people watched Trumps’ address. That’s less than the 48 M who watched Barack Obama’s first SOTU eight years ago and much less than the 51.7 viewers for President George W. Bush.
