FALSE Claim by Charlie Kirk: “2 hour wait minimum at most polling places in Maricopa. Democrats running elections here knew this would happen. Traffic jam by design. DONT LET THEM DO 2020 AGAIN.”

Claim by Citizens for Sanity: President Joe Biden and Democrats “send a fortune to Ukraine but nothing for our children.”

PolitiFact rating: Pants on Fire (One of the efforts from Democrats — an expansion of the child tax credit that was included in Biden’s American Rescue Plan of 2021 — paid out $92 billion to U.S. families with children, or 1.5 times the amount that the U.S. has spent so far on Ukraine.)

Ad comparing spending on Ukraine, US children is ridiculously wrong

TRUE Did he say it?: Former U.S. President Donald Trump said in an interview about GOP candidates before the 2022 midterm elections: “I think if they win, I should get all the credit, and if they lose, I should not be blamed at all.”

Snopes.com rating: Correct Attribution

FALSE (International: Australia): Claim by Joel Jammal: Former US vice-president Mike Pence acted improperly by not excluding contested states’ votes from the 2020 US election result.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (Mr Pence had no power to exclude votes. Even if he did, no state legislatures formally contested the result of the public vote.)

Pence powerless to stop Biden becoming president
