|Claim by Donald Trump (R): “The two Democrat Senators in Delaware, they got to choose and/or approve” David Weiss as U.S. Attorney for Delaware.|
|Claim via Social media: WHO admitted fully vaccinated mothers are having babies with heart defects.
USA Today rating: False (There was an increase in myocarditis cases, but the World Health Organization linked this to enterovirus infections, not COVID-19 vaccination. The organization’s statement doesn’t mention vaccines or COVID-19.)
|Claim by Joe Biden (D): President Joe Biden claimed in a Tuesday speech that U.S. production of the world’s microchips fell from 40% to 10%.
Check Your Fact rating: Mostly True (U.S. production of the world’s microchips has fallen from 37% in 1990 to 12% in 2020, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association.)
|FALSE||(International: United Kingdom): Claim by The Guardian: There has been an annual £40 billion tax drop because of Brexit.
Full Fact rating: False (This figure is based on a counterfactual estimate of the extra amount of tax revenue that might have been generated annually had the UK not voted to leave the EU. The actual amount of tax revenue generated in the UK has increased.)
