FALSE Claim via Social Media: “FBI director Wray confirms Joe Biden is under criminal investigation for Ukrainian bribes by the U.S. attorney in Delaware then tries to backpedal.”

Politifact rating: False (There is a continuing investigation in Delaware into Hunter Biden, the president’s son. Wray did not say that Joe Biden is also being investigated. He said he would not say who is or isn’t being investigated, or for what, as part of the FBI’s long-standing policy.)

Claim via Social media: Trump released JFK’s autopsy report, which proved more than one shooter.

USA Today rating: False (Trump did not declassify Kennedy’s autopsy. The document, which has been public since at least 1964, states that while Kennedy was hit by two bullets, they did not come from more than one angle.)

Claim by Donald Trump (R): Says Gov. Ron DeSantis “opposed my China tariffs and he heartlessly opposed” $28 billion for farm relief, which was paid for by China.

Politifact rating: False (DeSantis was lukewarm about the tariffs Trump imposed on China but not outright opposed. No evidence of him opposing or trying to block the farm relief package. China did not pay the U.S. billions in tariffs, and none of the farmer relief money was paid by China, as Trump said. American importers foot the bill.)

Trump keeps saying Ron DeSantis opposed China tariffs, farmer bailout. The evidence isn’t there
