Donald Trump is a serial liar and master of puffery. But don’t take it from the liberal media and fake news outlets. As Trump marks his first year in office, here is a look back at the predictions that “the Donald” himself personally affirmed would happen under his leadership. To paraphrase Fox News, the president’s favorite channel, you decide whether to believe him.

Because I’m going to be working for you, I’m not going to have time to go play golf. Believe me. Believe me folks.
And believe me, the day Obama goes off, and he leaves, and goes out to the golf course for the rest of his life to play golf, when [the Federal Reserve] raises interest rates, you’re going to see some very bad things happen.
I am the least racist person that you’ve ever met. Believe me.
Not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists.
In a Trump administration, our Christian heritage will be cherished, protected, defended, like you’ve never seen before. Believe me.
Torture works, OK, folks? You know, I have these guys [saying] “Torture doesn’t work!” Believe me, it works.
