FALSEHOOD #14: Biden falsely claimed that he has been in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan over 40 times.
He said, “I’ve been in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan over 40 times.”
Biden made this false claim on March 1, 2022, during his State of the Union address.
EXPLANATION: This is false. Biden made a similar claim in 2019. Fact-checkers then determined that the real number was 21 times. Joe Biden hasn’t visited Iraq or Afghanistan since 2019. So, the number remains the same.
