FAKE NEWS: Debunking “Milwaukee” Hoax

June 13, 2024

In a desperate attempt to get likes, Fake News Jake Sherman—who wasn't even in the room—falsely claimed that President Trump called Milwaukee a "horrible city." It's a total lie.


President Trump was explicitly referring to the problems in Milwaukee, specifically violent crime and voter fraud.


Multiple members of Congress—including members of Wisconsin's own delegation—instantly debunked Fake Sherman's false claim:


  • Rep. Bryan Steil (WI-01): “I was in the room. President Trump did not say this. There is no better place than Wisconsin in July.”


  • Rep. Glenn Grothman (WI-06): President Trump was “concerned about the election in Milwaukee” and “felt we need to do better in urban centers around the country.”


  • Rep. Tom Tiffany (WI-07)President Trump’s remarks were “in the context of election integrity … I think he lumps [election integrity and crime] together.”



  • Rep. Jim Banks (IN-03): "I was in the meeting. President Trump never disparaged Milwaukee. Just another Democrat hoax."
