At a campaign rally in Daytona, Florida on Wednesday, Donald Trump spoke about watching a video that allegedly showed Iranian officials “pouring” $400 million off of a plane on the same day Tehran released four American prisoners back in January.
Both U.S. officials and Trump’s own campaign staff were quick to dismiss Trump’s assertion that any such video even existed. Nevertheless, the real estate magnate continued repeating his claim.
But by Friday, Trump appeared to change his story when he tweeted the following:
The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!

So there you go! Donald Trump actually admitted he was wrong. Although, I wouldn’t expect it to happen again.
