  1. "We can’t hand over our government to someone whose deepest, darkest secrets may be in the hands of our enemies."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Trump suggested that foreign governments "have a blackmail file" of emails from a private server Hillary Clinton used.

    FBI Director James Comey called Clinton's handling of classified information "extremely careless" but did not recommend criminal charges following an investigation into her use of private servers while she was Secretary of State.

  2. “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.”

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Trump said this to Hillary Clinton during the second presidential debate.

    At another point in the night, he also told her that if he became president, "You'd be in jail."

  3. "She exceeded her authority, she broke the law in a way that led to severe consequences."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych said this about his political rival Yulia Tymoshenko.

    In a case widely viewed as politically motivated, Tymoshenko went to prison in 2011 for "criminally exceeding her powers" in a gas deal she negotiated with Russia while serving as Ukraine's Prime Minister. She was freed in 2014 in the midst of mass protests that pushed Yanukovych from power. For several years before Yanukovych’s ouster, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort worked with the Ukrainian politician to rehabilitate his image, and has since advised Yanukovych’s former party in Ukraine.

  4. "I don't care what people say about me. Right now I care about my country. "

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak said this in 2011.

    The comments came as protestors in Cairo's Tahrir Square called for him to step down after nearly 30 years in power.

  7. "I am not frightening, I am not a bad person at all."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Alexander Lukashenko, the authoritarian president of Belarus, said this in an interview in which he embraced the label of "last dictator in Europe."

    "I don't really understand what a dictator is, but on the other hand I sometimes, in a nice way, envy myself," he continued. "They say that even bad publicity is good publicity."
