Here Are The News Outlets That Repeated Trump’s Lie About 5,000 Sprint Jobs

Donald Trump did not get Sprint to bring 5,000 jobs back to the United States.

Sprint announced the plan to hire 5,000 people in April of 2015, and its parent company Softbank has had plans for jobs in the United States for months, long before Trump won.

Trump tried to take credit for this announcement as something that happened after he won the 2016 presidential election.

Many news organizations repeated his absolute lie in their headlines, without checking the facts of his claim and/or pointing out the lie in their headlines. Here they are:
