Fake News Report claiming President Trump offered asylum to Russian Jehovah’s Witnesses (debunked)

A fake news report claiming President Trump offered asylum to Russian Jehovah’s Witnesses after Russia banned the religion has been debunked. Fake news is on the rise and it’s imperative the public utilize tools to determine fake news from the real truth. Like many fake news stories, this claim mixes fact with fiction. The story was reported on several fake news sites according to a PolitiFact article and went viral on social media networks. President Trump has never stated he was offering asylum to Russian Jehovah’s Witness. The news that Russia has banned Jehovah’s Witnesses from practicing in the country is truthful, but the report that President Trump has offered help or assistance to those in Russia is not.
