Paul McDevit, who edits Feedback Column of the New Scientist noted in the 13 August 2016 edition of the New Scientist that Donald Trump is a man who doesn’t lie so much as see the truth as a bad investment. The following quotes are taken verbatim from his Twitter feed.

“Not only are wind farms disgusting looking, but even worse they are bad for people’s health” (23 April 2012).
“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that @BarackObama’s birth certificate is a fraud” (6 August 2012).
“Remember, hew “Environmental friendly” lightbulbs can cause cancer. Be careful—the idiots who came up with this stuff don’t care.” (17 October 2012).
“If we didn’t remove incredibly powerful fire retardant asbestos & replace it with junk that doesn’t work, the World Trade Center would never have burned down.” (17 October 2012).
“The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” (6 November 2012).
“How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s ‘birth certificate’ died in a plane crash today. All others lived” (12 December 2013)
“Snowing in Texas and Louisiana, record setting freezing temperatures throughout the country and beyond. Global warming is an expensive hoax!” (29 Januaty 2014)
