The number keeps going up. He’s claimed 30 times, and 40 times in the past.
According to his own campaign, which had to fess up after one of those stories was debunked, it is 21 times.
According to the Washington Times:
President Biden told workers at an Ohio plant that he’s traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan more than 50 times in his long political career but based on previous statements made during his presidential campaign that number doesn’t seem to add up.
“I’ve been in and out of Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq, I mean Iraq over 50 times, 48 times, and now what we are doing in Ukraine. Been there. Tell you what, you make a gigantic difference,” Mr. Biden told workers during a tour of United Performance Metals in Hamilton, Ohio.
Mr. Biden has traveled to Afghanistan and Iraq many times, including to visit his now-deceased son, Beau, who was serving in Iraq. But his statement more than doubled the number of trips he’s taken to those two countries, according to a 2019 campaign statement.
