Fact-checking Trump's Arizona speech, from the border wall to pioneer beauties

Fact-checking Trump\'s Arizona speech, from the border wall to pioneer beauties

President Donald Trump's rally on Friday was full of references to his agenda, accomplishments and, of course, kudos for Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally and criticisms of Democratic U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the two women in a tight contest to be Arizona's next U.S. senator.

Here's a look at the accuracy of some of Trump's claims.
McSally: A first in combat?

Trump was effusive in his praise for McSally, delivering the kind of full-throated endorsement she had been angling for.

He called her "the first female fighter pilot to fly combat missions in American history.

That is a central part of McSally's biography, and a fact attested to in a story released by the U.S. Air Force 12 years ago, before McSally entered the political arena. The article described McSally as the first female pilot in the history of the Defense Department to fly in combat.

Her first mission was in 1995, when she was deployed to Iraq, according to her biography.
