Trump says ‘NASA was Closed & Dead’ before he took charge. That’s not true.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday (Aug. 5) to announce that he brought NASA back from being “Closed & Dead.” 

In a tweet posted Wednesday, Trump said that he had resurrected the space agency. But the claim doesn’t hold up under scrutiny: NASA has never closed since it was founded in 1958, and it has certainly never been “dead.”
