How can we trust people who need to be fact checked?

It is so difficult to know who we can trust. I can give a person positional respect, but not completely trust them. Trust seems to take more time to earn and is easily broken. When it comes to politics and elected officials we are placed in a hard position. We SHOULD be able to trust them if we want them to represent us and hopefully we can respect them. We look to the platform that that candidate represents and then we have to decide if they actually represent what they say. How do we know which candidate we can trust? Hilary hammered hard that her website was fact checking everything that Donald was saying and every news outlet has their story on all the things that each candidate was wrong about. Are they simply negligent with their information or are they willingly lying to sway the masses?
