Are Trump policies boosting the U.S. economy?

He is using the economic numbers as a weapon against Democrats

He is using the economic numbers as a weapon against Democrats

Trump tweeted that the nation's gross domestic product growth was higher than the unemployment rate for the first time in more than a century.

"Since 1948, there have been 63 quarters with a GDP growth rate higher than avg quarterly unemployment rate", Fox News Research wrote in a tweet, listing the most recent quarters with GDP growth higher than the unemployment rate as Q2 2018 and Q1 2006.

"'President Trump would need a magic wand to get to 4% GDP, ' stated President Obama".

Of course, anyone paying attention at all during Obama's tenure in the White House knows this is peak absurdity; Obama himself frequently fomented hatred and division based on race, gender, economic status, and political ideology. Well, it depends on who you ask. "It's the highest in 10 years".

Hassett said he suspected someone "added a 0" to the fact as it was "conveyed" to the president. The Trump administration has recently promoted false statistics on jobless rates and the stock market's performance as it has touted Trump's record on the economy.

While that was good news about the economy, Lemon was struck by the president's inability to tell the truth.

"Some of those jobs from the past are just not gonna come back", Obama said in a clip starting Trump's video.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took notice of Obama's pot-calling-the-kettle-black speech and blasted the former president in a Twitter thread for his blatant contribution to the brokenness of American politics and our current state of discord. Hassett's office took responsibility in a tweet for providing Sanders with inaccurate data.

That's not the case for the S&P 500 Index, which has increased about 35% since Trump was elected on November 8, 2016.
