Trump Wrongly Touts Economy Growth Milestone vs. Unemployment

He retweeted Obama on Jimmy Kimmel's'Mean tweets segment of his late night show He retweeted Obama on Jimmy Kimmel's'Mean tweets segment of his late night show

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro derided Obama for a "full-throttled, savage attack" on Trump.

GDP growth exceeded the jobless rate as recently as the first quarter of 2006, when unemployment was about 4.7 percent and quarterly GDP growth was 5.4 percent, government data show.

Fox Business' daytime anchor Neil Cavuto has called out Trump on a number of occasions when the president has bashed the "fake news" and the "swamp".

I don't think we need to go to the judges' scorecards to know who won this battle.

Despite Trump's incorrect tweet, both figures are good for Trump, with the GDP growth rate the highest in nearly four years and the unemployment rate the lowest it has been in nearly 18 years. "And I can say that at least we numbers geeks here at the White House are grateful for - when the press finds mistakes that we make, we don't like making mistakes - but we're grateful when they're pointed out, because we want to correct them". After sharing this fact, Lemon played a clip of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissing Bob Woodward's new book, Fear: Trump In The White House, as "careless and reckless".

The White House on Monday acknowledged the president tweeted inaccurate claims about the economy. "We have just begun".

In his fiery speeches and Twitter blitzes, President Donald Trump has forcefully claimed ownership of the United States economy's vigorous health while denigrating the legacy of his predecessor Barack Obama, who was in office during most of the past decade's expansion. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this!

"Some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back", Obama said, during a town hall in June 2016 criticizing Trump's campaign.

"Are you kidding?" asked an incredulous Pirro. "And, usually, the answer is he doesn't have an answer".

The economy was, however, struggling when Obama took office in 2009.

Hassett said he suspected someone "added a 0" to the fact as it was "conveyed" to the president. "It's the highest in 10 years".

They also occurred at the end of Mr Jimmy Carter's and at the start of Mr Ronald Reagan's - leaving Mr Trump and Mr Obama in an unusual tug of war for credit. Trump said Monday in a posting on Twitter.
