Trump mocks Obama for doubting his economic plan

Trump mocks Obama for doubting his economic plan

"What I do know is that's the highest in 10 years". But as of 3.15 pm in NY, shortly after Hassett conceded the error and hours after the claim was challenged in news stories, Trump's false tweet about GDP and unemployment remained online.

The unemployment rate under Obama went from 7.8 percent to 4.6 percent while under Trump it's gone from 4.8 percent to 3.9 percent.

World class narcissist and former President, Barack Obama, gave a speech on Friday at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he brazenly laid the current state of political division within the country at the feet of President Donald Trump and the GOP. "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".

"When you don't tell the truth, when you just flat-out lie so much, how do you have any credibility, how can we believe that when it's the president himself who's lied thousands of times since he took the oath of office?" What magic wand do you have? "And usually the answer is, he doesn't have an answer", Obama continued.


Trump mistakenly said that Obama's "magic wand" quote was about GDP growth, but it was actually about lost jobs.

"The economic boom continues; it's the biggest story of 2018", White House economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, said in a video clip. So far, Trump has averaged 2.9 percent growth.

"President Trump is lying, even about good news", Lemon said. He told Salon's Amanda Marcotte that Republicans have a responsibility for allowing Trump to happen and for not doing more to rein him in. "The leadership thought, 'We're going to let this guy play it out".
