Trump, Obama Battle Over Credit For Improving Economy

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to attack Democrats

Well, it depends on who you ask.

"What is true is that it's the highest in 10 years, and at some point somebody probably conveyed it to him adding a zero to that, and they shouldn't have done that", Hassett said. He inherited a dismal economy in the middle of a recession that lasted 18 months, facing what many feared would be a depression, and was able to turn it around in the first years of his presidency.

The GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!

Trump said on Monday in a posting on Twitter.

"If you look at the collective body of evidence, the notion that what we're seeing right now is just a continuation of trends is not super defensible", Hassett said.

The only catch.the claim was made by his boss, President Trump. Economists do not usually compare the GDP rate, which measures the pace of economic growth, with the unemployment rate in that way.

Patriots running back Jeremy Hill out for season with torn ACL
The Patriots also had running backs James White and Rex Burkhead active Sunday, while rookie Sony Michel was inactive. He played in 15 regular-season games with one start a year ago and posted nine receptions for 94 yards.

And indeed, most of Hassett's comments were flattering as he praised Trump's record on the economy.

With his most pointed criticism since leaving office 20 months ago, former President Barack Obama broke his silence on US politics in recent days, first on Friday at a college in IL to criticize "the politics of division and resentment and paranoia" of President Donald Trump and supporters in the Republican Party, then on Saturday at a rally in Anaheim while campaigning for seven Democratic congressional candidates.

While that was good news about the economy, Lemon was struck by the president's inability to tell the truth. "That's 700 000 African-Americans that are working now that weren't working when this president took place".

On Sunday, Trump said in a tweet that "the Stock Market is up nearly 50% since Election".

Before taking office, Trump regularly accused federal officials of falsifying economic data.
