White House Corrects Trump’s Tweet on GDP, Unemployment

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to attack Democrats

Listening to Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett discuss the effects of the Trump administration's tax, regulatory and economic policies, one might infer that rationality reigns in the White House.

From a White House that coined the term "alternative facts", admissions are rare and apologies even rarer.

This time to tout his economic success, with the GDP growth rate hitting 4.2 percent for the last quarter and topping the unemployment rate of 3.9 percent, something Trump claimed "for the first time in 100 years".

In response, Trump did what he does best - talked utter bollocks that made little to no sense.

Woods and McIlroy still had to hit the shots and make the putts. "I hit it just as good and putt it just as good", Woods said . Keegan Bradley and Hideki Matsuyama both carded 64s and Rickie Fowler - playing alongside Woods - posted another 65.

He pointed out it was the first time in 10 years that GDP growth exceeded the unemployment rate.

"The data are clear that the expansion began under President Obama and if you just draw a straight line through much of it, you'll find that Trump is just riding on the trends that he inherited", said Mr Bernstein. "And at some point somebody probably conveyed it to him adding a zero to that and they shouldn't have done that". On Rosh Hashanah Hassett addressed the White House press briefing to review the ISM Purchasing Managers' Index, durable goods, employment and other statistics to bolster the proposition that we need more Trump.

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. "I have to kind of remind them, actually, those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016", he said in an address in IL. He said the "100 years" statement was a mistake Hassett himself could not explain.
