Fox News Actually Corrects Donald Trump's Embarrassingly Blatant Economy Lie

"It was 100% my fault and I apologized immediately", Hassett said, hand over his heart.

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. "It's the highest in 10 years".

"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. Yet it was 50 words about the media that undercut Obama's credibility with the absurd claim that he - unlike Trump - didn't "threaten the freedom of the press". He also brushed off assertions that former President Barack Obama is also responsible for the current economic turn, but denied that he was doing this in response to Obama's speech on the topic, which Trump attacked on Twitter. Well, it depends on who you ask. "And at some point somebody probably conveyed it to him adding a zero to that and they shouldn't have done that".

"President Obama vs. President Trump, the leader vs. the tweeter, yes we can vs. way too tan". He said the "100 years" statement was a mistake Hassett himself could not explain.

Kevin Hassett, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, speaking in the White House press room, said he did not know how Trump obtained the false information.

Trump said on Monday in a posting on Twitter. Millions of Americans who can't stand Obama will just tune out the rhetoric, so different than Trump's and so missed by his supporters, but Obama's view of his successor is shared by prominent conservatives such as columnists George Will and Michael Gerson and Sens.
