As midterm polls approach, Trump insists booming US economy is not Obama's

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

CNBC also notes that "Trump's claim that GDP tops the jobless rate for the first time in "over 100 years" is not even close to correct".

"One amusing aspect of the flap over Trump's comments about last time GDP was higher than unemployment rate: Whether it is 12 years or 100 years, it still never happened under [former President Barack] Obama", Strassel wrote.

"So I can tell you what is true", Hassett, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, said from the podium of the White House briefing room in response to a question about Trump's tweet from early this morning.

While the numbers cited by Trump are true, the truth in how long it has been since that last occurred sees Trump well short, with the GDP growth rate outstripping the unemployment rate most recently in the first quarter of 2006.

Trump regularly deletes and re-posts tweets to correct misspellings or to rephrase his points. President Trump deregulated the economy; we talked about how that has spurred growth.

By the time Obama left office, the unemployment rate had declined from a high approaching 8 percent at the start of his administration to just under 5 percent, but was beginning to tick back upward, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"He was the president for the eight years when the cause was being created", Christie said on "ABC This Week" on Sunday. Just 17 Percent of College Graduates Have Real Jobs Waiting", after Obama spanked Mitt Romney amongst young voters in 2012 by a margin of 67 percent to 30 percent, "Over 80 percent of all graduating seniors have zilch in the way of jobs lined up for their post-campus lives. He reached beyond standard growth and jobs numbers to invoke a roaring Trump boom, enthusing over capital investment, business optimism, capital goods shipments and the purchasing managers index.

"'Many, many jobs were lost, ' the coal miner said, 'and many towns were destroyed by this". The company's research team tweeted out a list of the recent quarters when the GDP has been higher than the unemployment.

A lot of them were lies.

After relaying an incident in which he had inadvertently given an incorrect figure to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, Hassett repeated that the president had made a mistake. Unlike Obama, Trump chose to incentivize job creators with the "Tax Cuts Jobs Act" so they could invest back into their businesses and pay their blue-collar employees more. Trump has systematically dismantled Obama's legacy via deregulation, tax cuts and by eliminating the individual mandate in Obamacare, so it's understandable why Obama is desperate for accolades. They have since doubled to $67 a barrel.
