Before Trump, Obama was an 'enemy of press freedom'

Before Trump, Obama was an 'enemy of press freedom'

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

But Trump is correct on his numbers this time, the GDP for this quarter is up 4.2 percent after only 2.2 percent growth in the first quarter of 2018.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took notice of Obama's pot-calling-the-kettle-black speech and blasted the former president in a Twitter thread for his blatant contribution to the brokenness of American politics and our current state of discord.

In 2006, unemployment was about 4.7 percent and quarterly GDP growth was significantly higher than it is now, at 5.4 percent, according to data. Several economists and journalists were quick to make that point on Twitter.

Hassett talked to reporters at a press briefing about Trump's positive effect on the economy. "I'm sorry, and again, I'm not the chairman of the Council of Twitter Advisers".

Administration officials rarely contradict the president in public and nearly never from behind the podium, well aware that Trump prizes loyalty above all else in his employees.

Last Friday, former President Obama attempted to take credit for the Trump economy, arguing that he started a trend of economic recovery that continued into Donald Trump's presidency.

Asked to clarify Trump's tweet about that, Hassett smiled and said: "I'don't know".
