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

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

Kevin Hassett, chairman of President Trump's Council of Economic Advisers, offered a different view yesterday at a White House briefing.

Gasparino was writing in response to a tweet from Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.

Gasparino's tweet was referring to Trump's assertion that the GDP is now higher than the unemployment rate for the first time in "over 100 years".

Gasparino responded with a mix of snark and anger.

After disappearing from the spotlight for well over a year, former President Obama resurfaced at the University of IL on Friday just in time to take credit for the booming economy we've seen under President Trump. Small-business owners, as a whole, became far more optimistic about the economy after Trump's election.

Trump at times boasts about economic news that he sees on Fox News in the morning, but Fox was one of the news organizations that characterized the Twitter post as wrong.

Fox Business' daytime anchor Neil Cavuto has called out Trump on a number of occasions when the president has bashed the "fake news" and the "swamp".

The president claimed the GDP rate was the highest in 100 years. They claim Trump is merely enjoying gains started before he took office.

Rose didn't need any heroics to make par, but when his chip came up 16 feet short of the hole, there was work left to do. The torrential downpours over the past few days at Aronimink almost forced the tournament to be shortened to 54 holes.

"Are you kidding?" asked an incredulous Pirro.

The Trump administration has been in trouble in the past for inaccurate economic statistics with CNBC reporting that White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders made false claims about the black employment rate.

This wasn't the first time Hassett has weighed in on a presidential tweet.

"And at some point, somebody probably conveyed it to him, adding a zero to that, and they shouldn't have done that", he said. "We know that is not the ground you want to be on", said Kristen Soltis Anderson, a Republican pollster and Washington Examiner columnist on CNN.

Still, as Trump accurately points out, the recovery under Obama was marked by a slower rate of growth than what followed previous recessions, such as the recovery under President Ronald Reagan in 1983 and 1984. Democrats appear to have a better than even chance of winning the House and some pundits think the Senate might even be in play.

Liabilities for the president and Republicans were laid bare by the latest CNN/SSRS poll published on Monday. They also occurred at the end of Jimmy Carter's and the start of Ronald Reagan's, leaving Mr Trump and Mr Obama in an unusual tug-of-war for credit.
