White House adviser admits Trump got his facts wrong in economy tweet

White House adviser admits Trump got his facts wrong in economy tweet

President Trump on Monday mocked his predecessor Barack Obama for saying more than two years ago that Trump would need a "magic wand" to bring back jobs to the United States. "What magic wand do you have?" he asked. What is true is that it's the highest in 10 years.

Nike orders rose in four-day period after Kaepernick ad debut
Many people have been taking to social media to rip apart Carrey's celebratory artwork, as well as Nike's deal with Kaepernick . Nike stock took an initial dip of 0.12% after the advert was revealed, but has since held up and had increased 1% by Friday.

"If you look at the collective body of evidence, the notion that what we're seeing right now is just a continuation of trends is not super defensible", Hassett said.

GDP growth exceeded the jobless rate as recently as the first quarter of 2006, when unemployment was about 4.7% and quarterly GDP growth was 5.4%, government data show. "And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations", Obama said in April of 2008. What magic wand do you have? He inherited a dismal economy in the middle of a recession that lasted 18 months, facing what many feared would be a depression, and was able to turn it around in the first years of his presidency.

The Queens MC said on her show that she would never speak poorly about someone else's child. "My money is very f**king long". And y'all sitting here making this s*** a joke? In her words: "You put your hands on certain people you gon die".

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.
