Trump made false claim about economy, GDP, unemployment rate: White House

And he tweeted a video showing him winning the presidential election

"I guess I have a magic wand", Trump said, pointing to 4.2 percent GDP growth in the last quarter.

Fox Business panelist Charles Gasparino on Tuesday criticized President TrumpDonald John TrumpOakland Raiders's Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem, then scores touchdown Trump declares state of emergency in Carolinas ahead of Hurricane Florence Ex-NFL player tears into Nike: Kaepernick ad "like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor" MORE's penchant for offering false information, saying in a tweet "when was the last time Donald said something that [wasn't] filled with utter bull--?"

"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. Economists do not usually compare the GDP rate, which measures the pace of economic growth, with the unemployment rate in that way.

Several conservatives jumped on Obama's assertion that President Donald Trump was brought to power by the forces in America that "keep us divided and keep us angry and keep us cynical".

"President Trump would need a magic wand to get to 4% GDP", stated President Obama.

Trump regularly deletes and re-posts tweets to correct misspellings or to rephrase his points.

Bolton To Set Out Tough U.S. Stance On International Criminal Court
In 2002, Bolton, then a State Department official, traveled to NY to ceremonially "unsign" the Rome Statute at the United Nations. He also cited a recent move by Palestinian leaders to have Israeli officials prosecuted at the ICC for human rights violations.

"It was 100% my fault and I apologized immediately", Hassett said, hand over his heart. "When you hear how great the economy's doing right now, let's just remember when this recovery started", he said in a speech kicking off a midterm campaign blitz.

The president seemed to be imprecisely referencing remarks made by Obama at a town hall event in 2016, in which he questioned promises from Trump regarding manufacturing jobs, not economic growth.

Hassett responded to this error by quipping, "I'm not the chairman of the Council of Twitter Advisers".

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., sent a series of tweets outlining times he felt Obama was guilty of using divisive language, including his infamous 2008 line where he accused "cynical" voters of clinging to "guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them".

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also took issue with Obama's attempt to blame America's divisions on Trump, calling it "richly ironic" for him to refer to Trump as a "symptom" of the divide.
