Is there anything in the article you allege to be not true WB? Trump even acknowledged Obama's economic numbers back than. He called it a bubble back than, lol. The truth is the economic figures are good but not as good as Obama's.


Trump acknowledged that Obama had 2% or less growth in all of his 8 years?
Acknowledged that Obama accumulated 10 trillion in new debt in 8 years, more than any president, more than all previous presidents COMBINED?
"WB making shit up" is apparently WB citing the absolute facts:
The economy is up to 3.4% annual growth in just Trump's first 8 months, higher than ANY of Obama's entire 8 years.
The stock market is up 25% since Trump was elected.
Unemployment and disability are down, the rises in disability and food stamps during Obama's 8 years completely reversed because there are now jobs for these people.
Unemployment is the lowest since 2001.
Manufacturing has risen to the highest since 2004.
Illegal border crossings are down 78% since Trump took office.

What exactly is "made up"?


Did Obama leave office with an economy that was already booming? Yep and if you reread the WP article it was actually doing a bit better. I suspect Trump will not be handing the next President an economy better than what he inherited but Obama certainly did.

Fair play!

It seems pretty clear not only to me, but to all in the business-reporting media but blatant DNC-spokespieces, that Trump is advocating a decrease in regulations and taxes that is pro-business, and that has resulted in 3.4% growth in the U.S. economy, in barely his first 6 months, something Obama never achieved in 8 entire years.

Not since Ronald Reagan's turnaround in policy in 1982/1983 have I ever seen a similar complete reversal and growth of the economy, that is clearly a direct result of implemented policy.

If you ignore all the growth that happened sure. This thread starts with a comparison of Obama's last quarter to Trump's first. Trump's isn't bad but it's not as high as Obama's. And if wages don't grow and Trumcare ends up being more expensive with less coverage I think the GOP isn't going to retain it's majority with just white nationalism.

Fair play!

That's such B.S., M E M.

3.4% growth in Trump's first 8 months, is clearly higher than 2% growth, at best, in any of Obama's 8 years.

Kayleigh McEnany, who used to be a Trump propagandist on CNN before becoming one on the Pravda-esque Trump TV, thinks the fact that we've added more than 1 million jobs since Trump took office shows that he has ďclearly steered the economy back in the right direction.Ē

What she forgot to mention, though, is that this is slightly worse than things were at the end of President Barack Obama's term. That's right: The economy added an average of 181,000 jobs a month in Obama's last six months in office compared to an average of 179,000 a month in President Trump's first six months. That's a statistically insignificant difference ó and a negative one at that ó which shows that Trump hasn't made a diffference on the economy. And why would he have? He hasn't cut taxes or increased infrastructure spending or done anything else that would meaningfully boost GDP. (Going golfing and tweeting #MAGA a lot don't count.)...


Despite the headline I'm sure it won't be the last time. Sad how some celebrate less just because it's a republican in the WH.

Fair play!

Because the Washington Post has always been so fair in their reporting on Trump.
I'm SO SURE they'd never slant the news against Trump, or selectively omit news that reflects favorably on Trump!

Except they have a long history of partisanly trying to destroy Trump.
