Top White House economic adviser, Kevin Hassert, admits Trump tweeted false claim about the economy
Kevin Hassett, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, on Monday told reporters President Donald Trump tweeted an incorrect claim that US gross domestic product had surpassed the rate of unemployment for the first time in more than a century.

"The GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!" Trump tweeted Monday morning.

Hassett told reporters the GDP growth rate is higher than the unemployment rate for the first time in 10 years, not 100 as the president suggested in his tweet. The chief White House economic adviser said he wasn't sure how the error occurred but speculated that an adviser "added a zero" when conveying the information to the president.

Re: Top White House economic adviser, Kevin Hassert, admits Trump tweeted false claim about the economy

Trump's claim that GDP tops the jobless rate for the first time in 'over 100 years' is not even close to correct


To believe the president's claim, you would have to overlook the dozens of times this has happened since 1948, when the government began collecting the official data series tracking the gross domestic product and the unemployment rate.

In fact, the annual rate of real GDP growth, measured on a quarterly basis, has topped the jobless rate more than 60 times.

Not, as Trump claimed, "only once in the last century".

Stated another way, during the 70 years since the government has tracked growth and unemployment, the real GDP growth rate has been higher than the jobless rate more than 20 percent of the time.

At a briefing with reporters Monday, Kevin Hassett, chairman of Trump's Council of Economic Advisors, conceded that Trump's claim was not true.

Trump's a busy man with the half the world chewing at his ass. He read what he was told. Sabateurs are about. Considering that his every word get's scrutinized, he wouldn't pop off something like that unless he thought it was for real. Personally, I don't give a crap about the discepancy.

He was trying to be so serious looking right at the camera, saying Tru was p bbn lied, Trump said this bla,bla bla

And then he said that some news paper is keeping tracks of how many times Tru ml p lies or speaks missing Info,lol

I wonder if they did this to Muslim obama?
