It is a shame how you are just a press release for the @whitehouse

bbc.com/news/world-458…

theatlantic.com/business/archi…

fortune.com/2018/06/07/tru…

If you only used facts (something Trump has never done)

apnews.com/1759c19598e943…
"Due to President Trump’s pro-growth policies, real gross domestic product (GDP) growth exceeded 3 percent over the last four quarters."

NOT Historic.

statista.com/statistics/188…

Not REMOTELY Historic!

multpl.com/us-gdp-growth-…
"Real GDP grew at annual rates of 3.5 percent in the third quarter of 2018 and 4.2 percent in the second quarter."

Again, NOT Historic

thehill.com/homenews/admin…

"There were eight quarters of growth of at least 3 percent, including three of 4 percent or better.
The highest GDP growth of Obama's presidency was during the third quarter of 2014, when it hit 5.2 percent."

"More than 4.6 million jobs have been created since President Trump’s election and the unemployment rate remains at 3.7 percent, the lowest rate in nearly 50 years."
You realize Obama created more jobs per year than Trump has and lowered unemployment far more than Trump has???

Maybe if you used FACTs and did some research - perhaps use GOOGLE?

data.bls.gov/timeseries/ces…

Take the spreadsheet and add up the months of each year....
Here - I did it for you:

2013 2,301,000
2014 3,005,000
2015 2,712,000
2016 2,344,000

Obama's Numbers last 4 years

Trump?

2017 2,188,000
2018 so through November 2,268

Unemployment?

data.bls.gov/timeseries/lns…

Going from 9.9 to 4.8 under Obama

4.8 to 3.7 under Trump
"This is the seventh time this year that the unemployment rate has been below 4.0 percent."

Someone did the heavy lifting to get it from 9.9% to 4.8%.....
"Prior to this year, the unemployment rate had fallen below 4 percent only five times since 1970."

Easy to go from 4.8% to 3.7% - harder to go from 9.9 to 4.8.....

"Eighteen States recently reached record-low unemployment rates."

A lot of red states are not....
bls.gov/web/laus/laums…

Coal mining states, where are those coal miners jobs?

"The unemployment rate for African Americans in November fell to 5.9 percent, which is the lowest rate on record." This IS a White House Press Release!

data.bls.gov/timeseries/lns…

16.5-7.8 Obama now 5.9
So African American unemployment went from 16.5 to 7.8 under Obama (over 100% reduction!) and has gone from 7.8 to 5.9 under Trump. Remind me again who did the most work on this?
"Asian and Hispanic-American unemployment rates reached record lows in May and October of this year, respectively."

data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS…

13.0 to 5.6 under Obama for Hispanics. Over 100% again!

5.9 to 4.5 under Trump. Again, who did the most work here?
"Initial weekly jobless claims have hit a nearly 50-year low under President Trump."

We know who got us here.... I have already documented that....

"Americans are seeing more money in their pockets thanks to the booming economy."

No, they are not.

forbes.com/sites/joshbers…
Combining the change in real average hourly earnings with no change in the average workweek resulted in a 1.0-percent increase in real average weekly earnings over this period."

bls.gov/news.release/p…

Maybe if you read others' research?
vox.com/2018/12/7/1813…

Real Reporting?
angrybearblog.com/2018/12/real-w…

Trump blatantly lied about Military Pay Raises!

politifact.com/truth-o-meter/…

federalpay.org/military/raises

"In 2017, real median household income rose to a post-recession high."

You ARE one huge press release. Sad.

thebalance.com/what-is-averag…
Trump has a great source to ask about this - the @uscensusbureau

census.gov/library/storie…

"2017 Income Higher but not Really"

"Without adjusting for the change in the income questions, 2017 has the highest median household income on record (since 1967). When you adjust for
the change, median household income in previous years was just as high."

"President Trump’s policies are helping to lift Americans out of poverty."

No - Poverty went down more under Obama:

census.gov/library/storie…

statista.com/statistics/200…

From 15.1% in 2010 to 12.7% in 2016.
Trump has gone from 12.7% to 12.3% Again - who did the heavy lifting?

"African-American and Hispanic-American poverty rates reached record lows of 21.2 percent and 18.3 percent, respectively, in 2017."

WOW! Did you even bother looking this up?

Again - if you only did some
research:

usnews.com/news/healthies…

"The bad news is that poverty still exceeds the 11.3 percent rate of 2000 and far too many people are poor in a country that is so rich. Another bit of bad news is that things look even worse if we use what many scholars like myself believe
But here is the first one that you actually have right!

politifact.com/west-virginia/…

statista.com/statistics/205…

So far you are at 1 of 205....

"Since the election, 4.6 million Americans have been lifted off of food stamps."

Back to being a press release:

factcheck.org/2018/03/oh-sna…
pbs.org/newshour/polit…

"Consumer confidence has soared under President Trump, recently reaching an 18-year high."

but....

bankingjournal.aba.com/2018/11/consum…

data.oecd.org/leadind/consum…
2 so far out of 205....

"President Trump is delivering on his promise to bring back American manufacturing.

Casey Mchone, Donald Trump

The National Association of Manufacturers’ Outlook Index had the highest annual average in its history over the past year.
468,000 manufacturing jobs have been created since President Trump’s election."

Are you counting these as 4 or 1?

data.bls.gov/timeseries/ces…

Obama went down from 12,561,000 to 12,369.

Trump went to 12,807,000 so far.

So 3 right now....
"Small Business optimism jumped to a record high under President Trump, according to a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

The NFIB’s Small Business Optimism Index broke a 35-year record in August."

At what cost? You are about to talk tax cut...
