Question: Is the economy any better since trump?
Fact Checked: No, it's about the same as last 2 years of Obama's term
1. The economy today is virtually indistinguishable from the economy several years before Trump took office, as measured by economic growth
Nope. The pace of hiring has been decent, but again, not better than it was under Obama.
Since Trump, non-farm payrolls have expanded by an average of 186,000 jobs per month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Unemployment rate has been falling, but that decline also began early in Obama’s presidency and has more recently leveled off. We’re 9 years into one of the longest recoveries on record
Wage growth has disappointed under Trump, as it did under Obama. Adjusted for inflation, hourly earnings grew little over past year, up just 0.4 percent in March compared to a year earlier.
Federal deficits as a share of the economy did grow a lot under Obama, at first. That was largely because we had a major financial crisis. Tax revenue fell dramatically. Meanwhile, federal spending rose, thanks both to automatic outlays
As the economy improved, those deficits shrank but did not go away.
CBO projects our debt-to-GDP ratio soon will be at its highest level since 1946.
That’s true: We haven’t seen the impact of the tax cuts yet. But their salutary effects are likely to be modest and short-lived, for a few reasons.
The biggest beneficiaries are the wealthiest Americans, who are less likely to spend their tax savings. The best hope for GDP, jobs and wage growth comes from the corporate-side cuts, which could increase investment over time.
Bingo. Presidents get too much blame when economy sours and too much credit when it improves
Not that you’d know from Trump. He claims economy is great and it's all due to him
Fact checked: just not true
