Trump claims credit for the economy. Not so fast, says Obama

President Barack Obama called for the'restoration of honesty and decency and lawfulness in our government and ripped President Donald Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in response to Obama's speech that, "The more former President Obama speaks about the "good ol years" of his presidency, the more likely President Trump is to get re-elected".

GDP growth exceeded the jobless rate as recently as the first quarter of 2006, when unemployment was about 4.7% and quarterly GDP growth was 5.4%, government data show. Economists do not usually compare the GDP rate, which measures the pace of economic growth, with the unemployment rate in that way. "From the initial fact to what the president said, I don't know the whole chain of command", Hassett told reporters on Monday.

The first two numbers are correct, although they measure completely different things, and in different ways. "We will do MUCH better than this! We have just begun", Trump tweeted.

"Some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back", Obama said, during a town hall in June 2016 criticizing Trump's campaign.

"I'm not the chairman of the council of Twitter advisers", he said. The U.S.is now its 10th year of economic growth, and in its longest period of growth with 95 straight months of job creation.

Hurricane Florence strengthens to Category 4: What that means for Duke, Durham
At that point the storm was centered about 1,170 miles (1,880 km) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina , the NHC said . The storm was located roughly 1,170 miles east-southeast of the Cape Fear region, and remained a risky Category 4 storm.

Hassett said he suspected someone "added a 0" to the fact as it was "conveyed" to the president. The bulk of that decade of growth was under Obama's presidency, and can fairly be credited to him.

Recessions bookended the start and end of George W. Bush's presidency and marked the end of George HW Bush's.

In the Donald Trump era, Rick Wilson has made a name for himself as one of the more fiery members of the small minority of conservatives who are willing to speak out against Trump.

"It is wrong for a President to use divisive language", Rubio factitiously agreed with former President Obama, before listing examples of Obama's divisive tactics, such as labeling opponents of same-same marriage as "bigots", calling the pro-life movement a "war on women", categorizing those who want immigration laws enforced as "racists", and suggesting Republicans are the "enemy of Hispanics".
