When Trump added an extra zero in his GDP tweet

Kevin Hassett, the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, acknowledged to reporters later in the day that the president's tweet was incorrect.

Gasparino was writing in response to a tweet from Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.

Wolfers went on Twitter to provide his proof against Trump's statements, taking two full tweets to show every time the GDP growth rate was higher than the unemployment rate in the last 100 years, a total of 60 times.

Gasparino responded with a mix of snark and anger.

"I can tell you what is true", Hassett said, when asked about the inconsistency at a White House briefing on Monday.

"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".

Trump has repeatedly threatened to shut down the government when funding runs out on September 30 if the U.S. He told The Daily Beast that he had won VIP tickets and met Trump before the rally started for a photo-op.

Fox Business' daytime anchor Neil Cavuto has called out Trump on a number of occasions when the president has bashed the "fake news" and the "swamp".

"There's no question that there's a mixture of credit involved. When President Obama left, after eight years in office, he had only created 195 000 jobs for African-Americans".

The economy grew at a 4.2% rate in the second quarter, the fastest since the third quarter of 2014 - again, under Mr Obama. Economists do not usually compare the GDP rate, which measures the pace of economic growth, with the unemployment rate in that way. "I have to kind of remind them, actually, those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016", he said in an address in IL.

He also noted that the fruits of the economic recovery have not been shared evenly.

That's not the case for the S&P 500 Index, which has increased about 35% since Trump was elected on November 8, 2016.
