Trump: ‘Fake News Spends as Little Time as Possible Discussing’ Good Economic News

This morning, President Donald Trump began the day as he’s started so many others of his presidency — by tossing out some tweets.

In this instance, the president grabbed his phone so he could sell both the GOP tax bill and the notion that the economy is doing better under his watch.

Regarding the unemployment numbers, it is interesting that POTUS is hyping up the unemployment rate as being at its lowest in 17 years. Prior to taking office, Trump consistently said the decreasing unemployment rate under President Obama was a “hoax” and the numbers were “fake,” going so far as to claim that the real unemployment rate was as high as 42%.
