"One amusing aspect of the flap over Trump's comments about last time GDP was higher than unemployment rate: Whether it is 12 years or 100 years, it still never happened under [former President Barack] Obama", Strassel wrote.
"So I can tell you what is true", Hassett, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, said from the podium of the White House briefing room in response to a question about Trump's tweet from early this morning.
Most recently, in the first quarter of 2006, the gross domestic product grew at a rate of 5.4 percent, while the unemployment rate was 4.7 percent in January, 4.8 percent in February and 4.7 percent in March.

"The notion that what we're seeing right now is just a continuation of trends is not super defensible", he said.
The economy was, however, struggling when Obama took office in 2009.
In fact, Obama had been talking about manufacturing jobs - not economic growth - and had said, "He just says, 'Well, I'm going to negotiate a better deal.' Well- what - how exactly are you going to negotiate that?" 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. "It wasn't him." He added that the recovery under Mr. Obama was the weakest in history. Several economists and journalists were quick to make that point on Twitter.
