It’s clear that the media, the Democrats, and the Republicans want President Trump, and America, to fail.
Unfortunately the economy isn’t sticking to the anti-Trump script.
President Trump said Saturday that there has been “very little reporting about the GREAT GDP numbers” showing that the economy grew at an annual rate of 3% in the third quarter.
“Best consecutive [quarters] in years!” Trump tweeted.
The Commerce Department reported Friday that the July-September advance in the gross domestic product — the country’s total output of goods and services — followed a 3.1% rise in the second quarter. It marked the first time in three years that growth has hit at least 3% for two consecutive quarters.
In a tweet sent minutes later, Trump thanked President Carter for suggesting during an interview that the news media have been overly critical of Trump.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter said during the interview with the New York Times published last Saturday. “I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
Carter also expressed a desire to work with the Trump administration on diplomatic solutions with North Korea.
