Even Fox News Shoots Down Donald Trump's Economy Boast

"We numbers geeks here at the White House are grateful when the press finds mistakes that we make - we don't like making mistakes but we're grateful when they're pointed out because we want to correct them".

"It was 100% my fault and I apologized immediately", Hassett said, hand over his heart.
