WH Advisor Admits Trump Lied About GDP

WH Advisor Admits Trump Lied About GDP

President Donald Trump began his week on his phone, lashing out at real and perceived foes on Twitter after last week's news cycle took a toll on the White House.

Hassett also ducked a follow-up question about where Trump got a quote he attribute to President Obama on Monday.

Obama is going after President Donald Trump hard as he campaigns for Democrats leading up to midterm elections - something he previously said he didn't intend to do.

"What is true it is that it's the highest in 10 years. And at some point, somebody probably conveyed it to him, adding a zero to that, and they shouldn't have done that".

Standing behind the same podium where the former White House press secretary Sean Spicer once falsely claimed that Trump's inauguration drew the largest crowd there had ever been, Hassett thanked the reporter for the chance to set the record straight.

'I'm not the chairman of council of Twitter advisers, ' Hassett quipped.

Asked if Obama ever said that, Hassett pleaded ignorance. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this!

"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". Public appearances at the briefings are typically used to praise Trump.

"He just says, 'Well, I'm going to negotiate a better deal.' Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that?" They also occurred at the end of Jimmy Carter's and the start of Ronald Reagan's - leaving Trump and Obama in an unusual tug-of-war for credit. But, as Mallin pointed out, Obama never mentioned the GDP.
