Such a relationship between GDP and the unemployment rate has occurred many times, most recently in the first quarter of 2006, before the financial crisis pushed the unemployment rate high and economic growth slowed markedly. "What I do know is that's the highest in 10 years".

"It was 100% my fault and I apologized immediately", Hassett said, hand over his heart. "There's no answer to it", Obama said. After sharing this fact, Lemon played a clip of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissing Bob Woodward's new book, Fear: Trump In The White House, as "careless and reckless". He also brushed off assertions that former President Barack Obama is also responsible for the current economic turn, but denied that he was doing this in response to Obama's speech on the topic, which Trump attacked on Twitter. "What magic wand do you have?" he asked.

Wilson, who worked in the State Department under Dick Cheney and was a campaign strategist for Rudy Giuliani, spoke about his new book, ["Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever,"]( //www.amazon.com/dp/dp/1982103124/?tag=saloncom08-20) on "Salon Talks".
