President Trump was incorrect when he tweeted that more than a century had passed since quarterly economic growth last outpaced the jobless rate, the White House's top economist said Monday.

Gasparino was writing in response to a tweet from Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.

On Monday morning, Trump tweeted that "The GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!"

Also expected to appear on Friday is John Dean , former Nixon White House attorney and Watergate whistleblower. And Kavanaugh is so anti-choice that he even refers to birth control as "abortion-inducing drugs ".


Gasparino responded with a mix of snark and anger.

"President Obama vs. President Trump, the leader vs. the tweeter, yes we can vs. way too tan".

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.

U.S. marking 17th anniversary of 9/11 attacks
Trump has sometimes awkwardly assumed the consoler role required of presidents in the course of his year-and-a-half in office. The names are read by victims' loved ones, some of them not yet born when the attacks happened.


Hours later, Hassett said during a White House briefing that the GDP rate was higher than the unemployment rate for the first time in a decade. Yet it was 50 words about the media that undercut Obama's credibility with the absurd claim that he - unlike Trump - didn't "threaten the freedom of the press".

Hassett said he suspected someone "added a 0" to the fact as it was "conveyed" to the president. "What I do know is that's the highest in 10 years".

While that was good news about the economy, Lemon was struck by the president's inability to tell the truth. "When President Obama left, after eight years in office, he had only created 195 000 jobs for African-Americans". "You'd have to talk to the president about where the number came from, but the correct number is 10 years", Hassett said.

Modric is great, but Messi is much better: Luis Enrique
Atletico Madrid and Brazil left-back Filipe Luis, who knows all about the Argentine's prowess, has weighed into the debate. Lionel Messi was recently snubbed for the UEFA Player of the Year though, with Luka Modric taking the trophy home.


That's not the case for the S&P 500 Index, which has increased about 35% since Trump was elected on November 8, 2016.
