Top White House Economist Says Trump's GDP Claim Was Wrong

"There's no answer to it", Obama said.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders previously inaccurately claimed Trump had achieved more gains in African American employment than President Obama had in eight years.

Hassett said he could not explain how Trump obtained the false information.

On Friday, Obama said that the recovery started when he was in office. "When you hear about this economic miracle that's been going on, when the job numbers come out, monthly job numbers, suddenly Republicans are saying it's a miracle".

Last month, a Quinnipiac University poll showed the public may be starting to give Trump an increasing degree of credit for the rosy state of affairs: 52 per cent credited Trump, while only 37 per cent credited Obama.

"Well, how exactly are you going to do that?"

She later admitted: 'Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn't.
