President Trump on Monday mocked former President Obama for betting against the economic boom under Mr. Trump, taunting him with the recent 4.2 percent GDP growth. "I had to kind of remind them, 'Actually those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016'". 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".
"Seeing Trump and Obama back to back really shows the contrast between these two". "He was trying to take credit for this incredible thing that's happening to our country".
Last week, The Washington Post counted 4,713 false or misleading claims by the president since he took office ― an average of eight per day. "We will do MUCH better than this!"
But as he answered a question from a reporter about Trump's tweet, he also bashfully recalled an earlier incident when he gave Sanders a "bad number".

Regardless of who claims what, here are some undeniable statistics.
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!" As for GDP, Obama averaged 2.1 percent growth during his time in office. "And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations", Obama said in April of 2008.
Still, as Trump accurately points out, the recovery under Obama was marked by a slower rate of growth than what followed previous recessions, such as the recovery under President Ronald Reagan in 1983 and 1984. In the end, your answer might depend on your political party affiliation.
