It's definitely going to be impacted negatively by the hurricanes this quarter relative to what it would have been.

You don't get it.

This is the Obama plans finally kicking in and letting the economy take off...it was the worst recession, thus it took time before things started really heating up.

Trump deserves zero credit for this.

Why do we have to have silly debates like this?

Trump was obviously talking about 3% or better being a target for "annual" GDP growth because that number has been really tough to achieve lately even though it used to be more of an average in the past. Trying to get back to 3% annual growth or better has been discussed endlessly in the non political financial press. There has always been volatility in the quarterly numbers. There will be again, especially due to all the hurricanes that will start depressing the numbers and then maybe helping later when people start rebuiding.

The quarterly report was above 3%. So Trump was happy. He is suggesting that what he's doing is working towards achieving that goal 3% or more. You can agree with that or not, but let's not be like the press.

If Trump cured lung cancer the mainstream media would call him a misogynist for not curing breast cancer first. They are idiots.
