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.

"The GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!"

Wolfers had tweeted a response to Trump's claim soon after he made it.

Most recently, in the first quarter of 2006, the gross domestic product grew at a rate of 5.4 percent, while the unemployment rate was 4.7 percent in January, 4.8 percent in February and 4.7 percent in March.

Despite Trump's incorrect tweet, both figures are good for Trump, with the GDP growth rate the highest in nearly four years and the unemployment rate the lowest it has been in nearly 18 years.

Rapper Mac Miller Dies Of Apparent Overdose, Report Says
Ariana Grande has disabled comments on her Instagram account in the wake of her ex, Mac Miller's, death from an apparent overdose. In 2011, Miller wrote a song about becoming fabulously wealthy and, seeking a metaphor, entitled the song "Donald Trump".

With his most pointed criticism since leaving office 20 months ago, former President Barack Obama broke his silence on USA politics in recent days, first on Friday at a college in IL to criticize "the politics of division and resentment and paranoia" of President Donald Trump and supporters in the Republican Party, then on Saturday at a rally in Anaheim while campaigning for seven Democratic congressional candidates. "Like, from the initial fact to what the president said, I don't know the whole chain of command", Hassett said.

The first two numbers are correct, although they measure completely different things, and in different ways. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this!

"Some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back", Obama said, during a town hall in June 2016 criticizing Trump's campaign. "And usually the answer is, he doesn't have an answer", Obama continued.

When Hassett on Monday was asked to expand on Trump's tweet and his apparent error, he said to reporters, "I'm not the chairman of the Council of Twitter Advisers". "It's the highest in 10 years".

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., sent a series of tweets outlining times he felt Obama was guilty of using divisive language, including his infamous 2008 line where he accused "cynical" voters of clinging to "guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them". Recessions bookended the start and end of Mr George W. Bush's presidency and marked the end of Mr George H.W. Bush's. The bulk of that decade of growth was under Obama's presidency, and can fairly be credited to him. Several economists and journalists were quick to make that point on Twitter.
