SOTU lies re economy

Joaniepoanie

Trump lied bigly about the economy at the SOTU:

  • Growth at 2.3 is slower than 5 past presidents
  • Jobs per month lower—-Obama 227,000, Trump 191,000
  • Wages rising slowly but when adjusted for inflation they’ve risen more slowly under Trump
  • We are in the continuation of an 11 year recovery started by Obama

About those 12,000 new factories, over 80% of them employ 5 people or less.

If trump's mouth is moving, he is lying.

His supporters believe every word that comes out of his mouth. Only Trump and his supporters tell the truth. Everyone else lies.

What's funny is that the numbers are right there for them to see. Hard numbers that don't lie The economy is good, very good, but not great and certainly no better than what he inherited from Obama.

Ten years of steady recovery . A downturn is destined to come sooner or later , probably just in time to blame it on the new Democratic President.

And those weren't the only lies our president told @ his (un)reality show.
