President Trump claims that he has the best economy ever. Just another one of Trump’s lies. Trump has the sixth best economy, based on GDP growth while in office:
Kennedy, 5.5 (the best); Johnson, 5.2; Clinton, 3.7; Carter, 3.4; Reagan, 3.4; Ford, 3.1; Trump, 2.9; Nixon, 3.4; Eisenhower, 2.4; Obama: 2.1; Bush 41, 2.0; Bush 43, 1.7.
Obama’s 2.1 was due to getting us out of the 2008 recession. Trump did nothing more than hitch on to Obama’s ride out of recession.
