One staple of President Trump’s self-congratulatory tweets is his celebration of the strength of the economy. There are others: He nominated Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court; he accomplished more than any other president (which is not true). Time and again, Trump points to the Dow Jones industrial average or to record-low unemployment numbers as proof he is doing a good job as chief executive.
Americans agree the economy is doing well. They do not agree this should be credited to Trump. CONT.
