Just hours after a stunning economic report showed a staggering 4.1% growth in GDP, President Trump spoke with Sean Hannity to discuss the robust American recovery; saying “it’s going to get even better” in the coming months as the trade deficit continues to tumble.
The Commander-in-Chief touted the booming economy on ‘The Sean Hannity Show’ Friday; adding the mainstream media is largely ignoring new data that shows a record-setting $52 billion decrease in America’s trade deficit.
“It’s going to get better, it’s totally sustainable, I look forward to next quarter”
“One of the more underreported stories is we now have a trade deficit that dropped by more than $50 billion,” said Hannity.
“You’re right Sean, that’s so important, a $52 billion drop in trade deficits, that hasn’t happened for decades… It’s going to get better, it’s totally sustainable, I look forward to next quarter,” said the President.
“We have countries out there who charge us a 100% tariff or tax and we charge them nothing for the same product coming into our country… Yet when I say we’re going to tax them everyone goes crazy and says it’s not free trade,” he added.
“They can do it, but we can’t? Those days are over […] If we can straighten out trade we can pick up a lot of points on GDP,” said the Commander-in-Chief.
