Trump to Hannity: I can get GDP growth up to 8-9%

On Friday, President Donald Trump, who answered no questions from the press at an earlier speech on the economy at the White House, made a surprise appearance on Sean Hannity‘s radio show to tout the economy and declare that with the help of trade deficit cuts, the GDP may soon see 8 or 9 percent growth.

Trump started out by saying that the economy was “far ahead of what anybody thought” except of course himself, who has known all along.

Then, he said this about how much greater the American economy was bound to get as long as trade deficits are cut in half.
