    It still amazes me how so many still don't understand Trump.

    It's a goal and a goal Obama gave up on by deciding 2 percent growth was the new Norm.
    so based in the GREAT Trump, 2% plus some change seems to be the maximum possible..

    Apparently, Obama didn't give up on anything, he just was realistic, knowledgeable and responsible, and didn't lie to his folks, like your hero does day in and day out.

    No, he didn't. The Republicans wouldn't allow him to do anything to grow the economy.

    Obama was the one imposing massive amounts of regulations on business that harmed their ability to expand and create jobs.

    If you can't make money without trashing the environment and/or abusing your workers then you shouldn't be in business. None of the regulations Trump has rescinded have resulted in any improvement in the economy as evidenced by 2.2% GDP growth.

    Obama's congress saved the US economy. Trump and his Congress has done no better than Obama's Q4 2016

    Trump has no magic.

    Your Mr. Trump has been very, VERY busy removing all those regulations and we are NOT getting faster economic growth. Why not?

    sure.. 90 months of consecutive job growth in April 2019... with close to 18 million less jobless in that time frame..

    what a failure.
