    Economic growth in the US has been declining since 2010, all the way down to a pitiful 1.6% in 2016.

    Looks like Trump is turning that around.

    It was shown time over time in another GDP thread that US GDP numbers has not one damn thing to do with Trump.

    Trump supporters are so desperate to nail any good news to Trump.

    There are no cited indication that anything Trump has done to date had anything to do with US GDP numbers.

    Trump has as much to do with US's GDP numbers as he does with Sweden's.

    and

    [Sweden] Year-on-year, the GDP expanded 4 percent, also beating market consensus of 2.8 percent. It was the highest annual growth rate since the last quarter of 2015.
    It looks to me like US GDP growth is 2.6% to Sweden's 4% - but I could be wrong.

    From the links in the above posts re Sweden

    Year-on-year, the GDP advanced 4 percent, also beating market consensus of 2.8 percent and following an upwardly revised 2.3 percent growth. It was the strongest pace of expansion since the last quarter of 2015.

    The US economy advanced an annualized 2.6 percent on quarter in the second quarter of 2017, following a downwardly revised 1.2 percent expansion in the previous period, matching market expectations, an advance estimate showed. The improvement was boosted by strong consumer spending and a rebound in government consumption while exports slowed and housing investment shrank.


    ^^^^those damn facts keep getting in the way of the Trumpster talking points^^^^
    Now wait for it, the next comments will be its fake news because they don't like what the report says.

    please review the tables in the 2 links I provided on US and Sweden GDP.

    add the last 4 quarters of GDP growth rates up for Sweden and the US. Sweden 3.9%, US 8.4%.

    understand.
