Trump wants Obama to know he has a 'magic wand'

Fox Business' daytime anchor Neil Cavuto has called out Trump on a number of occasions when the president has bashed the "fake news" and the "swamp".

Following Friday's blockbuster August jobs report, and with nail-biting midterm elections less than 60 days away, the 44th and 45th presidents crossed swords, with Trump continuing to counterpunch through the weekend and into Monday morning.

"I guess I have a magic wand", Trump said, pointing to 4.2 percent GDP growth in the last quarter.

The White House did not immediately respond to request for comment on Monday.

"I have to kind of remind them, actually, those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016".

HORSLEY: Well, that's certainly the case that White House economist Kevin Hassett was trying to make yesterday. Unfortunately for the former president and thanks to facts, we do know when the recovery began - and it happened despite him, not because of him.

ICC judges and prosecutors would be barred from entering the United States and their funds in the USA would be sanctioned. Bolton went on to proclaim that the USA will not cooperate with the ICC, even financially.

And she said she would have to keep reporters "posted" on whether Trump might consider suing Bob Woodward, whose devastating insider account of his White House is published Tuesday and argues that the president is detached from reality and has prompted top aides to try to protect America from the damage he could wreak.

"There's no question that there's a mixture of credit involved. And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations", Obama said in April of 2008. "But what is true is that it's the highest in 10 years, and at some point somebody probably conveyed it to him, adding a zero to that, and they shouldn't have done that". Unemployment was between 3.8% and 4% during the quarter, and it came in at 3.9% in August. In the second quarter of this year, it exceeded 4 percent and manufacturing jobs are making a comeback.

The International Monetary Fund now predicts 2.9% growth this year and next, marking the longest period of expansion in USA history. Public appearances at the briefings are typically used to praise Trump.

Yet, in another unusual twist, Mr Trump's popularity has been consistently and historically low despite the relatively good economic times. "President Obama vs. President Trump, the leader vs. the tweeter, yes we can vs. way too tan". If you sketch a graph of a lot of economic indicators, what you see is a pretty straight line stretching back into the Obama years.

He also noted that the fruits of the economic recovery have not been shared evenly.
