Trump tweeted that the nation's gross domestic product growth was higher than the unemployment rate for the first time in more than a century.

Gasparino was writing in response to a tweet from Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.

Eight weeks from today, the nation will go and vote, rendering the verdict on the first two years of Donald Trump's presidency and their relative judgments of the two parties as well.

Gasparino responded with a mix of snark and anger.

In a rare breaking of ranks, Fox Business host, Charles Gasparino, called out President Donald Trump on Tuesday, writing on Twitter, "when was the last time [Donald Trump] said something that wasn't filled with utter bull s**t?"

"The history of thought about how errors happen is not something I can engage in, because from the initial fact to what the president said, I don't know the whole chain of command", Hassett said.

The president claimed the GDP rate was the highest in 100 years.

"There's no question that there's a mixture of credit involved". "I like high GDP growth and low unemployment".

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) took notice of Obama's pot-calling-the-kettle-black speech and blasted the former president in a Twitter thread for his blatant contribution to the brokenness of American politics and our current state of discord. "When President Obama left, after eight years in office, he had only created 195 000 jobs for African-Americans".

The overall USA economy grew at a 4.2% annual rate in the second quarter.

In the days since Mr. Obama spoke out on Friday, Mr. Trump has kept up the argument. "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.

It also wasn't clear why Trump focused on those numbers.

Asked about the veracity of the statement later that day at a White House press briefing, Hassett said: "So I can tell you what is true".
