Donald Trump Pulls "muscle" Out Of Good Economic Data

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, published on Wednesday a photo montage on the social network Twitter in which his face is seen on the body of a stocky boxer, after the announcement of good economic data in the country.

The image shows Trump's face on a muscular boxer's body, laureate with a champion belt, with the colors white, red and blue, those of the country's flag; and with gloves.

US government He reported Wednesday that the GDP grew at an annual rate of 2.1% between July and September, that is, two tenths more than previously calculated and one tenth above the increase recorded in the previous quarter.


Since the end of the Great Recession, in July 2009, US economic activity has grown steadily and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which estimates this year's increase by 2.4%, has set the outlook for 2020 in 2.1%.

This is approximately the annual average since 2009, when the Great Recession ended. But it is far from the 3% rate that Trump promised to achieve with his "United States First" tax cut, deregulation and policy measures.

The indicators continue to send disparate signals about the health of the US economy, especially because of the strength exhibited by the labor market, with an unemployment rate that remains below 4%.

The commercial war unleashed with China over President Trump's protectionist policy has raised concerns among businessmen, with billionaires import duties imposed on Chinese products that have been answered with similar measures by the Beijing authorities.

Although at the beginning of October both countries reached a partial agreement to reduce tensions in their commercial disputes, which last longer than 15 months, multimillion dollar tariffs are still maintained on imports from both countries.
