There is no doubt that the United States economy has grown since Donald J. Trump became president. How does the growth compare with the previous administration?
This chart holds plots of real gross domestic product (GDP) added over two periods of 12 quarters each. One line starts with the first quarter of 2017, the first quarter of the Trump administration. It ends with the fourth quarter of 2019.
The other line starts with the first quarter of 2014, which covers the last 12 quarters of the previous president’s administration.
Question. Which line belongs to each president’s administration?
No matter which administration’s line is blue and which is grey, I think the conclusion we can make is that one president did a good job of maintaining the positive trend of his predecessor, and that’s a great accomplishment.Click here.
