The Commerce Department announced on Friday that the United States gross domestic product (GDP) “grew at a solid 4.1 percent pace in the second quarter,” something that President Trump predicted would happen under his administration during the final 2016 presidential debate.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace asked Trump about the national debt, and how the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB) predicted that under Trump’s plan the debt would rise to 105 percent of GDP over the next ten years.

“Well I say they’re wrong because I’m going to create tremendous jobs. And we’re bringing GDP from really one percent, which is what it is now, and if [Clinton] got in, it would be less than zero, but we’re bringing it from one percent up to four percent,” Trump said. “I actually think we can go higher than four percent. I think you can go to fix percent or six percent. And if we do, you don’t have to bother asking your question. Because we have a tremendous machine. We will have created a tremendous economic machine once again.”
