The numbers are in and the country is on an economic roll.  The Gross Domestic Product or GDP, is 4.1 for the second quarter of the fiscal year.  CNBC reports that the rate of growth is the fastest since the GDP was 4.9 in 2014.  GDP is the total value of goods and services produced for the year.  Economists were concerned that the president's trade policy could negatively impact growth.

President Trump took to the airwaves from the White House this morning to explain his numbers.  "I am thrilled to announce that the United States economy grew at 4.1 percent.  We're on track to hit the highest annual average growth rate in over thirteen years.  I'll say this strongly, as the trade deals come in one by one, we're going to go a lot higher than these numbers."

The president believes that his continued economic negotiations will fuel further growth and jobs in America.
