GDP for the 2nd Q was . . . . .

GDP  for the 2nd Q was 2.6%.  Understand that GDP is the measure of how many dollars change hands  (income and expenses) in a single month compared to the previous month.  The 2nd quarter did 2.6% more business than the first quarter. 

Now,  before we Trumpsters get too excited,  understand that Obama had many quarters of 2.6%,  and many were 2nd quarter expansions.  Still,  Barack's GDP average for each of his eight years was 1.8%,  near recessionary levels.  

This 2nd quarter report,  as it stands alone,  is not an indication that Trump's first six months has changed the direction of this nation,  financially speaking.
