FALSE! I most certainly HAVE proven that the BEA fixes their numbers to favor Obama, and diminish Trump. I've BEEN doing it for years, by posting the BEA GDP bar graphs which show all the changes they made favoring Obama and diminishing Trump.Bullshit. And you've yet to prove otherwise. And Obama is not in office any longer.BEA is OBVIOUSLY biased in favor of Obama, as they consistently fix numbers to favor him.The BEA was founded by a conservative(Nixon), they are not partial to Obama.FALSE! Before BEA changed their numbers, to keep Obama from being shown as the economic failure that he was, the 2016 GDPs sunk, quarter after quarter. I've been posting those charts for years now.Trump inherited a growing economy. He did nothing to grow it. That's a fact and no protection has any credible information that disputes it.
The truth is exactly the OPPOSITE of what you're saying. Obama's 2016 GDPs were sinking and dreadfully low. Trump took the sinking economy and grew it into the impressive one it is today.
Even the current Obama-friendly BEA doesn't hide entirely Obama's lousy record, in his last chance years (2015-2016) and the Trump recovery and impressive GDPs in 2017/2018. Note that the 3.5 the BEA records for Trump was actually 4.2%, before they cooked the numbers.
U.S. second-quarter GDP growth unrevised at 4.2 percent
GDP Expanded at 4.2% Rate in Second Quarter
GDP: How Donald Trump's administration is spinning economic numbers
State of the Union 2020: Trump economic claims fact-check
No need to favor him.
Those are the kind of deviations that have a specific purpose to them, not occur naturally.
