US economy grew at robust 4.2 percent rate in Q2
The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 4.2 percent in the second quarter. This is the best performance in nearly four years.
The performance of the gross domestic product, the country’s total output of goods and services, was unchanged from an estimate the Commerce Department made last month, the government reported Thursday.
The strong GDP performance has been cited by Trump as proof that his economic program is working.
“We’re doing much better than anybody thought possible,” Trump said at a Wednesday news conference.
