President Trump slammed CNN’s Chris Cuomo after he got caught using data from Barack Obama’s last year as president in his hit-piece against Trump’s economy.
Cuomo used a “Wealth Gap” chart from the Washington Post that ended in 2016 as a guide to help prove that President Trump’s economy is not “the best ever for black people.”
As the chart is shown on the screen, Cuomo says, “In fact, that fundamental divide is as wide now as it was in the year Dr. King was shot.”
“So much for Trump’s economy being the best ever for black people,” he added.
Tonight, @ChrisCuomo criticized Trump’s economy while using data that stops in 2016.
This is complete incompetence.

President Trump lashed out at Cuomo after seeing that the CNN host used data from the end of Obama’s term in his cheap shot towards the Trump Administration.
“Fredo’s ratings are really bad, more than 50% down. A loser!!” Trump tweeted.

On Friday, Donald Trump Jr. also issued a reaction to Cuomo’s baseless hit job against his father.
We leave you with his tweet:
They will lie, cheat and steal to make sure democrats win. Today’s media aren’t journalists they’re left wing activists! https://t.co/cGHHOLyTP8
