He said, “We have created the greatest economy in the history of our country.”
Leslie Stahl told him, “You know that’s not true.”
The president said, “Almost every number was the best.”
“We had the best economy ever,” he said. “The priority now is to get back to normal, get back to where we were, and make the economy angry with jobs and everyone be happy. This is where we are heading, and this is what we are heading for.”
Asked who he believed was the nation’s biggest opponent, he referred to China.
He said, “They are competitors.” “They are enemies in many ways, but they are an adversary. I think what happened was a disgrace, and it should never have happened … This plague should never have been allowed to leave China and go around the world. 188 countries. It should not have happened. Start “.
The president reportedly withdrew from the interview, to be broadcast by CBS on Sunday along with interviews with his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden.
Trump has threatened to release his recordings of his interview with Mrs. Stahl, whom he accused of leading a “fierce attempt” to “direct” in their recent White House interview.

I amN previews from his interview With CBS Evening News Broadcaster and managing editor Nora O’Donnell in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden has said that if elected, he intends to form a bipartisan committee to study US courts.
He has faced criticism from the right for his refusal to directly address “mobilization in court” – extending the number of seats in the US Supreme Court to counterbalance the partisan divide – as the Republican-controlled Senate moves quickly to confirm the president’s third candidate. The Supreme Court weeks before Election Day.
“Because it’s out of control – the way it’s handled and it’s not about packing in court,” Biden said. “There are a number of other things that our constitutional scholars discussed and looked for recommendations that this committee might make.”
“There are a number of alternatives … beyond just packing,” he said.
“The last thing we need to do is turn the Supreme Court into a mere political football, and whoever gets the most votes gets what they want,” he said. “Presidents come and go. Supreme Court justices will stay for generations.”
While the economy performed strongly in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the president did not oversee the largest US economy ever in his tenure.
Since taking office, the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level in decades, but the GDP – the strongest measure of the overall strength of the economy – has been comparable to the gains made under his predecessor, Barack Obama. Inflation-adjusted GDP per capita has increased by less than 2 percent under Trump, putting his tenure in office with his predecessors on average.
He had pledged to raise it to 4 percent.
When he took office in January 2017, there were 145 million American workers. By the end of 2019, that number had increased to 152 million, an increase of 6.3 million new jobs.
Using a similar period in Obama’s second term (January 2013 to December 2015), the number of jobs has also increased by about 7 million. The Independent mentioned.
The rate of 2.1 million new jobs per year was less than his 2016 campaign pledge to create 25 million new jobs over a decade.
The economic fallout of the public health crisis, management downsizing and insufficient relief for workers eliminated these numbers, jumping to the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression of the deadly April.
