GDP was trending downward in Obama's last year in office.
Every quarter under Trump is bigger than the same quarter under Obama. The economy really does respond to decreases in regulation and lower tax rates.
Is that how it works, get shot down on one set of figures and just slide into another?
I notice you say "trending downwards" but the chart refers to percent change rather than absolute GDP, and doesn't go negative. Let's look at the trend in growth rates over ten years also. Looks kind of similar. You seem to be mistaking fluctuations for a long term trend. I observe that it's been hovering around 2% since late 2009. Hard to see a radical change there.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
