WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump is calling the pace of the nation's economic growth "a catastrophe" and placing the blame on the Obama administration.
Trump, speaking in Nevada Friday, noted that the nation's GDP rose just 1.1 percent in the second quarter after being revised down from 1.2 percent.
"When it was 1.2, they thought it was a catastrophe," Trump says. "Now they brought it down. Which is unheard-of numbers."
He is unfavorably comparing the U.S. economy to China's and says the nation has "some very, very serious problems and it's going to get worse with this group of people" in charge.
