WASHINGTON (AFP) – US President Barack Obama on Tuesday rejected concerns about a second US recession amid a raft of poor data on US economic growth.
“I am not concerned about a double-dip recession,” Obama said at a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, while acknowledging that there was “enormous work to do” to strengthen a US economic recovery.
