President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Christmas to boast about the economy.


"2019 HOLIDAY RETAIL SALES WERE UP 3.4% FROM LAST YEAR, THE BIGGEST NUMBER IN U.S. HISTORY. CONGRATULATIONS AMERICA!" Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

But according to conservative columnist David Frum, the president is not being honest.
