WATCH: Larry Kudlow caught faking economic data to make Trump’s economy look stable
Trade and economic adviser to President Donald Trump Larry Kudlow stepped into the press conference Wednesday to try and invent economic numbers that made his presidency look better than it actually is.
For weeks, Kudlow has claimed a "V-shaped" recovery was happening, but with 30 million Americans still out of work and evictions still moving forward despite the holds Trump claimed he placed on it, the economy is only looking good for wealthy people.
Kudlow trotted out a chart showing the people in poverty under former President Barack Obama and how it has changed under Trump. The problem, however, is that the chart only showed what life was like before Trump's failed response to COVID-19 destroyed the country.
Dr. Fauci raises alarm over long-term side effects of COVID-19
It’s the 11th hour on COVID-19 help for Americans — but Republicans are leaving Washington to campaign
Americans are desperate for help to stay in their homes and pay their bills as the coronavirus pandemic has kept 30 million Americans from being able to get back to work.
Despite Congress passing a bill to help in May, the bill was never taken up by the Senate and it appears they are about to leave Washington without any progress, CNN.com reported Wednesday.
Last week, Republicans scheduled a vote on a "skinny" stimulus that wouldn't do much to help Americans desperate for unemployment funds and rent and mortgage assistance. The bill didn't pass and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) tried to blame Democrats for not passing the near-useless package. Republicans in the Senate are now back at work trying to find a solution.
