(CNSNews.com) -- On Friday, British journalist and television presenter Piers Morgan tweeted about the U.S. economy’s 4.1 percent GDP growth surge, pointing out that despite the good news, “today’s undeniably excellent growth numbers will be deemed a fiasco by [President Trump’s] critics.”

“There's no middle ground re Trump any more, no desire to be fair,” Morgan stated. “As with Brexit in UK, only extreme partisan positions are acceptable. Any attempt at impartiality must be abused/crushed.”

In a separate tweet released the same day, Morgan called the U.S. economic report a “BIG win for [Donald Trump],” while predicting that “his critics will find a way to explain a) why it’s actually a disaster, or b) why it’s all down to Obama.”

Piers Morgan’s comments come after President Trump expressed his hope for continued GDP annual growth.

In a press conference held on the lawn of the White House this morning, the president stated that “during each of the two previous administrations, we averaged just over 1.8 percent GDP growth. By contrast we are now on track to hit an average GDP annual growth of over 3 percent and it could be substantially over 3 percent.”
