The gross domestic product grew at an annual rate of 3.5 percent, up from a 0.7 percent drop in the second quarter, and “the largest three-month gain we have seen in two years,” Obama said at a small business event Thursday.
“This is obviously welcome news and an affirmation that this recession is abating and the steps we’ve taken have made a difference.”
