Despite GDP Jump, Boss Bumps Trump’s Q3 Goal

(2018-07-30) — Although he exceeded expectations in the second quarter by delivering a 4.1 percent GDP growth rate, President Donald Trump’s performance review didn’t go as well as he had hoped, and the boss set new “unreasonable goals” for the third quarter of 2018.

A colleague said Trump had hoped his work in Q2 would earn him a pay raise and a corner office, neither of which happened.

“The boss has no idea what it takes to make 4.1 happen,” said a Trump co-worker. “He’s out there busting his tail every day — early, late, weekends — and the boss strolls in for the quarterly performance review and and talks like it was all dumb luck.”

Instead of praise and a bonus, the colleague said, Trump’s boss nitpicked what he called “opportunities for improvement,” excused away the good numbers, then told him he’d better “shoot for the moon in Q3, or watch his back.”

In a final insult, the supervisor told Trump if it were up to him, he’d get a pay hike, but “the money’s just not in the budget this year, what with the economy and all.”
