If you hadn’t noticed, the U.S. economy is in a fantastic position.
Unemployment has fallen steadily during President Donald Trump’s first term, and the stock market has often hit all-time highs.
However, Democrats are quick to give most of the credit to Trump’s predecessor.
And even Barack Obama himself believes he was instrumental in saving America from a recession and laying the groundwork for the current environment.
Liberals are quick to agree, of course.
But Trump doesn’t believe a word of it.
In fact, he got pretty annoyed at Obama’s latest statement, where Barack touted his controversial Recovery act:
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the recovery act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.
Yup, Obama is definitely tooting his own horn here. But the Trump campaign wasn’t about to let this slide.
First, national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump actually reversed the failed Obama-era economic policy:
Obama and Biden orchestrated the worst economic recovery in modern history.
Then Trump jumped in … he clearly wasn’t happy with Obama once again taking credit for the economy.
So, after the previous President said he helped create the economic boom, Trump lowered a “boom” of his own:
Did you hear the latest con job?
President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration.
He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing. NOW, best jobs numbers ever.
Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN.
If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now.
THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!
How’s THAT for a reply?!
Things have only continued to improve during the Trump administration. The economy is the strongest it has been in decades, according to most numbers.
Obama thinks he had a lot to do with it. Well, that’s up for dispute—and there’s no doubt in my mind Trump has done amazing things for America!
What do you think? Who do you think is most responsible for the great economy?
