Obama keeps taking credit for an accomplishment he had nothing to do with.
So what else is new, right?
Remember when Obama accused Trump of working against “economic opportunity for workers and ordinary people?”
Well, this statement turned out to be patently false, so now Barack is taking another stance:
HE made the economic upswing happen.
Obama said during a speech in Nevada this week that “[Republicans] run things into the ground and we have to come and clean things up.”
“By the time I left office wages were rising … poverty was falling and that’s what I handed off to the next guy.
So when you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now. Remember who started it. Remember who started it! C’mon!”
This guy’s arrogance truly knows no bounds.
And he’s also LYING.
From The Daily Caller:
“National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow fired back at former President Barack Obama’s claim of credit for the robust state of the U.S. economy, in a Tuesday morning appearance on Fox and Friends.
‘I don’t think he is right with all respect to former President Obama,’ Kudlow said, adding…
…’under his stewardship the so-called recovery was, I don’t know, 2 percent average per year…
…which is really the worst since the, I believe since the depression … already, we have beaten our critics, including Obama’s staff people.‘
The Trump economy is nearing 4% growth, by the way, a figure never even approached by the Obama administration.
Kudlow explains exactly what led to the economic turnaround, and left no doubt that the upswing is a direct result of President Trump’s policies.
“President Trump has cut tax rates on small businesses and corporations and individuals — and he wants to do some more.
That’s a huge difference from President Obama.“
Gee, you think?!
The Democrats keep pointing to the economy as if it cements Obama’s legacy, but only because they know they have nothing to build their failing campaigns on.
Americans understand this, and are abandoning the Left in droves because they don’t want the Dems to retake Congress and undo all of the progress Republicans have made.
Make sure you head to the polls in November to ensure America keeps WINNING!
