Barack Obama should credit himself for nothing unless it involves dividing Americans on racial grounds and encouraging people to apply for welfare benefits. He was cunningly deceptive; a wolf in wolf’s clothing even. Now, 44 has decided to take credit for President Trump’s booming economy. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wasn’t having any of it!
From Washington Times:
Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump.
At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth.
“As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.”
Washington Examiner has Sanders’ response:
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Sunday called out former President Barack Obama for playfully taking credit for strong employment numbers in the U.S. in 2017.
“Can’t make it up: Obama now wants credit for the booming Trump economy. At least we can all agree the economy is better under President Trump,” Sanders wrote on Twitter.
Sanders then joked that she was “old enough to remember” when Trump’s election was predicted to “crash the market.”
“One year later: market up over 30%, two million new jobs & 1,000 new manufacturing jobs created every day just last month,” she added.
Sanders for the win? YUP!
Obama knows he did next to nothing positive for eight full years, now he wants to coast off of Trump’s accomplishments?
Ain’t gonna happen, dude!
