Barack Obama reminds people that Donald Trump is not responsible for the great economy.

Former President Barack Obama told Nevada voters Monday that they should not give President Trump credit for the current state of the economy and said they should “remember who started it.”

Obama told Nevadans that they should discount talk of “economic miracles” that Trump has repeatedly touted, including a 3.7 percent unemployment rate and a strong economy ahead of the midterm elections in two weeks.

“By the time I left office, wages were rising, uninsurance rate was falling, poverty was falling, and that’s what I handed off to the next guy,” Obama said. “So when you hear all this talk about ‘economic miracles’ right now — remember who started it.”

Obama took multiple digs at the president in his speech, calling him “the next guy” and saying that he believes in facts “unlike some.”

“Unlike some, I actually try to state facts. I believe in facts,” Obama said while discussing the GOP tax law. “I believe in a fact-based reality and a fact-based politics. I don’t believe in just making stuff up.”

Of all of the things that Donald Trump does that piss me off, and trust me they are legion, I think taking credit for Obama’s hard work on the economy is at the top of my list. 

Quite literally the ONLY thing that Trump has to brag about is how well the economy is doing and how low unemployment is right now. 

And neither one of those has a goddamn thing to do with his policies. 

All Trump has done is to lower taxes for the richest people in the country, and no economist worth a damn would suggest that they have had any real impact on the economy at all yet, except of course to drive the deficit up to 779 billion, almost twice what the Administration predicted. 

All Trump has done is to ride in on his white horse and take credit all of the hard work done by this country’s first black President. 

And when this economy turns, and it will, he will simply turn around and somehow blame it on the Democrats. 

But I know who destroys the economy, and I know who always comes in behind them and fixes it. 

Which is why I always vote for the Democrat.

    I wish the Democrats would toot their own horn more often, every time little donnie says he is responsible for making the economy great, they need to go out and tell everyone who really saved our country from the depression, which was caused by the republicans.

    NEXT Black Governor >Voter suppression was the central theme of the debate:
    “Stacey Abrams was strong and formidable. She was able to go point for point with Kemp. It is easy to see why this election is a dead heat. Abrams was the best candidate on the stage who was able to defend herself from various levels of smears and also advance a policy agenda that was a good fit for the increasingly purple attitudes of Georgia. The Kemp strategy was to paint Abrams as a radical, but she instead looked and sounded like a governor with a detailed and well thought out agenda.”
    “Kemp went with the old Republican standards of blaming Obama, attacking Obamacare as socialism, and playing up the fear of the immigrant.”

    The collapsing economy on the verge of a Great Depression was too complex for Republican simpletons to comprehend. A fundamental belief of Republicans is do not take my money and “give it away”. Trump seized on that mind set escalating fear of others “taking away” their money, jobs, safety and he was a savior to give it all back to them. Since the election Trump makes up lies spinning a book of fiction the ignorant swallow because Trump convinced them facts are fake news. If a fact of truth serves him he may state it or lie to have it appear more impressive.

    While Trump seems to think Obama’s video highlights how Democrats have become supportive of “open borders” over the last 13 years, what it really does is illustrate the dishonesty of his own messaging on immigration.

    I agree with President Obama 100%!

    Economists have said there is a delay in economic results when administrations change. They said we’d been riding on Obama’s coattails for the 12-24 months into Trump’s administration. They also predicted that Trump will eventually tank the economy. I think we’re starting to see that downturn. The tariffs are especially going to effect the economy but his instability on other issues, treaties and agreements he is withdrawing from and his incendiaryt rhetoric make the markets uneasy and that results in downturns. I wish I had sold off stocks this past summer. I was hoping things would have an upswing but Trump has made things worse. Now it’s his unsecure iPhone that doesn’t matter because he doesn’t pay attention to any of his security briefings and basically doesn’t know anything. Really? That’s suppose to reassure us? That our president is so incompetent and ignorant he has nothing to leak? No wonder the market is tanking.
