Barack Obama Crawls Out From Under His Rock, Barack Obama Slams President Trump, Tries to Take Credit For Thriving Economy

Kirsters Baish| Former President Barack Obama came out of hiding today to slam President Donald Trump, referring to him by name during a speech at the University of Illinois. Then, Obama took credit for the country’s thriving economy. The ironic part that in just a year and a half into his first term, Donald Trump has done more for our country’s economy than Obama did during two full terms. In fact, Obama was the only United States President in our country’s history to never see even one year with a 3.0% GDP growth.

This was one of the first times that Obama called out Trump by name.

“It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause. He is just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years,” Obama stated during the speech.

Take a look at the video below:

Then, the former President began complaining that he didn’t receive credit for the economy’s success in the past year and a half.

He claimed, “When you hear about how great the economy is doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started.”

Let’s talk about the real numbers for a moment. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics released their August jobs report this Friday. As of today, unemployment is down to a minimal 3.9%. There are more people within the United States today that are employed than have ever been in our country at any given time in history. Since the year 2000, over 20% of all job increases in the United States have taken place during the last year and a half… during the time that Trump has been President.

The Gateway Pundit reports, “The US GDP for the second quarter accelerated to a whopping 4.1% under the leadership of President Donald Trump. This is another BIG Trump win. This doubles the first quarter growth of 2.2% Atlanta Fed projects a 3rd Quarter GDP of 4.6%!”

I’d like Obama to name one thing that he did to contribute to the success that our economy has been seeing over the last year and a half. America’s economy is booming thanks to Trump. Obama had nothing to do with it.
