Donald Trump Jr. to Obama: ‘Abracadabra!’ My Dad Fixed the Economy You Could Not



Donald Trump Jr. told Breitbart News Saturday he is thrilled that former President Barack Obama is active on the 2018 midterm campaign trail because it shows a clear contrast between Obama’s failed policies and his father, President Donald Trump’s, successful policies.

“Without question, he’s our best salesman,” Trump Jr. said of Obama on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel. “No one with a brain actually believes he did anything good for our economy or for our foreign policy. Everyone saw that anything he did basically put America at risk and made us weaker. Every time he drew a red line, other countries walked all over it. He did it again, and they walked all over it. Guess what? Countries, whether it’s foreign policy-wise or whether it’s business-wise, they realize you have someone now that actually cares about America in there, that’s actually doing it–not someone who’s going to make us look weak where you can walk all over us because that’s the precedent that he set. There’s a new sheriff in town. We’ve changed all that.”

Trump Jr. also mocked Obama’s efforts in a series of recent speeches to take credit for the successful Trump economy.

“The biggest joke I’ve seen in the last two years is Obama claiming credit–trying to claim this economy,” Trump Jr. said, “because his policies of over-taxation, oppressive regulation, guess what? That didn’t do anything. That drove this country into the ground. That led to the worst recovery in the history of probably economics but certainly our country’s history. For him to run around doing this now–there’s a reason why on November 9, 2016, all of those matrices shot up like a rocket. It’s because businesses, employers, people realized you got someone who’s actually going to fight for you, not fight just for special interests, not fight for people in countries that hate our guts, but actually fight for real Americans. Real Americans, their jobs, their companies, their businesses. That’s what happened, and when consumer confidence started going up the day my father won because they knew he wasn’t going to oppress them, everything started following. I want to keep that going; that’s how we get rid of some of the other problems we’re having. That’s how we get rid of unfunded pension liability. That’s how we get rid of some of our deficits, is by producing, having GDP numbers above four percent. Okay, remember when Obama said you need a magic wand to make that happen? Well, abracadabra, Obama. We’re doing it.”

The “abracadabra” and “magic wand” reference Trump Jr. made was in response to Obama infamously questioning in 2016 if Trump had a “magic wand” to fix the economy to fulfill the promises he was making.


Ridicule is a powerful weapon. Love it. Please Obama, remind everybody why they voted for trump.

America first, not constantly knock down and hobble her.


Any so-called President who sides with a hostile foreign nation over his own intelligence agencies has no interest in making America great AGAIN. He’s a snake oil salesmen. His only interests are his own.


You’re delusional…


That was a really bad attempt to distract the conversation. Fact is, Obama not only could not grow GDP he couldn’t bring back any jobs.


Lol, who’s he. Irrelevant, and sleeping the last ten years. Bush trashed the economy on his way out the door, it was in complete melt down. But it began climbing out of it in March of 09 and continued to grow sometimes slower than others but steadily throughout.

What I’d hate to see is where we’d be had Obama handed Trump the same collapsing economy that Bush handed him.

Trumps gasconading is callow.:roll_eyes:


Funny, I seem to remember Obama cleaning up Bush’s mess and handing Donald a good economy. But that may not be true in your reality. I don’t live in that one.


When you’re drugged up on liberalism, your mind is fucked up beyond all reason. FUBAR!


Bush’s numbers were terrible…


Obama is pathetic. Obama may be politically correct and talk a good game, but he is a total fraud. He said Trump would need a magic wand for the economy and jobs he was preaching about creating on the campaign trail. Well abracadabra you self righteous POS!!!


Mr “I’m going to run balanced budgets because they’re so easy”. Pay off the national debt in eight years. :rofl::rofl:

Signs a record spending bill that borrows 1.3 trillion dollars so he can give a raise to entitlement spending and Pentagon. I guess you can brag on the economy if you’re going to throw a crap ton of borrowed money at it.


-> Counted temp and 2nd jobs as “jobs created”
-> What is slope

Nice optics, Obummer.

If you subtract off the 2.9% inflation rate over the last year, Trump’s GDP growth is lackluster. The dropping unemployment rate corresponds with dropping labor force participation rates. Wages are up same as inflation and the community survey is expected to see a drop in median household income when it comes out later this month.

Stock market is doing well, but that is really it. That is fine for my 401k (albeit mostly invested in foreign funds) , but for people struggling, Trump hasn’t really done much.


Going to be funny seeing Jr. in the same seat that Manaforts in now. :rofl:


You want trumps son in jail? Why because you lost the election? Why the hate?


So, Obama didn’t hand Trump a good economy. Do tell… This oughta be good :laughing:


Obama’s oppressive regulations Helped grow the economy? It wasn’t until trump deregulated thousands of oppressive regulations givien to us by Democrats…

Free the American man! Liberty! Freedom! You can’t stop us!


So, you’re saying that we weren’t better off at the end of Obama’s presidency than we were at the beginning? :joy: Dumb ass


If you think 30 hours a week shake shack jobs a great obama is your man. lol
