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.”
He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.”
No, ZIRP had nothing to do with it.
No, Q1-3 had nothing to do with it.
No, Operation spin 1/2 had nothing to do with it.
No, 9 trillion in debt wasn’t a factor.
And of course the recession ended in June 2009 before you found the bathroom in the WH.
Of of course it’s as always all about you Mr. ex el presidente Bamboozala.
p.s. The country thanks you for the 9 trillion in debt you added, th 4 trillion on the balance sheet at the Federal reserve, th millions you added to the population for non enforcing the border, the tens of thousands of refugees you added, pat yourself on the back with a baseball bat.
