Donald Trump is president and the economy is booming! Just in November alone, over 200,000 jobs were created and the unemployment rate held at 4.1 percent! This is better than experts expected.
Now what is hilarious about all this, is that former President Barack Obama is emerging out of his hole to attempt to take credit for the economic surge; and act that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called “laughable.”
During a speech at the North American Climate Summit in Chicago on Tuesday, Obama said “we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently” after he focused on clean energy and carbon pollution regulations.
“We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far,” Obama said. “A streak that still continues, by the way. ‘Thanks, Obama.’”
“I think it’s laughable that President Obama thinks he has anything to do with the success of where the economy is right now,” Sanders continued, “This is all a direct result not just of President Trump’s swearing-in, but from the minute he was elected, consumer confidence got stronger, businesses wanted to participate in our economy again, because they have confidence in this president.”
She pointed out that the U.S. gross domestic product growth rate has steadily gone up since Trump took office.
Jesse Watters noted that 228,000 jobs were added in November and unemployment is at a 17-year low.
She added that Trump has also gotten rid of regulations, which has allowed for more job creation and economic growth.
“There’s a reason that it continues to go up, and it started when President Trump was elected and when he got into office,” Sanders concluded, “It had nothing to do with President Obama, and I think everybody knows it, including President Obama. And I think it’s pretty laughable that he’s trying to take credit for it.”
