Ex-President Obama is apparently taking credit for our currently booming economy, and Donald Trump does not like it!
The Trump campaign recently fired back at Obama after he tried to take credit for the current growing economy. In a statement to the press, a top campaign official said the economy is only recovering because of actions President Trump took to undo his predecessor’s failed economic policies.
“President Trump reversed every single failed Obama-era economic policy, and with it, reversed the floundering Obama/Biden economy,” Kayleigh McEnany, Trump campaign national press secretary, told Fox News.
McEnany’s comments came soon after former President Obama took to Twitter noting the anniversary of his signing the 2009 Economic Stimulus Package, where he said, “Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.”
However, the Trump campaign countered all of that by adding that by deregulating, lowering taxes and supporting free market policies, President Trump has created the hottest economy on record. This is a fact Vice President Mike Pence has continued to stress on the campaign trail.
“I hope you have figured out already American manufacturing has never had a greater champion in the Oval Office than President Donald Trump,” he stated. “And we’re going to keep working every day, not just earn your confidence, but to give you confidence to invest, to give you the confidence to know that this is a president that believes in growth.”
The Trump campaign added that despite the former president’s tweets to the contrary, Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden actually orchestrated the worst economic recovery in modern history.
