Former President Barack Hussein Obama is still lurking around in the shadows and making nonsensical, self-aggrandizing comments. He recently took it upon himself to take credit for one of President Trump’s signature achievements. Well, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had a little something to say about that.
Check it out, per Washington Times:
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.”
Press Secretary Sanders was happy to set the record straight and give her boss some major kudos, per Washington Examiner:
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Sunday called out former President Barack Obama for playfully taking credit for strong employment numbers in the U.S. in 2017.
“Can’t make it up: Obama now wants credit for the booming Trump economy. At least we can all agree the economy is better under President Trump,” Sanders wrote on Twitter.
Sanders then joked that she was “old enough to remember” when Trump’s election was predicted to “crash the market.”
Former President Obama presided over the slowest economic recovery since WWII and regulated entire industries out of existence. Remember when Mark Cuban predicted the economy would implode if Trump was elected? Unfortunately for all the naysayers, the current economic boon is the healthiest the U.S. markets have been in decades and shows no signs of slowing down.
Here’s the numbers from Breitbart:
The American economy has added more than one million jobs since President Donald Trump took office.
Defying expectations that job creation would slump this year, America has added more than 200,000 jobs in four out of Trump’s six months in office. That brought the total number of jobs created since the start of February to 1.07 million. On average, the economy created 179,000 jobs in each of the first six months of Trump’s presidency.
What do you think of Sarah Sanders setting the record straight?
