‘Latest con job’: Trump, White House mock Obama’s attempt to steal credit for sizzling economy

Former president Barack Obama admits that the Trump economy is smoking-hot. Want proof? He’s trying to take credit for it — three years after President Trump took office.

Obama — whom the Left constantly hails as a model of decorum — has repeatedly violated the unspoken code of former presidents not speaking out against their successors.

This time, a triggered Obama passive-aggressively tweeted: “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.”

Obama was trying to steal credit for the Trump economic boom and its record-low unemployment rates, especially for black Americans, Latinos, Asian-Americans, and women.

Keep in mind that Obama took office in 2009, when the U.S. economy was cratering into a recession. Therefore, the “Obama economy” had nowhere to go but up. And even then, his “economic recovery” was middling because many of the jobs he created were part-time and paid low wages.

President Trump fired back on Twitter, writing:  “Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration. He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing. NOW, best jobs numbers ever.”

The President then promised that “the best is yet to come!”

The Trump campaign issued a statement saying the economy has gone through the roof because President Trump reversed Obama’s failed economic policies.

Trump national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany — an attorney who graduated from Harvard Law School — said:

“President Trump reversed every single failed Obama-era economic policy, and with it, reversed the floundering Obama/Biden economy. Obama and Biden orchestrated the worst economic recovery in modern history.

By contrast, by deregulating, lowering taxes, and supporting free-market policies, President Trump has created the hottest economy on record, with unemployment hitting generational lows and all-time lows for African Americans, Hispanics, the disabled, veterans and many other hard-working Americans.

Paychecks are growing at the fastest pace in a decade and twice as fast for low- and middle-income Americans.

It’s no wonder Democrats seek to take credit for the Trump economy after eight years of betraying blue-collar workers and inflicting pain upon the middle class as Americans everywhere suffered. But the failed days of Democrat stagnation are over, and the soaring Trump economy is here to stay.”

The stock market is also booming under the Trump presidency. You don’t have to invest in stocks to benefit when the financial markets do well. Why? Because thriving companies hire people for jobs.

Barack Obama got slammed on Twitter, with many users pointing out that despite being the nation’s first black president, he did little to help the African-American community.

Black Trump supporter Christian Lamar tweeted: “Obama, why didn’t Black Income go up during your Presidency? President Trump has raised black income by $5,148 since 2018 after the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act passed. President Trump not only got it done, but got Opportunity Zones and a $10,000 tax cut for K thru 12 students too. What happened [to you]?”

Author Mike Cernovich scoffed: “Lol at trying to steal credit for the Trump economy.”

One man quipped: “How did you manage to delay the start of your amazing recovery until the very moment you left office? Interesting governing technique.”

Conservative commentator Bill Mitchell remarked: “According to a study by Harvard, 94% of the “jobs” you created were part-time with no future and lousy wages. Millions went on food stamps and workforce participation hit record lows.”

Townhall political editor Guy Benson quipped: “Team Trump is gonna win this argument.”

Reminder: In June 2016, Obama claimed that U.S. manufacturing jobs “are just not going to come back” after growth stalled under his policies.

Obama then insisted that the next president would need a “magic wand” to deliver on what he claimed would be an impossible feat.

Apparently, President Trump had a “magic wand.” He delivered a net increase of nearly 500,000 manufacturing jobs on his watch.

Obama probably got triggered because Trump annihilated him in the New Hampshire primary and set a record for an incumbent president at the Iowa Caucuses.

The unprecedented turnouts suggest that the sham impeachment ignited Trump’s fired-up base, who showed up to vote in the primaries even though Trump is running uncontested.

In other words, the impeachment stunt is backfiring spectacularly on Democrats. And President Trump is on-course to cruise to a 2020 landslide, according to numerous election-prediction models.
