(Tea Party PAC) – President Trump has a lot of endearing qualities about him, but one of the ones people really seem to love about the guy is how he refuses to stand idily by and allow folks to trash talk him or to take credit for the accomplishments he worked hard to achieve, which is why so many on the left absolutely despise him with every fiber of their being.
Trump put this quality on display recently when former President Barack Obama attempted to take credit for the smoking hot economy that Trump has ushered in over the last four years, which is the result of tax breaks and the rolling back of ridiculous regulations and restrictions that were destroying small businesses across the country.
Yes, Obama saw that something was going good in our nation and decided to try and take the credit for something he didn’t do. Typical progressive, right?
Here are the details from BizPacReview:
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.”

Yes, that’s right. The former president who completely shredded the Constitution and tried to transform America into a socialist nightmare through Obamacare and other junk policies that annihilated the economy is trying to take credit for record-low unemployment rates for black Americans, Latinos, Asian-Americans, and women.
The problem, of course, is that he did nothing of the sort.
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!”
….ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

The Trump campaign also struck back agains the attempted theft of the glory for a rising economy by Obama by releasing a statement saying that Trump’s economy took off because he reversed many of the former administration’s awful policies:
“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.”
Progressives are always looking for a way to take from those that accomplish something by the sweat of their brow and give it to those who haven’t earned it, and apparently, Obama is no better, participating in the exact same kind of behavior on a personal level.
President Trump has done a stellar job and this is why he deserves another four years. Here’s to hoping the 2020 election swings in his favor and we get even more winning!
