VIDEO: Trump ‘Didn’t Even Break A Sweat’ – Obama Takes Credit for Economic Boom

Democrats are constantly bashing President Donald Trump for doing such a poor job in office, and yet Barack Obama has no problem taking full credit for the current thriving economy.

Seems a little odd.

At some point, Democrats are going to have to pick a lane.

Trending: Top Dems Letter DEMANDS Cabinet Members Hide Info From Trump, They AGREED

Obama went to Ohio on Thursday to slam Trump once again, while claiming the president and Republicans didn’t even break a sweat to help economic success.

From Daily Caller:

President Obama pushed back against President Trump, stating that the positive economic swing is actually a result of his term in office and not the current administration, at an Ohio rally on Thursday night.

“We worked hard to turn this economy around when I was president and Rich was there. And the actions that we took during the economic crisis returned the economy to healthy growth, initiated the longest streak of job creation on record, which continues to today,” Obama stated.

Obama added: “So just remember that when you hear these folks bragging about this economic miracle. Just remember when it started. Just remember when the ball got rolling. We spent eight years pushing that boulder up the hill, we finally get to the top, it starts rolling down the hill and then these folks come in and say look at what we’re doing. They’re standing there, didn’t even break a sweat.”

Click on the tweet and start at the 7:35 mark:

Obama constantly pressed Trump in 2016 on how he would make America great again, only to find out Trump has accomplished most of the things he said he would in such a short amount of time.

From Gateway Pundit:

In June of 2016, Obama mocked Donald Trump while speaking at a town hall in Indiana.

Obama slammed Donald Trump for claiming he would use his business acumen to jump start the economy and create jobs.

“He just says, ‘I’m gonna negotiate a better deal.’ Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that?” Obama arrogantly said to the audience of useful idiots. “What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”

In light of tremendous job growth and economic improvement since becoming president, Trump responded to Obama’s 2016 remarks by trolling him harder than possibly anyone ever has:

Trump also sent this tweet:

Reactions:

During a speech at the University of Illinois, Obama refused to refer to Donald Trump as “president.”

He also labeled Benghazi, in which four Americans lost their lives during an attack by Islamic extremists, a “wild conspiracy theory.”

During his speech, Obama referred to himself 102 times – via American Mirror:

All told, the former president referred to himself – I, My, Me – more than 102 times in about 64 minutes, while simultaneously engaging in the type political pot shots he criticized Republicans for.

Obama’s favorite word seemed to be “I,” which he repeated at least 87 times, followed by more than a dozen references to “my” or “me.”

“By the time I left office, household income was near its all-time high, and the uninsured rate had hit an all-time low, and wages were rising, and poverty rates were falling. I mention all this just so when you hear how great the economy is doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started,” Obama told students.

Trump for the win?
