When former president Barack Obama was leading the country, Donald Trump had no issue with criticizing and insulting the then-POTUS, even though Obama repeatedly delivered on his promises and accomplished amazing feats during his presidency, leaving a legacy which has unfortunately been tarnished by the current imposter in the White House.
Trump has apparently “forgotten” all the horrible things he’s said about Obama in the past, because he thinks nothing of taking credit for the improved circumstances that were handed to him at the beginning of his term. Trump spent years trashing Obama’s economy in particular, and now he’s actually raving about how great it is – but refusing to give Obama the credit that he deserves (no surprise there). Instead, Trump is pretending that HE’S the reason the economy is soaring.
Trump hasn’t passed any notable legislation that would assist the middle class in the ten months of his disastrous presidency. Instead, he has opted to play golf and tweet his “working” hours away. But now, he thinks America should thank him for the current booming economy – and completely fails to acknowledge that this is all because Obama actually did his job. Earlier this morning, Trump bragged about low employment, new jobs, and the stock market in this gross, entitled, self-congratulatory tweet:
“Unemployment is down to 4.1%, lowest in 17 years. 1.5 million new jobs created since I took office. Highest stock Market ever, up $5.4 trill”
Trump isn’t fooling anyone. We all know that he hasn’t done a damn thing for America yet, and that America’s current economy is all thanks to his predecessor. This economic growth was already a pattern far before Trump arrived at the White House, and Trump hasn’t done anything to expand on it yet. Instead, Trump has opted to repeatedly steal the spotlight from a true hero, and take credit for things he had no part in.
