The one positive Donald Trump can point to from his mass chaos presidency is a strong economy, which began under President Obama and continues today, although without the same rate of growth as before.
However, Trump inherited a good economy and will never get the praise he wants for it, which is the praise that Obama received. On Saturday, Trump tweeted that he had saved the country from a failing economy. That’s just not true.
When Obama was elected, the U.S. economy was in one of the worst collapses since the Great Depression. Although the country was hemorrhaging jobs, Obama revived the economy and left office with a 4.7 percent unemployment rate.
There was a time that Trump was able to admit to the truth. In an interview with Inside Edition, the man who became the face of the new, far-right GOP said that the economy, historically, does better under Democrats.
These days, he needs something to prop himself up since his scandal-ridden presidency has in the news cycle on a daily basis, and not in a good way. The only way to make that point, however, is to gaslight the American public. The economy was not failing and was not in freefall when he took office. In fact, the country had undergone rapid growth and had experienced the longest period of job growth in history.
Twitter was not having any of Trump’s lies. Read some of their comments below:
