Obama Gets Brutal Smackdown By Americans After Taking Credit For Trump Economy

Barack Obama thought it would be a good idea to take credit for the booming economy on President’s Day. That’s right, almost four years after he left the Oval Office, Barack is now claiming the best economy Americans have seen in 50 years is due to his signing the “Recovery Act” in 2009. Well, that’s when Americans utterly destroyed poor Barry in ways he won’t soon forget. You’ll love this.

Former President Barack Obama on Monday suggested he was responsible for the booming economy under President Donald Trump.

“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 wrote on Twitter, sharing a picture of his $787 billion stimulus spending package.

Barack Obama’s economy was made up of fake jobs the government created that only lasted 12-18 months. 

The stimulus package, also called the “Recovery Act” of 2009, that Barack is referring to in his tweet was a desperate attempt to stem the tide of a total economic collapse. It did not create real jobs. For example, the former president would speak about “shovel ready jobs” which would be temporary construction jobs the government created and then paid for out of the stimulus package.

Those jobs ended within 12-18 months. It was never meant to fix the economy. That’s why economic growth was horrible during his presidency.

“Although Obama’s nearly trillion-dollar stimulus may have helped the economy recover from a major recession, economic growth had slumped to 1.6 percent by the time he left office,” Breitbart reports.

“President Donald Trump’s tax cuts and regulatory cuts proved to be rocket fuel for the American economy now enjoying record high stock markets gains, wage gains, historic unemployment rates, and an expansion that is now the longest on record,” they added.

Well, poor Barry made a huge miscalculation when he decided to take credit for the booming economy under President Trump, who brilliantly cut taxes while making new trade deals the Democrats claimed were not possible.

Americans were livid. They made it crystal clear he had nothing to do with the booming economy we now enjoy. 

“You had absolutely NOTHING to do with America’s economic boom. It was the Trump tax cut, going all-in on energy, and America First Trade Deals that have reignited the American economic engine,” tweeted John Betts.

“Ahem,” tweeted Katica to Obama. She added this tweet by the president: “‘President Trump would need a magic wand to get to 4% GDP,’ stated President Obama. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this! We have just begun.”

“Was he ever REALLY President? everything bad he blamed on Bush, every scandal was a surprise he read about in the papers (he really needed better staffers to keep him informed) and now that he’s out, he thinks every wave of Trump’s ‘Magic Wand’ is his credit,” tweeted “Military Rosary.”

“Oooooooooops,” Caleb Hull tweeted to Obama. He added the video of the former president telling Americans “jobs aren’t coming back and when someone says he’s gonna bring all these jobs back…well, exactly how are you gonna do that? What magic wand do you have?”

“How much did you get paid to poison our schools with common core? You gave them $350 million in tax money and got a $65 million kickback in return…and math scores plummeting. I hope your Martha’s Island mansion was worth dumbing down American children,” tweeted Mindy Robinson.

President Obama in this clip states he’s working hard to negotiate trade deals to ‘raise wages in OTHER COUNTRIES.’ Yup, the former President said that. Listen to what the current President Trump is doing. #DemocraticSocialism And that my friends is why DJT is President,” tweeted “Dewey Defeats Truman.”

Obama famously said after he left the White House he would refrain from criticizing Trump, but he retracted that promise after hitting the campaign trail in 2018 to boost Democrats.

“When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now. Remember who started it,” Obama complained in a speech in Nevada in 2018. “Remember who started it! C’mon!”

Barack Obama’s ego is so fragile he can’t stand that President Trump actually took his failing economy and did just what the naysayers said he couldn’t do. It was Trump who cut taxes and got those tough trade deals through, and it was Trump who slashed all of Obama’s regulations that hindered businesses.

Trump’s economy is real. His economy has helped create new jobs that aren’t being paid by the government on a temporary basis. Obama’s so-called “economic recovery” was all smoke and mirrors he paid for out of taxpayer dollars. Poor Barry. He really thought he could take credit for the economic boom and no one would say a thing. Well, just like with all things Trump, Obama miscalculated, once again.
