Obama Takes Credit for Starting Booming Trump Economy

Former President Obama claimed Monday that he “handed off” a booming economy to President Trump.

At a rally for Democrats in Las Vegas, NV, President Obama said, “By the time I left office wages were rising … poverty was falling and that’s what I handed off to the next guy. So when you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now. Remember who started it. Remember who started it! C’mon!”

LISTEN: THE REAL REASON LIBERALS ARE PANICKING OVER THE ELECTION

Since Trump was elected, more than 4 million jobs have been created and more Americans are employed now than ever before in history. GDP growth for the second quarter of 2018 was 4.2 percent and is expected to exceed three percent for the calendar year.

The Washington Times reported, “Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin was less impressed, throwing another of Mr. Obama’s lines back at him in reaction to that clip.”

Remember who started it. Remember who started it! C’mon!

“You didn’t build that @BarackObama. Sit. Down,” she wrote on Twitter.

President Obama has endorsed more than 300 local and national Democrats for this year’s midterm elections.

In his statement endorsing the Democratic candidates, Obama said, “The Democratic Party has always made the biggest difference in the lives of the American people when we lead with conviction, principle and bold, new ideas. Our incredible array of candidates up and down the ticket, all across the country, make up a movement of citizens who are younger, more diverse, more female than ever before.”

Jobless Claims Plummet to Lowest Level in Half Century

The American economy continued to roar to life under President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress in October; with jobless claims dropping to 210,000 and reaching the lowest levels in nearly 50 years.

According to Market Watch, “The number of Americans losing their jobs and applying for unemployment benefits each week remained near a 49-year low in mid-October, suggesting no visible deterioration in a U.S. labor market.”

It can’t get a whole lot better in the U.S. job market. Openings just hit a record high, the U.S. unemployment rate has fallen to a 48-year low of 3.7% and hiring remains robust

“It can’t get a whole lot better in the U.S. job market. Openings just hit a record high, the U.S. unemployment rate has fallen to a 48-year low of 3.7% and hiring remains robust,” adds the report.

The strong economic data comes less than three weeks before American voters head to the polls; deciding whether or not Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats return to power in both the House and Senate.

In this episode I ask the question, “Is it time for a third-party in politics?” With the Republican Party consistently letting voters down, is it time to move on?

The Republican Party better get its act together because we may be looking at another recession. This piece sums up the reasons why.

Here’s another troubling reason the economy is sputtering along and you’re not getting a raise.
