Barack Hussein Obama has spent the last few months traveling the world to bash President Donald Trump every chance he gets. That’s why it was particularly sickening on Tuesday when he tried to take credit for one of Trump’s major accomplishments during a speech.
Since Trump took office, our economy has grown leaps and bounds as the current president followed through on his promise to make our country great again. However, Obama claimed that this economic boom was the result of his own actions, saying that after his administration took steps to cut carbon emissions and signed on to the Paris climate accord “we saw the US economy grow consistently.”
“We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far,” Obama said while speaking at the North American Climate Summit in Chicago, according to Newsweek. “A streak that still continues, by the way. ‘Thanks, Obama.’”
This is, of course, a blatant lie, as job creation has been the result of Trump making that his main priority from day one of his presidency. Furthermore, Republican President Ronald Reagan’s job creation gains were far larger than they were under Obama.
Despite all of this, Obama argued that tough environmental policies are not “job killing” as President Trump argued during his roll-back of Obama-era regulations early this year.
Unfortunately for Obama, however, Twitter users were not about to let him get away with taking credit for Trump’s success:
Obama touts his economic record: ‘Thanks, Obama’ https://t.co/vjzfdtiMpK IF OBAMAs ARROGANT DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR WEREN’T SO FICTIONAL! IT WOULD BE LAUGHABLE! OBAMA TURNED OUR ECONOMY INTO A BANKRUPT 3RD WORLD SOCIALIST STATE OF WIC/PT EMPLOYMENT/HEALTHCARE DEPENDENCY! MAGA! DTS!

#BarackObama is galloping everywhere in the world with a simple message: “Trump is no good”. Bad performance by a disastrous American president, whose government was inefficient and quite negative for the country economy, security and progress. Obama is not an example to follow.
