REALLY? Obama Takes Credit For Economic Growth Under Trump In Speech [VIDEO]

Well, this just figures. Obama had the stones to literally thank himself in a speech last week as he took credit for the economic growth that President Trump has ignited. At a Chicago climate summit, he spoke to a rapturous crowd and told them that despite “resistance at every step of the way,” his administration’s efforts to fight climate change resulted in a better economy. Uh, excuse me? Climate change has had NOTHING to do with this economy. If anything, it has cost us millions that we could ill afford. Obama is a delusional Marxist.

“As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way.” He then had the nerve to add: “Thanks Obama.” Excuse me while I vomit… A LOT. What a freaking liar. I know a lot of people who were unemployed the whole time Obama was in office. He had us in a quasi-depression. There were no jobs for eight long years. Under President Trump that has finally started turning around. He’s brought manufacturing back and has reinstated energy production. The US is benefiting hugely from being more self-sufficient.

At the Chicago speech, Obama stated that forward-thinking environmental policies lead to economic growth. He said the U.S. is in an “unusual” position as the only country that hasn’t signed on to the Paris Agreement after Syria signed last month. “The good news is that the Paris Agreement was never going to solve the climate crisis on its own. It was going to be up to all of us,” Obama informed the gathering of mayors from around the world who were there to sign the Chicago Climate Charter. The agreement, modeled on the Paris Agreement, commits individual cities to bringing down their carbon emissions.

Cities from across the U.S. including New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., have all said they will commit to lowering their carbon footprint and take action on their own without President Trump. “Ultimately the work is done on the ground,” Obama said. “Cities and states and businesses and universities and nonprofits have emerged as the new face of American leadership on climate change.” These are Marxists and climate change agreements do nothing but devastate the economy and make wealthy elites even wealthier.

I’m surprised Obama wasn’t struck by lightning while saying this. That takes massive hubris. Remember how he shut down coal plants? He stopped oil production and he shuttered manufacturing. Obama didn’t care that utilities skyrocketed and that people were in real trouble over his policies. He literally chased businesses out of the country with burdensome taxation and regulations. And he has the nerve to try and take credit for what Trump has done. Talk about arrogant. His subjects loudly cheered and applauded him. Then they laughed. Clueless useful idiots. Then to top it off, this vain asshat winked at his audience as if he was sharing a secret joke. Obama did more damage to the US than any other president in my lifetime. He came very close to destroying this country.

Since Trump has been in office, the stock market has skyrocketed 30 percent. We are on course for a third quarter with over 3 percent growth. The jobless rate has dropped to a 17-year low of 4.1 percent. Why? Because Trump has nixed a ton of regulations and he’s about to slash taxes. Neither of which Obama would ever do. Business leaders and economists both give all the credit for this to President Trump. U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) said earlier this year that Obama’s administration was the first to never have a “whole year of 3 percent growth.” Small wonder… Marxism will do that to an economy.

The highest GDP growth Obama ever reached was 2.6 in 2015. In 2016, the highest he could get was 0.8 percent. Overall, Obama’s entire presidency resulted in a 1.5 percent GDP growth. Trump has just started his presidency and he’s already reached three percent. Obama didn’t build that… not even close. Job creation under both Democrat President Bill Clinton and Republican Ronald Reagan was by far larger than the gains made under Obama.

Obama all but destroyed this country with his communist policies. Our debt spiraled out of control under Obama… he added $9 trillion to the national debt. This is the same guy who regulated industries, forced people to pay for healthcare services they’d never use and oversaw the worst GDP growth of any modern president. For him to try and take credit for what Trump has done is obscene and predictable. The only thing Obama was good at was spending money, partying and crushing the spirit of America.
