It’s only been two weeks since Trump has taken over the highest office in the nation and him, alongside his administration, are taking credit for what Obama did for America during his eight years in the presidency.
When Obama took over the country was going through a regression, 600,000 people were losing jobs every month. This was the result of the Bush administration. But thanks to Obama and his colleagues, the nation fought through the recession and oversaw the longest stretch of constant job growth in American history.
All the hard work that the Obama administration put in caused the nation to add 227,000 new jobs in the first month they took over. The unemployment rate ticked up to 4.8%, and It will be the 76th consecutive month of job growth in America.
Obama is responsible for such growth but the Trump administration have decided to put themselves on the high throne and take credit for something they didn’t do.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer said “Today’s report reflects the consumer confidence that the Trump presidency has inspired. According to a recent Gallup poll, economic confidence is at a new high, and ADP showed strong private-sector hiring. President Trump campaigned on putting Americans to work again. Even before he took office, the markets knew he’d deliver on that promise. The president has already taken significant steps to turn our economy around, and he’s looking forward to ensuring that every American that wants a job has the opportunity to find one.”
