Watch: Don Jr Gets Torn To Shreds By CNN Panel After Claiming Trump ‘Fixed’ The Economy That Obama ‘Could Not’

Donald Trump loves to gloat about “fixing” the economy and his son, Donald Trump Jr., is no different. Over the weekend, Trump took to Twitter where he shared a link from Breitbart, a right-wing news site, where his son claimed that his father fixed that economy that former President Barack Obama “could not.”

Trump tweeted:

“Exclusive — Donald Trump Jr. to Obama: My Dad Fixed the Economy You Could Not.”

But a CNN panel called out the Trumps with “simple math.”

According to CNN’s John King, the Trumps’ claims are not true.

“Donald Trump Jr. said how dare Barack Obama to try to take any credit for the economy,” King explained while displaying the tweet and reading, “Donald Trump Jr. to Obama: My dad fixed the economy, you could not.”

“Simple math,” King noted. “There have been 95 consecutive months of job growth — Donald Trump has been president for 19 months.”

“The recovery started under Barack Obama,” he added. “It has gained steam with tax cuts and deregulation, the president can claim all the credit he wants for that, but simple math there.”
