Barack Obama can’t get over the fact that Donald Trump won the 2016 election.
Every time Trump rolls back another piece of Obama’s legacy it rubs salt in the wound of the former President.
And Barack Obama told this huge lie about Trump. You won’t believe how Trump fired back.
On Sunday, Barack Obama posted a tweet marking the anniversary of when Obama signed the nearly one trillion dollar “stimulus” bill into law.
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history. pic.twitter.com/BmdXrxUAUf

The bill was an utter failure as the Obama administration posted the weakest economic recovery in American history – a point Donald Trump made in his Tweets responding to Obama attempting to take credit for President Trump’s historic economic boom.
President Trump fired back at Obama by tweeting, “Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration.”
“He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing,” Trump continued. “NOW, best jobs numbers ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
During Obama’s time in office he rarely talked up the economy.
Instead he blamed President George W. Bush for leaving him a mess.
That strategy made sense as Obama had little to no economic record of achievement to speak of and the Fake News Media would gladly give Obama a pass to focus on Bush.
But after eight years of whining about his predecessor, Obama is showing a lot nerve to claim credit for Donald Trump’s economic boom.
