Tell Trump: Cut the BS! You inherited Obama's economy just like your daddy's money!

From the first days of his consistently cringeworthy presidency, Donald Trump has claimed he and he alone brought back America from economic ruin, describing the years before 2016 as an apocalyptic hellscape straight out of “Mad Max.” As is often the case with our compulsive liar-in-chief, the facts tell a very different story.

The truth is that Trump inherited the longest economic expansion in U.S. history, and by virtually every economic measure (stock market, jobs, GDP) the economy improved more in the first three years of the Obama and Clinton administrations than his. He hasn’t improved the economy — he’s actually harmed it through his boneheaded trade war and government shutdowns. And, lest we forget, it was President Obama who inherited the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression. When Obama took office, the nation was losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month. If that pace had kept up, unemployment would be over 50%. But Obama turned things around, and did so with unprecedented speed..

Just as with his inherited fortune — which would be larger if he hadn’t started his businesses and just parked his massive inheritance in a simple index fund — Donald Trump is taking credit for something he was given.

Add your name to tell Trump to cut the BS and acknowledge that he inherited America’s economy just like his personal wealth!
