Is Trump going to take credit for Obama's job and unemployment Numbers for the month of January?
According to Reuters News, Jobs in January. increased by 277,000. Unemployment is down to 4.8 %. Trump said while campaigning, "don't believe those numbers. The real rate is 28% to 35%.".
Now that Trump is in the White House, do you think he still believes his numbers, or does he believe Obama's numbers, and does he take credit for an increase of 277,000 jobs, which he had noting to do with?
To be seen, but I wouldn't be surprised by his dismissing them or by claiming they are his doing. I further. wouldn't be surprising in him doing both of those things. He's erratic and unpredictable.
This man is capable of almost anything. He seems to fly by the seat of his pants. Does things without seeming to have a real plan. Nothing he does surprises me. I just wonder what will be in his wake next.
Trump is so predictable. Sean Spicer says "Today's jobs report reflects the consumer confidence that the Trump presidency has inspired." The problem is Trump was sworn into office on Jan. 20. This report reflects Obama's terms as President. When questioned Spicer said, "The president doesn't deal in numbers, but faces."
How stupid do they think we are? If the report would have been bad, you can be sure that Trump and company would have been blamed Obama.
Mike, DowntroddeninDC seems to disagree with you on predictable. Mike It really doesn't matter at this point, because we have so many Obama immigrants to feed and care for, while Americans go homeless, jobless and are still on food stamps. 8rs Obama.
Brad: If your read DowntroddeninDC carefully, on the one hand he is agreeing with me, on the other hand, he is not. To me, Trump is predictable because I have his behavior figured out. He is a predictable narcissist. That's why I asked the questi
Since he's going to get blamed for all the problems like homelessness and poverty not reported while Obama was in office, sure, take credit for something.
Tamara: So just because you think Obama created homelessness and poverty, it's O.K. for Trump to take credit for Obama's success, even though Trump wasn't in office during that period? You win the prize for spin!
Mike, Obama didn't succeed, he didn't increase the stock market after the election did he. And yes, they are still only numbers. Can't you give him 100 days and then maybe you might have more to criticize and be more specific and factual.
Brad: Obama increased the stock market way before the election. I'm not waiting 100 days when Trump is taking credit for something he didn't create.
