    How much of Trump's early success will Obama claim as part of his legacy, as if he controlled it?

    From the moment Donald Trump won the election, the world changed - the rise of globalism was thwarted with one giant step.  The stock-market, although performing well under Obama, climbed even higher.  World powers that had shown animosity towards America are now complacent.  The OECD recently revised their forecasts for the US Economy under Trump - expecting growth of 2.3 in 2017 and 3.0 in 2018 (growth under Obama 1.5 in 2016.)  Plus Mexico and Canada are ready to renegotiate, TPP is dead, and more.  All because of Trump, but on Obama's watch - wonder how much he'll try to take credit for?

    From the past history, he blamed Bush for his failures after 6 years in office. I guess he can use the same argument and claim any success for the next 6 years. Unless Trump screws up, then it is all Trump...haha

      That's exactly what I was thinking - he will wait until Trump is successful and then say he laid the "groundwork" for the success - if Trump fails, then it's a big "I told you so"

      "He'll wait for Trump to be successful"?  He's going to have a long wait.

      When you can learn to stop living so far in the past Leslie, you'll be better off.  15 years ago is an eternity in today's world

    Could you explain what you mean by "Trump's early success"?

      perhaps reading the question again might demonstrate them - or you could Google it

      Schwartz has this hate thing going with President Obama. I used to think it was bigotry. Now? I am certain it is a pathetic man who hasn't much accomplishment in his life, certainly not in league with President Barack Obama. Schwartz is a jealous man

      this is such history repeating...economic indicators are pretty good.trump comes in to a good situation, and will ride obamas wave.all the while, discounting the past 8 years,taking all the credit for himself. maybe if he credits the big o, wld help

    very easy why wall street loves him: deregulation, lowering corporate tax rate, getting rid of inheritance tax...a boondogle for the uber rich. and i doubt obama will claim trump, since trump is going to erase all 8 years with executive orders. gee, tyrant, anyone? obama has been nothing but gracious to trump, and you just cant resist another dig at him on his way out, huh?
    now you see why dumpy will get no quarter from this american. sore losers and sore winners. see how well you all take the constant downgrading of your prez.

      We can only hope that Trump can find a way to erase the last 8 years - hopefully we can get back all the lost jobs and wages Obama let go overseas as part of his Globalist agenda

      Anyone who lives in NJ as I do, knows why our taxes are sky high. 6 Corporate bankruptcies dumped on NJ taxpayers by Trump. This guy thinks he can reverse all that government is intended to be: Of the people, FOR the people, BY they people.

    FOLKS,
    I will be out of the office for the next 10 days. I am donating my time to the major airlines in LA to help load the luggage of all the celebrities who promised to leave the country if Trump won!
    I have also volunteered some time to work with the college students that are ‘hurting so badly’ over the great Trump victory that they cannot attend classes!  I am taking donations for crayons for these future leaders to let them learn how to connect the dots in their “fantasy life” coloring books!
    As posted on Arsebook, note:  “Democrats took an early lead which dramatically changed in the late afternoon once Republicans got off work & went to vote!"

      And he's getting crazier by the minute. World leaders are salivating over our demise. He got the electors votes and is still claiming that the election was rigged.

      Leslie, please try to understand that there is no way Trump will not be the next President - the silly recount plan doesn't even sound like it will get past PA......

      Why so cynical?  I'm betting you'll spend the next eight years bashing Trump, even while the nation improves all around you.  Obama waves bye-bye while jobs leave America but there's no outrage - Trump saves some and there's outrage

      You must hate to see America win Leslie.  President Obama has done NOTHING to secure jobs for the future...NOTHING.  Cutting taxes to keep factories here is a plan for success - just watch as see.
