While speaking about tax cuts for the wealthy, President Donald Trump claimed that he revived the economy before he took office as president.
Trump said, “We are here today to discuss our vision for America’s economic revival, which has already started. It started on November 8.”
Why should Trump stop at the economy? Trump can also take credit for ending World War II, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and putting a man on the Moon.
There is also the difficult little bit of truth that job growth under Trump has been slower than under Obama, and that economy lost jobs for the first time in 90 months under Trump.
The President’s claims are so detached from reality that one has to question if Trump is suffering from some sort of brain damage or mental deterioration. While the economy is slowing, Trump is claiming that a revival is occurring, and his plan to “bring back” the economy involves taking away health care from tens of millions of Americans while giving tax cuts to rich people like Donald Trump.
The President is so far gone that he can’t even see that he is bringing the economy back to the point of collapse that the country barely lived through with George W. Bush. What Donald Trump is selling is something that no American should want to buy.
