Former President Barack Obama on Monday suggested he was responsible for the booming economy under President Donald Trump.
“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,” Obama wrote on Twitter, sharing a picture of his $787 billion stimulus spending package.
Obama’s message on Twitter was not just a nostalgic look back on his presidency, as he specified that his spending package was responsible for “more than a decade” of growth, despite his only being president for eight years.
“When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now. Remember who started it,” Obama complained in a speech in Nevada in 2018. “Remember who started it! C’mon!”
