Republicans have spent months bragging about the economy and crediting President Trump with creating a booming economy. I mean if you turn on Fox News it is the economy this and the economy that. Even on CNN the Republicans on the panel won’t stop bragging about the economy and talking up President Trump as being a genius job creator. The biggest problem with the Republican narrative is the fact that President Obama created more jobs than President Trump. Records are being broken because we have had 95 consecutive months of job growth in which President Obama was the President for 75 of those months.
I could quote Patricia Cohen of the New York Times:
Jobs created during President Obama last 18 months: 3.7 million
Jobs created during President Trump first 18 months: 3.4 million
Or I could quote Don Lemon of CNN:
Jobs created in President Trump first 19 months: 3.58 million
Jobs created in President Obama last 19 months: 3.96 million
Either way, President Obama created more jobs than President Trump.
