Solid facts and figures were on President Trump's side, not Obama's

Former President Barack Obama belittled President Donald Trump on Monday by calling him a con artist while attempting to take credit for his booming economy.

Obama wrote on Twitter:

“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.”

Trump responded:

“Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration. He had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing.”

Trump continued:

“NOW, best jobs numbers ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes, and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”

Actor James Woods also had something to say about Obama's claims:

"The notion that you did anything but destroy this nation’s economy is beyond hilarious. 'Those jobs are never coming back. What’s he going to do, wave a magic wand?' Yes, @realDonaldTrump did exactly that. Your only sad legacy was your blatant lies about ObamaCare."

The Wall Street Journal took Trump's side after aksing 68 economists who was responsible for the booming economy, all of which responded by saying, “President Trump, and not Obama, who should be taking a bow.”

Solid facts and figures were also on Trump's side.

According to recent US employment data, unemployment figures in America dropped to the lowest levels since 1969, as Neon Nettle reported in November.

In September, Trump created 136,000 American jobs, as unemployment rates plummeted to just 3.5 percent.

But economists were expecting the number of new jobs to be between 120,000 and 179,000, with the consensus number at 145,000, according to Econoday.

Black unemployment rates also plummeted under Trump, falling to 5.4 percent, the lowest level since 1972, according to figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In August, Neon Nettle reported that the unemployment rate for African-Americans between the ages of 16 and 19 plummeted to 17.7 percent, the lowest rate since government records began in the early 1970s.

The White House reported:

“Minority hires overtook white hires last year. Women are predominantly driving this trend, which is so powerful that even many women who weren’t thinking about working — because they were in school, caring for kids or at home for other reasons — are being lured into employment, according to The Post’s analysis."
