This is the liberal media’s new narrative: President Barack Obama left a strong economy behind for President Donald Trump to enjoy. At least, that’s what a CNN Money article said:
By contrast, Obama handed Trump an economy that was close to what economists consider full employment. The unemployment rate on Inauguration Day was 4.8%, and it has fallen since then, to 4.4% in June…
In fact, if Obama left a problem for Trump, it wasn’t that the economy was too weak — it was that the labor market was almost too strong. Employers would probably be hiring faster if they weren’t having so much trouble finding the workers they need.
Well, if the economy was so strong, then how did Trump’s populist, pro-jobs agenda win over blue collar Democratic voters?
