Trump wants Obama to know he has a 'magic wand'

And he tweeted a video showing him winning the presidential election

Obama broke with a tradition apparently only modern Republican ex-presidents follow, which is not to speak ill of your successor.

Last month, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders falsely claimed that Trump has created three times as many jobs for black workers as his predecessor Barack Obama did during his entire time in office.

"He wasn't even in the neighborhood of right", Wolfers said in an interview. But his opponent at that time, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, seized on the comment as evidence that Obama didn't appreciate small business. "I have to say to President Obama, it wasn't him, and if the Democrats got in with their agenda ... instead of having 4.2 [percent GDP growth] up, you have 4.2 down, you'd be in negative numbers".

"I guess I have a magic wand", Trump said, pointing to 4.2 percent GDP growth in the last quarter.

By the time Obama left office, the unemployment rate had declined from a high approaching 8 percent at the start of his administration to just under 5 percent, but was beginning to tick back upward, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Unemployment rate is at near-20-year lows, but recorded its steepest declines while Obama was in charge.

Minaj wants to donate $25000 to Geoffrey Owens
Owens played Elvin Tibideaux, the husband of the eldest daughter of Bill Cosby's character on the TV series in the 1980s and 90s. The outcry from the public was very negative, with many accusing the publications of shaming him over his choice in career.

But economists tell AFP the truth is closer to splitting the baby: neither president is exclusively responsible and yet both deserve some of the credit for an economic recovery that without a doubt began under Obama.

Hourly earnings, which were largely stagnant during the Obama years, have increased an average 2.9 percent over the last year.

If that pattern holds, Trump's approval rating would have to climb back into the low 40s for Republicans to have a realistic chance of stopping Democrats from winning the net 23 seats they need to take the House. Trump said on Monday in a posting on Twitter. Trump has systematically dismantled Obama's legacy via deregulation, tax cuts and by eliminating the individual mandate in Obamacare, so it's understandable why Obama is desperate for accolades. Instead of taking to Twitter for a blistering attack, he joked that Obama's speech put him to sleep.

Hillary couldn't win on Obama's record: Lastly, if Obama's economy was so great, why couldn't Hillary Clinton ride the wave into the presidency like George H.W. Bush was able to do with Ronald Reagan?

Sanders asserted at the August 14 White House press briefing that Trump had tripled Obama's eight-year job creation record in just 18 months, quoting numbers that are not even close to accurate. The Daily Caller reported the truth in a 2014 column titled "Obama's Economy in Action!" It was just a disgusting thing. Really for made-up reasons, I think. Keep showcasing people who were unemployed during the Obama years, but now have jobs.

Flesh and blood are more powerful than ink and paper and TV news.
