Obama’s last year in office 2.3% drop in 2nd quarter of 2016 at 1.8% at final quarter for unemployment. That means that for about a year before exiting no new policies, changes in strategy, or efforts. He did not set anything new to stimulate change. While the people spending and seeking jobs created the demand, our Government policies and a leader that seeks business ventures to create growth is what spiked the effort of 4.2% growth.

so if trump is doing all those great things, why has the nation debt increased a lot in such a short time??????...it is easy to borrow money and brag about how good it is.....

Obama said the jobs weren’t coming back. He had no magic wand! Trump gets ALL the credit for the booming economy.

The first black president didn't do anything for the country ,we asked for change and and literally that's all we got. It was brought up he should be on a u.s bill I would vote for the food stamp ,thank God we finally have a real president in the white house (BUILD THE WALL)

When does Obama’s economy end? Lmao after trump leaves office
Rick Wolf
By all means, lets give all the credit to our past Coward-In-Chief Obama. Obama was good at looking into the camera, smile like a possum eating shit, and then lie to the public. And fools like YOU bought his BS. LOOK at all the States and Cities run by Liberals - they're a FN mess. You guys have the denial of an alcoholic. Regulation and taxation is what OBAMA was good at, and Democrats want to strangle America with this agenda, that way they can step in and control us all.

At 4.3 percent, the unemployment rate is at its lowest level since 2001. But left out of this figure are people who are working part time or fewer hours than they desire -- - the underemployed. NewsHour Weekend’s Christopher Booker reports on how the underemployed are struggling in the U.S. economy.
