Former President Barack Obama attempted to take credit for the strong economy under President Trump while also blaming former President George W. Bush for the economy he inherited during a campaign event in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday.

“When I walked into office ten years ago, we were in the middle of the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes,” Obama said.

Obama then attacked former President George W. Bush’s administration for running the economy into the ground.

“Because of the work we did working with people like Harry Reid, who[m] I love, we got the economy growing again,” Obama said. “So by the time I left office, wages were rising, the uninsurance rate was falling, poverty was falling. And that’s what I handed off to the next guy.”

“So, when you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it,” Obama said.

CNBC recently called the American economy a “tremendous achievement” for Trump, highlighting that “during his time in office, the economy has achieved feats most experts thought impossible. GDP is growing at a 3-percent plus rate. The unemployment rate is near a 50-year low. Meanwhile, the stock market has jumped 27 percent amid a surge in corporate profits.”
