Sarah Sanders Laughs Watching Obama Taking Credit for Trump Economy, Then Drops the Perfect Response

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Fox News Saturday that former President Barack Obama’s attempt to take credit for President Donald Trump’s economy is “laughable.”

“We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far,” Obama stated during his Tuesday speech at the North American Climate Summit in Chicago.“A streak that still continues, by the way. ‘Thanks, Obama.’”

He added that “we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently” after his administration shifted its focus toward carbon regulations and clean energy, Fox News reported.

“I think it’s laughable that President Obama thinks he has anything to do with the success of where the economy is right now,” Sanders said during her appearance on “Watters’ World.”

Host Jesse Watters pointed out that over 200,000 jobs were added in November, and the U.S. unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in 17 years.

“This is all a direct result not just of President Trump’s swearing-in, but from the minute he was elected, consumer confidence got stronger, businesses wanted to participate in our economy again, because they have confidence in this president,” the White House press secretary stated.

Sanders also cited U.S. gross domestic product growth rate increases during Trump’s tenure as another example of why U.S. economic success should be attributed to the 45th president.

“There’s a reason that it continues to go up, and it started when President Trump was elected and when he got into office,” Sanders added. “It had nothing to do with President Obama, and I think everybody knows it, including President Obama. And I think it’s pretty laughable that he’s trying to take credit for it.”
As reported by The Western Journal, the Dow Jones Industrial Average surpassed the 19,000, 20,000, 21,000, 22,000, 23,000, and 24,000 marks for the first time in U.S. history under Trump’s administration. Also, the day after Trump secured a presidential victory, the DOW reportedly closed at a record high of 18,589, according to CNN Money.

In March, Trump tweeted a photo of a graph showing that consumer comfort level surpassed 50 for the first time since 2007.
Data released by the Commerce Department in November showed that the U.S. economy grew at a faster rate in the third quarter than analysts had initially predicted, with GDP reaching upwards of 3.3 percent, 0.3 percent higher than the initial estimate of 3.0.

According to the Commerce Department, the growth was largely attributed to an increase in government investment.

Trump celebrated the news regarding U.S. economic improvements on Twitter.

“Looks like another great day for the Stock Market. Consumer Confidence is at Record High,” Trump wrote in November. “I guess somebody likes me (my policies)!”
According to Bloomberg News, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen expressed to lawmakers in November that “with gradual adjustments in the stance of monetary policy, the economy will continue to expand and the job market will strengthen somewhat further, supporting faster growth in wages and incomes.’’
