Obama and Trump trade claims on the economy

Former President Obama recognized the 11th anniversary of the signing of the $800 billion Recovery Act and noted that it started a record period of economic growth. President Trump countered that the recovery was the weakest in history. During the last three years of Obama’s administration the economy added 8.1 million jobs while it gained 6.6 during the first three years under Trump.

It took Obama 15 years but he finally help America by driving up wages and the stock market. Clearly not the Trump bump.
