    • With One Tweet, Obama Takes Credit For The Economy Back From Trump
      https://www-politicususa-com.cdn.amp...my-credit.html
      Former President Barack Obama reminded everyone who is really responsible for the current economy with a single tweet marking the anniversary of the Recovery Act.

      Obama tweeted:

      Barack Obama

      @BarackObama
      Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

      Trump’s biggest contribution to economic policy was a massive tax cut for the wealthy and corporations that he promised would generate 6% growth, jobs, and pay for itself. None of these things have happened. Growth has slowed, the tax cut has blown a trillion-dollar hole in the deficit, and the wave of good-paying jobs never came. The Trump tax cut had no positive impact on jobs.

      Trump’s first three years of job growth are worse than Obama’s, as the economy is slowing under the current president.

      The credit for the growth that has been achieved belongs to Barack Obama. Trump hasn’t created the greatest economy in history. He has ridden Obama’s coattails and sabotaged growth with a massive tax cut for the wealthy and corporations that are so toxic that even Republicans won’t campaign on it.

      • Notice how the words fraud and corruption are mentioned.

        Trump commutes Blagojevich's sentence, pardons others

        ​​​​​Trump also announced pardons for former New York police commissioner Bernie Kerik, convicted of tax fraud and lying to officials; Mike Milken, an investment banker known as the "Junk Bond King" who was convicted of felony charges that included securities fraud and conspiracy; and Eddie DeBartolo Jr., the former owner of the San Francisco 49ers who pleaded guilty in 1998 to failing to report a felony in a bribery case.

          Probably because Trump doesn't consider fraud and corruption to be crimes, just another day at the office for the apprentice President.

          • Presidents give pardons and sentence commutations all the time.

            Obama granted something like 1900 of them. Trump hasn't granted anywhere near that many.

            • How many of those 1900 were doing illegal favours for Obama like Stone was for Trump?


              Yeahhh you know you don't have a point at all.

              Try again. You'll fail and double back.

                  • Obama let off almost a hundred times more criminals than Trump has.

                    Somehow that makes Trump worse. Trump is always worse to the deranged.

                      Are all criminals equal?

                        Lol that's the best excuse you have? That all pardons are somehow equivalent? Today I learned that bribery, extortion, right wing terrorism, perjury, obstruction of justice, murder, war crimes, are all equivalent to drug charges.

                        Let's look at just two recent examples:

                        Blagojevich: Used his position of power as pay-to-play. Convicted to 14 years Trump says he doesn't know him, even though he was on celebrity apprentice. His family donated over 200,000 to the Trump Campaign. How do you justify this?

                        Eddy Gallagher: Quotes to describe him from fellow service members, Navy Seals mind you, are "toxic", "OK with Killing anything that moved", "freaking evil". He was lauded by Trump as a "great fighter". How do you justify this? Are Navy Seals now part of the deep state?

                        • Quid pro quo

                          Remember "I love WikiLeaks" - Donald Trump

                          Trump offered to pardon Assange if he said Russia not involved in 2016 Wikileaks dump, court told

                          At Westminster Magistrates' Court, Assange's barrister, Edward Fitzgerald, referred to a witness statement by former U.S. Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher who had visited Assange in 2017, saying that he had been sent by the president to offer a pardon.

                          The pardon would come on the condition that Assange complied with the U.S. by saying that the Russians were not involved in the email leak which hurt Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016, Rohrabacher's statement said.

                            Obama letting off disadvantaged black petty criminals who were charged to the fullest extent of the law is pretty different from Trump letting off privileged white collar criminals such as Judith Negron for her role in a $205 million Medicare fraud scheme.

                              • MEXICO TIGHTENS BORDER AFTER TRUMP PARDONS WHITE-COLLAR CRIMINALS


                                MEXICO CITY (The Borowitz Report)—The government of Mexico announced that it was tightening its border with the United States “effective immediately” after Donald Trump pardoned a host of white-collar criminals on Tuesday.

                                Speaking to reporters, the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said that Mexican border agents were on alert to prevent any recipients of Trump’s pardons from crossing into their country.

                                “They’re bringing bribery, they’re bringing tax evasion, they’re bringing racketeering,” Obrador said. “I wish I could say that some of them were good people, but that does not appear to be the case.”
