President Trump is extremely lacking when it comes to actual accomplishments to point to now that he’s been in office for six months, so his Plan B is to continue to point to positive economic indicators that are Obama’s doing and pretend like they are his own.
On Sunday, while on vacation at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump posted a series of images to Twitter detailing some of the most positive indicators to come out in recent weeks. The images — screenshots from Fox News — paint the positive economic state of the U.S. as an accomplishment of President Trump’s, but again, such is not the case. President Obama’s last fiscal year isn’t even over yet. To call Fox’s characterization of Trump’s economic policies as a success premature is a serious understatement.
Check out Trump’s Twitter post below. It details the recently reached all-time high stock market level, the lowest unemployment rate in 16 years, the high jobs creation rate in July 2017, and a couple of corporate decisions to invest in their U.S. operations.

Three out of four of those points have absolutely nothing to do with the president. The only one that does have something to do with him is the corporate investment in U.S. operations, but still, even if the companies say their decisions are because of Trump, the positive economic conditions allowing them to make the decisions aren’t because of Trump.
