  1. Remember recently when Drumpf proudly shut down the Federal government just before the holidays for like 3 solid weeks and the resulting stock markets had their biggest tanking since the Great Depression? Yeah. I think we're finally starting to see the budding effects of the Donald's business savvy in play here.

  2. The economy is night and day different now that Trump is president.

    Where I live, employers are begging for jobs. One company's satellite plant had to close its doors because not enough help. Banners out everywhere, billboards begging for help.

    One lady tells me her company is paying 20 dollars an hour to start and they cant get any job applicants.

    Part of the problem is during Obama's food stamp program in which record numbers of people were put on food stamps is that they now THINK they are entitled to them when plenty of full time work is available.

    Almost nobody knows why the sudden increase in jobs started showing up after 8 years of what Obama couldnt accomplish.

    THEEEEE reason for the job increases are because of what Trump did to become allies again with Israel.

    Genesis 12:3– God says He would bless those who bless Israel

  3. Funny how they dont mention the 9 trillion dollars added to US dept during Obama's term. 🤔 How about we compare BOTH job numbers AND Dept numbers??………….#Trump2020

  5. Yeah it was Obama! He had this 9 year plan to have his replacement reverse and eliminate everything he did in the ninth year. LOL

  6. Ig wel pay no attention to how when it came to bringing the economy and jobs back Obama couldn't even get past which "magical wand" he was g2 try first…

  7. Obama created more jobs with lower wages that forced people to depend on the government for assistance, Trump has created more jobs with wages that allow people to pay thier bill and not need welfare.

  8. MSNBC isn’t the most credible source for economic discussion. Look, as long as you align yourself with a political ideology you will continue to be a plague upon this nation. Stop thinking left and right, and start thinking The United States. What’s better for this nation? That should be the end all question within every single aspect of categorical debate.

  9. I may be 6 months late for this, but Trump deserves credit for the booming economy. Under Obama, 43 million Americans were on public assistance and outside the labor force. That's 13% unemployment. Also, does anyone remember what Obama said about Trump bringing jobs back to the US? "Some of those jobs aren't coming back. What does Trump need a magic wand to bring those jobs back?"

  10. Of course this bias media will not bother to mention the redacted social healthcare legislation (Trump put in to play) required small businesses to have heath care which ultimately caused small businesses to pay up or shut their doors. Obama used legislation to boost public sector jobs not private sector jobs. The little guy, (brick and mortar). I didn’t have and could not find a full time job anywhere. The reason being, no one could afford full time employees so the majority of jobs available were at minimum wage and under $15.00 hourly. I would need to get four jobs in order to make ends meet.
    The point is, and if you listen closely, you will notice there is no mention of the kind of jobs available while Obama was in office. The job opinions were nonprofit or get a government position.

  11. I thought I would learn something watching this video. The only thing I picked up was how this lady wanted no credit to our president even tho he had nearly as many jobs as Obama except trump did it in his first year and Obama did it in his last. Give the man 4 more years and he will exceed your unfair expectations lady

  12. If you leave the economy alone, it will thrive, but you can't take credit. If you try to fix the economy you can take credit, but the economy will fail. Leave the economy alone and it will explode. Stop trying to fix it and take the credit. Just let it be.

  13. Over 6 million new jobs: Over 600,000 new Manufacture jobs and Obama said Mfg jobs are dead. Hillary said – "We are going to put a lot of coal miners out of business" So Obama does not get the thanks for the 600,000 NEW Mfg jobs. Because they would do nothing to help Mfg jobs. Infact Hillary was going to try to put them (Coal Miners and all Non-Alternate energy jobs (Like oil) out of business.

  14. What obama did was create 9 dollar an hour jobs where skilled labor where a good job was let go to foreign competitors

  15. It was the Obozo Clown who said 1% GDP was the new norm.
    The Clown also said jobs that have left aren't coming back, Trump would need a magic wand.
    These two statements totally debunks what the Clown is trying to preach.

  16. This is Obama's economy Trump has not did anything to make the economy better if anything he is slowing progress down and Republicans always talking about welfare now Trump is cutting farmers welfare checks because of the trade war with China not buying much of our agriculture Trump and Republicans Hypocrites all the way around

  17. Republicans crying right now.. oh forgot they have selective thinking.. trump said republicans were dumb those were his words.. anybody with common sense knows Obama did this..

  18. Obama was a FAILURE. Look what he didn't do for the Economy, or for his own black people! Donald Trump gets the credit, 2 1/2 years after a failed Obama Presidency, in creating a Booming Economy. Just look around. Anyone with a brain can see the Booming Economy. It hits you in the face. Obama tops the list for Failed Presidents, while Donald Trump tops the list for most Creative, and Successful Presidents America has seen in my 70 years on this Earth!

    If you sincerely Love America, you will love Donald Trump! If you hate America, and all it stands for, you are not a true American. Try Cuba, I hear they are hiring!

  19. Obama actually hurt his own recovery . He placed 78 restrictions on businesses that any businessman will tell you , killed the economy .

  20. This expert MSNBC is using is NOT AN EXPERT . HE'S A DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVE . PUT HIM NEXT TO SHAWN HANNITY OR TUCKER CARLSON AND HE WILL KEEP HIS STUPID MOUTH SHUT .

  21. Let's talk about Obama is the worst president ever what are you guys like about him Obamacare that sucks premium keeps going up nobody can afford that oh wait a minute he lied he said he you can keep your Healthcare but he forgot to tell you that you would pay a penalty my friend working Landscaping he said every year when he did his income tax they would take out money because he did not have Obamacare yet different insurance and that hit him where it hurts what else did he accomplish oh yeah the stock market crashed when he was in office oh yeah he sold uranium one with Hillary Clinton to Russia that disappeared he was mocking the Bible mocking God I get it you hate Trump

  22. One of the 48 Laws of Power is to take credit for another man work so you know Trump read that book

  23. What about the deficit!!!! The economy is not maintaining growth because of Trump but inspite of him.

  24. Obama was one of the worst presidents but media think he was the best just because he was the first black president.
    Media lie.

  25. Remember when the apprentice ratings were down , he told people that they were great. Same thing why would Trump stop lying.

  26. Obama is a Marxist, therefore any improvement in the free-market economy is Donald Trump's accomplishment.
    Barack Obama was incompetent. As president, he was in over his head since day 1.

  27. Did you forget to figure in the field hand jobs that immagrants gave up? And are you counting unemployment insurance money as a job. I see an abundance of part time jobs paying minimum wage. Look at the whole picture before you parrot Trump.

  28. Seeing as how the two men's economic strategies are polar opposites and the economy improved at more or less the same rate under both of them, the lesson seems to be that presidential policy doesn't have much effect on the economy, that the economy is too big for policies to control. If it rains whether you do a rain dance or not, it means the rain dance has no effect. 😕

  29. Their comparing Obamas 2 years and trumps 1 year. Imagine Trump in 2 years, those numbers will be higher than Obamas. Look at now The economy has been at its best in US history. Also Obama added $9 trillion in debt, THAT IS NOT GOOD. So who deserves the credit, Certainly NOT OBAMA.

  30. The numbers are so much higher now and obama had absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Obama had the biggest economic downfalls of all time. 9 trillion dollar deficit increase. That is a number most people cannot even understand.

  31. Wait wait wait President Obama has been president for six years and only did 3.96 million jobs added And President Trump has been president for two years in already added 3.58 million jobs added what President Obama did in six years Trump did it in two years no matter in what trumps going to do for the year 2024 in that one on time I’m watching this video he already created 6 million jobs

  32. Obama is the most pathetic US president of all time and I think we all know why he was elected not because he was smart responsible or care taking but because he was black am I right or am I wrong?

  33. The debt doubled under Obama because he was repairing everything Bush destroyed. Now this businessman who is supposed to help the debt, is still letting it go up like crazy. 3Trillion in 2.5 years. Obama repaired the housing market, tried to create and affordable Healthcare and raised the Economy after Bush screwed all of that. Now Trump, rather than trying to improve Obamacare, is making it worse to try to get it abolished which is only making the debt worse. The only positives are continuing to raise the economy and create more jobs. Which all have to do with wealth. Health is more important than wealth and he doesn’t care. The wall will only quadruple the debt and is so pointless.

  34. Hahaha it says don't make a bad comment but y'all are talking so much dumb stuff I mean this is ridiculous and haters always lie so those figures you're saying aren't true because we all know fake news fake fake fake news haters are haters and between God and Devil GOD always wins and who's worshiping who

  35. ALL TRUMP HAS DONE IS CUT REGULATIONS THAT PROVIDES A BETTER FUTURE FOR GENERATIONS TO COME!!!
    I GUESS MONEY AND POLLUTION ARE BETTER THAN CLEAN AIR AND WATER!!
    ITS NOT LIKE WE NEED RESOURCES LIKE CLEAN AIR AND WATER…
    YOUR GRANDCHILDREN WILL AGREE MONEY NOW IS BETTER THAN THIER FUTURE!!!
