Just When We All Thought Cory Booker Couldn’t Possibly Say Anything Dumber, He Claims Trump Is Taking Credit For Obama’s Economy

on

Democratic New Jersey Senator Cory Booker went on CNN’s low-rated, alt-left weekend show “State of the Union” this Sunday where he relentlessly bashed President Trump

In an absurd statement, he accused President Trump of taking credit for the United States’ growing economy that “started under Obama.”

Booker stated, “First of all, I love Trump is taking credit for a recovery that started under Obama. Who is this economy going to work for? We have a tax plan that was all about giving the wealthiest plan more of a break. My vision for this country is target things like massive increasing income tax credit to actual workers. We have to make sure this is a shared recovery. Right now it definitely is not.”

Fox News reports:

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow denounced Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Sunday after the 2020 White House candidate said President Trump was “taking credit for a recovery that started under [former President Barack] Obama.”

“What Mr. Booker and some others are saying is simply not true factually,” Kudlow explained to Fox News’ “America’s News HQ”.

Just two days after the April jobs report was published, Kudlow came forward. The report showed that 263,000 jobs were added to the United States’ economy in April. The unemployment rate plummeted to just 3.6 percent, which is the lowest it’s been since 1969.

In the Fox News report they explained that “despite the rosy numbers, Booker insisted that the boom’s effects were not being felt across all economic levels.”

Booker claimed while on CNN’s “State of the Union,” “You have people on my block – I’m the only presidential candidate that lives in a low-income inner-city neighborhood. Talk to folks, and they’ll tell you: ‘I have to work two jobs just to try to keep myself in housing. And, by the way, that housing isn’t reflected in any of my family.’ Americans are struggling. Their wages are too low … for the last four decades, I don’t think they’ve budged that much … We’ve got to make sure that this is a shared recovery, because, right now, it definitely is not.”

Kudlow disagreed:

“I’m just gonna use the damn facts,” he explained to Fox News’ Leland Vittert. “On the wage front, [average hourly earnings are] rising 3.2 percent overall. The bottom [poorest] quarter [of workers], 4.4 percent increase, the top quarter, 3.5 percent [increase].”

Kudlow continued, “First of all, both are good and a rising tide is lifting all boats. But the point I’m making is, it’s the blue collar people that have the fastest job expansion and it’s the blue collar people that have the best wage growth.”

Fox reports:

Kudlow reacted to the April jobs report in a video posted on the White House’s Instagram page Friday afternoon.

“Wow! Low unemployment, high jobs, high wages, big consumer confidence, major productivity and no inflation,” said an enthusiastic Kudlow while gesturing toward the camera. “It’s totally awesome. We’re killing it on the economy.”

“I don’t know how I had the energy to do that,” Kudlow said Sunday. “I just walked out and, I don’t know, man, let her rip. These are blowout numbers. The economy is going great guns and POTUS’ [Trump’s] policies, to be perfectly honest, his policies to rebuild this economy have entered us into a tremendous prosperity cycle. And I don’t see any end to it right now.”
