O'Reilly Explains How Trump Can Succeed Where Obama Failed
In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly explained how President-elect Donald Trump can succeed where President Obama failed.
O'Reilly said that Obama came up short in two major areas: boosting the economy and making Americans feel safe.
On the economic front, "The Factor" host said that the president has made it difficult for corporations to invest in America.
He explained that Obama declined to lower the corporate tax rate and prevented corporations from bringing back profits they're hoarding overseas, which would have been huge economic stimulators.
"To be polite, President Obama does not understand macroeconomics and generally sees private business as an opponent of social justice," O'Reilly said, adding that Obama also failed to work out a fair percentage for individual taxes.
As for national security, O'Reilly argued that the Obama doctrine of "containment through diplomacy" simply has not worked.
He pointed to the Middle East's refugee crisis and the suffering in countries like Iraq and Syria, saying that's the result of Obama's weak response to radical Islamic terrorism.
O'Reilly said that Trump should learn from those mistakes.
"Most Americans want a robust economy and a vibrant national defense, including border protection. If Donald Trump can make those two things happen, he will succeed in the toughest job in the world."
