Bruce on Obama Taking Credit for Economy: He 'Didn't Understand How' Trump's Policies Would Work
Conservative commentator Tammy Bruce took issue with former President Obama taking credit for the burgeoning economy over the several months.
"We worked hard to turn this economy around. The actions that we took during the economic crisis" added to the economic growth, Obama said at a rally for Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray.
Bruce said Obama is speaking out and patting himself on the back because "he's worried about his own legacy... about how he's viewed."
"Trump ran on doing the opposite of what Obama is doing," she said. "Trump has done the reverse of everything he's done."
She said that therefore, the economic boom cannot be the product of the Obama administration's policies.
Bruce pointed to Obama's 2016 remark that President Donald Trump would need "a magic wand" to bring manufacturing jobs back.
"Conceptually, Barack Obama did not understand how that would work," she said, crediting his "lack of experience in business" for his understanding of Trump's platform.
