'I Don't Think He's Right': Kudlow Reacts to Obama Taking Credit for Economic Recovery
National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow took issue with former President Barack Obama stating "remember who started" the country's economic recovery after the Great Recession.
Obama made the remark Monday at a rally in Nevada for Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), responding to Trump's repeated claim that his administration has turned the American economy around.
"When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it. Remember who started it,” Obama said. "I hope people notice that they run things into the ground and we have to come and clean things up."
On "Fox & Friends" Tuesday, Kudlow respectfully disagreed with Obama's statement, pointing out that the economy was at two percent growth under Obama's stewardship, but it's at three to four percent under Trump.
"President Trump has cut tax rates on small businesses and corporations and individuals -- and he wants to do some more. That's a huge difference from President Obama," Kudlow said.
He added that Trump has rolled back onerous regulations and stopped the war on fossil fuels.
"Look at the confidence metric. Obama had nothing like that," Kudlow said. "Almost from the day of the election, consumer sentiment and small business confidence has soared."
He warned, however, that if Democrats retake the House in the midterm elections, it would have an adverse effect on the economic recovery.
"The biggest threat, the thing I worry about the most, is a change in the House, which will overturn the tax cuts and the regulatory reduction. My biggest worry."
