Trump is trying to take credit for the low unemployment rates

However, unemployment started to drop since 2010, before Trump took office. Trump can fool some of the people, some of the time, but not all the people, all the time.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment percentages for blacks, Hispanics, and Asians have been noticeably decreasing since 2010 and continue to do so.
We all need to do a fact check on whatever Donald Trump claims. Here's the latest one's on Trump's polls. https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2019/06/17/trump-campaign-internal-polling-jake-tapper-monologue-lead-vpx.cnn On Trump's lies: https://www.nrdc.org/trump-lies

@cicerone imposter,
I've pointed this out to a few people. They refuse to believe the evidence which is right in front of them.

@cicerone imposter,
Yes, Trump inherited a good economy, but he's been in office for two and a half years now. At some point you have to say his administration gets some credit for at least not rocking the boat too much. My thumb rule is that the economy is a battleship that takes one to one and a half years to turn. I didn't credit Clinton for the upturn when he took office, I didn't blame GW Bush for the downturn when he came into office and I didn't blame Obama for the crash he inherited. That said, we're far enough into the current administration that you can't reasonably say this is an Obama economy.

@engineer,
I believe trying to give credit for the economy to one president is a mistake. All the economies of the world are tied together is many respects. The feds play with interest rates and the circulation of currency. Not many presidents or economists understand the issues of what makes an economy tick. There is no way to forecast future economic activity. At least, that's what I learned in college. Many financial pundits have been threatening a recession for the past four or five years, if not longer. There is no tool to measure future economic activity, because everything is in flux. Even past GDP numbers are revised, and that's after the fact. The stock markets works as much on fear as future economic prospects. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-neither-trump-nor-clinton-can-save-the-economy-2016-06-20http://blog.artifexfinancial.com/recession-fears. "Let’s think for a moment about what determines economic growth. In the short run, the economy is constrained by how much money people, businesses and government agencies are willing to spend (known as effective demand) and by the existing stock of things such as factories, offices, stores, roads, computers, workers, human capital, financial capital, institutions, markets, resources, and technology (known as the supply-side of the economy).

The president doesn’t control any of these variables."

Trump takes credit for everything that is good. But doesn't claim any of the bad. A typical crooked politician.

He's such a narcissistic loser!

He doesn't even know what 'ally' means.

@Mame,
Trump is a temporary phenomenon. He's proven to be the most ignorant and disliked president in modern history. Even 200 political scientists labeled him "worst president in history." Psychiatrists piped in for the first time in history to warn congress of Trump's "mental instability." His vocabulary is that of a 5th grader which makes him popular with the uneducated. He tacked on unnecessary tariffs that created a trade war that increased cost for all consumers. Even the faculty and students wrote an open letter to Trump that he doesn't represent their university. Trump's downside is so enormous, I don't understand how he's able to keep his head up high. Most people would be embarrassed. He defines "narcissism" in the best way possible. He even lies about his populism. He's the only man in history who calls himself a "stable genius."

@Mame,
Part of what might unfortunately cause Trump to pull off another "win" (Electoral College win, not total votes win) would be poor campaigning by whichever Democrat receives the nomination. It was the downfall of Hillary , who failed to apply herself in a couple of key states.
