Biden Tries to Take Credit for Trump’s Accomplishments

Former vice president — and currently the leading Democratic candidate — made dubious claims at a weekend rally

Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden took full credit on Saturday for the positive United States economy we’re currently experiencing.

He even claimed President Donald Trump was “squandering” the success of “the Obama-Biden administration.”

Biden made a passionate appeal for national unity on Saturday but also took aim at Trump, branding the president a “divider-in-chief” who must be ousted in 2020.

(Does he even realize he contradicted himself with that statement?)

The economy has been showing significant gains and record numbers as unemployment rates have hit 49-year-lows with black-Americans, women, Hispanic-Americans, and even veterans all seeing historically changes.

Biden said this in the video below: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy … Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.”

Biden is most definitely pushing “alternative facts” here.

Most of us know the Obama administration wasn’t big on helping America move forward, nor did it want voters to become prosperous.

That was not the agenda.

Obama and Biden wanted to transform America rather than help it recover fundamentally, in this writer’s view.

Obama never believed Trump’s way of doing things would make American lives better — and yet, these new policies continue to make huge gains.

None of these gains were seen under the Obama administration, which decided to push health care instead of fixing the economy.

A Harvard study found that over 90 percent of the alleged 10 million jobs that Obama created were part-time and didn’t have benefits included.

That blueprint for disaster was removed when Trump walked into the Oval Office.

Trump is not the cause of “division” in our country. That rests at the feet of the Democrats and their media accomplices.

Joe Biden had a crowd of 6,000 people in a major Democrat area — according to the media. So probably around 3,000 turned up at the rally.

This country never saw such a thriving economy in the eight years Barack Obama was in office — yet Biden claimed Trump “inherited” the economic success of the U.S. from Obama-Biden. Does anyone remember when Obama told an audience that the jobs that were gone were never coming back?

Biden was the vice president in one of the most divisive administrations in modern history. Much to their dismay, they created the conditions to elect Trump as president, something they still haven’t figured that out yet. Their response? To become even more radicalized.

Republican voters have been calling for unity for decades. Democrats have continued to call names.

In 50 years, the Obama-Biden administration’s legacy will best be remembered as the administration under whose watch the greatest political scandal in American history took place. Did Obama authorize the spying on the Trump campaign? Was any intelligence from the spying provided to the Clinton campaign?

This is bigger than Watergate, and some Democrats in high places may be going to go to jail before this is over.

Republican voters have been calling for unity for decades. Democrats have continued to call names, attack the other side on the streets, and often lie about them.

I voted for Trump, and even though I don’t agree with everything he does or says, I generally agree with what he is trying to do. The Democrats have long stated he is dividing the country, but it seems to me that when the Democrats disagree with anything he says or does just because he is Donald Trump — and expect all of us to follow suit — it’s the Democrats who are being divisive.
