    Well, give us some examples of what Trump has done to lower the deficit, show us some figures, show us an article that DOES touch the topic of credit due...

    (Cause it sure ain't his vacations to Mar-lag-o...)

    Thx

    PS. Obama still deported more illegal folks the last 2 years as well, Trump needs to catch up there too.
    Incorrect.

    The debt never went down under Obama.

    Not ever, not even close.

    The DEFICIT mostly went down in the last years.

    Actually the deficit rose again in his last year.

    This has happened before, people getting the deficit and the debt mixed up.

    I would not agree that Obama "took credit" for Bush's contribution. They worked together in the greater interest of saving the country and often times, contributions by Bush were wrongly attributed to Obama and then used to smear Obama as a big-spending socialist.

    Every.

    Single.

    Year.

    Nearly 10 Trillion in 8 years.

    Pretty impressive.

    This is 100% correct. I do not really blame Obama, though, as he was forced to act during his early years in order to stave off an economic implosion.

    Well, HE had some good times as we found out later.

    Don't know about everyone else...

    What was the CBO's latest tally on the cost of Obamacare compared to that?

    And most of those programs at the beginning were already under way from Bush.

    LOL, while hiring the most corrupt admin ever!

    Subtract that from how much more he has spent, far more tax payer money on vacations than any other President in history.

    But, I'll accept your flimsy example as the proverbial one-legged man in a kick fight.

    So the title of the thread is a lie, and you are being less than honest as well.

    Yet.
    Nice.
