Pence Drops Choice Words for Barack “You Didn’t Build That” Obama

There has been a whole lot of back and forth between the Trump administration and former President Barack Obama regarding the economy in 2018, and with good reason.

America is booming.  Our economy is continuing to set record after record.  Not only is the stock market soaring, but we are seeing a tremendous and uncanny employment surge as well.  It doesn’t take a political genius to figure out that hiring an ultra successful business mogul to the office of the President probably has more than a little to do with that.

But that’s not how our previous Commander in Chief sees it at all.

Barack Obama, a man infamous for claiming that any achievement you make in America was actually a team effort in his notorious “you didn’t build that” speech, has been attempting to take credit for this roiling success while out on the speaking trail.

Vice President Mike Pence was none too fond of that.

The vice president said the last administration raised taxes while the Trump administration passed the largest tax cuts in American history. “That’s promises made and promises kept,” said Pence, who added that under Trump, they cut out the core of Obamacare: “The individual mandate is gone.”

He then remarked about former President Obama’s recent speeches taking credit for the American economic boom that has risen under President Trump and claiming it began under his administration. The crowd balked at the idea that Obama has claimed credit.

Vice President Pence then launched into what he said was a message for former President Obama:

President Obama, you presided over the weakest economic expansion since the Great Depression. When we took over this economy, it was growing by less than two percent, and now it’s growing by more than four percent. This economy isn’t booming because of your policies; it’s booming because we’ve been rolling back the failed policies of your administration since day one.

Bold and stern.  I love it.

The Vice President had just one more thing to add.

“America is back, and we’re just getting started,” declared Pence.
