President Donald J. Trump lashed out at former President Barack Obama on Twitter, after Obama insinuated that he was responsible for the booming US economy.

“Did you hear the latest con job? President Obama is now trying to take credit for the Economic Boom taking place under the Trump Administration,” Trump tweeted.

He was referring to this tweet from Obama:

“Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.”

Trump continued in his response:

“[Obama] had the WEAKEST recovery since the Great Depression, despite Zero Fed Rate & MASSIVE quantitative easing. NOW, best jobs numbers ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted.

“Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”

The Trump campaign also responded to Obama’s tweet, saying, “President Trump reversed every single failed Obama-era economic policy, and with it, reversed the floundering Obama/Biden economy.

“Obama and Biden orchestrated the worst economic recovery in modern history.”

UPDATE: Trump campaign fires back after Obama claims credit for economic boom
