The unemployment rate fell to 3.9%. Trump deserves some of the credit. It would be easier to give him credit on the rare occasions when he does something right if he didn’t take credit for things he didn’t do. The fall in unemployment and the rise in the stock market are continuations of the trends under Obama. Trump claims he inherited a mess but that’s not true.

Employers added 3.1 million jobs during the last 15 months of President Barack Obama’s tenure. ”
That’s exactly my point!
