January of last year, per the Hill, The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.
A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.
The pros cite the White House’s push for lighter regulation and the recent tax bill as critical to a pro-growth environment; more than 90 percent of the group thought the tax bill would boost GDP expansion over the next two years.
However, that did not stop MSNBC from hosting a guest, Gregory Meeks, with the radical opinion that Trump is purposely ruining the economy that Obama got “back on track.”
This is not the first time Dem Rep. Meeks took a salacious claim to MSNBC.
Last year, Meeks made waves by claiming Trump wants to make America “just white.”
On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Weekends with Alex Witt,” Representative Gregory Meeks (D-NY) discussed President Trump’s threat to slap tariffs on Mexico over illegal immigration and argued that Trump “inherited” an economy that was trending in the right direction from President Obama, and Trump is “doing everything in his power to try to destroy that.”
Meeks said, “Look, this president inherited an economy that was moving in the right direction. He should thank his soul that it was Barack Obama who put it together. He’s doing everything in his power to try to destroy that.”
