WATCH: Cavuto Cuts Away From Trump Speech to Defend Obama “it was not a disaster under Barack Obama”

Fox News host Neil Cavuto is making news for cutting away from President Trump’s speech to offer commentary defending Obama.

After cutting away from the President’s speech, Cavuto says “I do want to clarify a couple of things he said, that no president in history has cut regulations as much as he has. That is true. I think [Trump] might have mischaracterized the regulations that were added under Barack Obama.”

“Americans did very, very well,” Cavuro continued “So I just want to put that in some context here.”

“The unemployment rate did, under Barack Obama, go down from a high of 10 percent to around 4.7 percent,” Cavuto adds “President Trump, of course, sent that even lower, eventually getting us down to a 3.5 percent unemployment rate. But I didn’t want to leave you with the impression that during those eight years when Obama first came into office and we were bleeding about a million jobs a month that that was standard fare and that characterized the whole eight years.”

Cavuto added, “it was not a disaster under Barack Obama.”
