Donald Trump used his time at his latest press briefing to bash his predecessor and claimed that it was because of former President Barack Obama that he ran in 2016.
“I see the horror that he’s left us — the stupidity of the transactions he made,” Trump said of Obama.

Trump’s attempt to attack Obama backfired after Twitter users confronted him with facts over how bad his presidency has been.
Trump is now rambling on about how he had to run because Obama did such a bad job and how much he liked his old life and how much this is all Obama’s fault and then he realizes he is deep in the crazy and says thank you and shambles off

Trump responds to Obama's criticism by saying, "I see the horror that he's left us. The stupidity of the transactions that he made." He adds, "How bad he was…so ineffective…so terrible."

"I see the horror that he's left us, the stupidity…" `Horror and stupidity'? Isn't that his theme song? "We have our great border wall." We do? And it's great? And he wants us to believe Obama was not GREAT? As thousands die? Do people still believe this shit? https://t.co/o79KlJX9dU

The "horror" he left was a renewed economy, by bailing out the Big 3 auto makers, and the banks after the mortgage disaster. You know Donald, the economy that Obama saved, and you are taking credit for.

Trump knows how bad he looks in comparison. Half the people who voted for Trump in the last election won't admit to it now much less next year.

Trump is always projecting his shortcomings on others. Obama left him a booming economy and he managed to muck it up. The thing is, we knew he was going to find a way to mess it up. Every single problem he has had over the last four years, he has brought upon himself. #Impeached

#Trump is so jealous of President Obama, his electoral and popular vote victories, this record of extended economic expansion and his ability to bring unity across a mosaic of demographic groups and it drives him bonkers…..
