    "The government spent about $96 million on travel by Obama over eight years, according to documents obtained by the conservative group Judicial Watch. A report by the Government Accountability Office, which serves as the congressional watchdog on federal spending, estimated that Trump’s travel cost $13.6 million in just one month in early 2017."

    That website shows Obama and Trump have essentially played the same amount of golf. Uses liberal BS to make Trump look bad. Nice try though.

    You gotta invest to get a return, every CEO knows this. Americans don't want to live in Cuba.

    Baba gounj You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    Why compare golf trips ? Why not compare who let the media see them play golf vs who keep the media on their buses while he played ?

    Wrong :))

    Where was Obama during Benghazi? Smoking crack with jay-z and Beyoncé.

    What did Trump do following Baghdad and where was he? Doing his job and killing a terrorist responsible.

    Why every time Trump is brought up Obama's name comes up?

    Thanks, Hannity.

    Because Trump likes to attempt reversing anything Obama did.

    It's the quantity, dummy. Plus, most of Obama's golf trips were to military property.

    That's his problem. Just focus on you and you policies. Prove yourself that way not trying to be the guy who wants to come off as attempting to fix the last presidents "mistakes".

    That would have been a bad thing. He continued the trend line for every metric.

    Baloney. Nothing was happening for the middle and working classes before Trump showed up. If an upward trend moving at a snail's pace is ok with you more power to you. But don't take credit for real movement in the right direction caused by Trump.

    Find me an economic indicator that reversed when Trump took office. Not your feelings, actual data.

    You're right, reversed isn't fair. But show me all the indicators that didn't exponentially increase after Trump took office. Given he had to do everything with TDSers and Never Trumpers hanging all over him it's remarkable what has been accomplished. And for the record if the economy was working so well Hillary would have easily captured those Rust Belt states. Things are better now.

    GDP growth did not increase exponentially. It’s around average compared to the Obama years, nothing special. There are no indicators that have shot up exponentially since Trump took over.

    Liars, damn liars, and statisticians. What I do know is very tangible. Very low unemployment. Repatriation of overseas corporate money. Great increase in manufacturing jobs. Record stock market. High consumer confidence. TDSers refuse to admit it, but it's there.
