Monday morning, Obama sent out a tweet celebrating the anniversary of the American Recovery and Reinvestment act, the $800 billion stimulus package he signed just one month into his presidency in response to the “Great Recession” that started in December 2007.
President Trump was quick to respond on Twitter and in a press briefing, touting his accomplishments with the US economy and decreased crossings across the southern border.
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history. pic.twitter.com/BmdXrxUAUf— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) February 17, 2020
….ever. Had to rebuild our military, which was totally depleted. Fed Rate UP, taxes and regulations WAY DOWN. If Dems won in 2016, the USA would be in big economic (Depression?) & military trouble right now. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2020
