Former President Bill Clinton ridiculed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his slogan “Make America Great Again” suggesting that it was a false promise to American voters and racially motivated. “That message, I’ll give you America great again — If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means,” Clinton said. The former president indicated that Trump’s campaign slogan signaled that he would make white people more culturally dominate over other races in the country. “What it means is I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago and I’ll move you back up the social totem pole and other people down,” Clinton said.
President Barack Obama tells a group of young Asians that when Americans are economically stressed, they turn to racism to cope with their struggles. After Obama highlighted America’s rich heritage of multiculturalism, he pointed to the country’s racist tendencies as a result. “That especially becomes a problem when the economy is not doing well, and so people feel stressed,” he said. “Typically, when people feel stressed, they turn on others who don’t look like them.”
He blamed the faltering economy for causing the problems in America’s society. “When suddenly things are harder, people start saying, ‘Ah, you know what, this is the fault of the Chinese,’ or ‘This is the fault of Jews,’ or ‘This is the fault of the Houthi,’ or whatever,” Obama said.

True. Wall Street MADE billions from no income verification housing loans from Mr Clinton though. Those banks who went broke were bailed out by GW and Obama. GW had to deal with the tech bubble burst. All those options and promises all disappeared but alas those at the top seem to have been saved. Fact is, 7 years in you are responsible.
You are very right. He did. In 2008 before Obama was put in office it was in a decline from its highest point during the GW presidency. Since 2008 Spending and Debt have almost tripled.
