You're right, to a degree. I believe the way to combat what you describe is with trying to educate them about how the economy actually works.
I notice though not a single person (save you) bothered to respond to a single word and are all rabid frothing for 'their side' despite what they are saying/advocating makes no sense as far as employment or the economy goes. Well, one day someone might read the things here and gain insight. You can't fault a person for trying, yes?

That is not what you said and stop trying to shift it.You said Obama gave Trump a good send off. That would be an indication that you believe the economy to Have been good while Obama was in charge.
Now two months into Trumps term his detractors are denying the good he's doing while yet claiming that all
The good is from Obama term. All of this is getting ridiculous.
According to Gary Cohn, the head of Trump's National Economic Council, there's no reason to give credit to Trump for the strong report.
During an interview with CNBC, Cohn did say the report was "right exactly where we needed it to be," but also noted that Trump's team wasn't the reason for the beat.
For one thing, Cohn noted, the jobs that have been promised by CEOs meeting with Trump haven't happened yet.
"Look, there's clearly a good February as part of the number," said Cohn. "I'm not going to deny that, but on the other hand when you look at what we've been doing here are the White House and all of the CEOs we've brought in -- whether it be Sprint or Intel -- they have promised enormous amounts of jobs and job creation in the United States. Those hirings have not been done yet. Those are future hirings."

Wonder how many of these jobs are connected to the boost in the military's budget...
