Reince Priebus: ‘Insane’ To Believe the Economy Is Based on Something Obama Did, Not Trump
INGRAHAM: "Carrie, thanks so much. Democrats continue to deny that Republicans deserve any credit for the economy. Their argument goes something like this. It’s really only good because of Obama. Oh, it’s okay now, but the economy is okay but it’s going to get worse, not going to last long, or who cares. The economic boom is overshadowed by how awful a person trump is. Former White House staff, chief of staff Reince Priebus joins us now. You heard Obama on the trail saying the economic boom is his. He’s glad people are getting around and recognizing it. How humorous was that for you to watch?"
PRIEBUS: "It’s humorous because really what jump-started this economy is what the president did in the first week, which was the deregulation, executive order for everyone regulation put in place, two have to be eliminated. Turned out that 22 were eliminated for every one put in place. It also tells you about the politics. It’s also rather smart because Barack Obama and the Democrats are fighting and 30 force play districts for the control of the house. Split districts mean they either fled from Republican to Democrat in 2012 and 2016 or vice versa. In those 34 districts, 21 of them or won by trump and the rest were won by Quentin. This is a fight that people are going to have. What matters right now is who can take claim over the great economy. As bizarre as it is for you and I and the listeners to believe that somehow the economy we are in is something Barack Obama did and not President Trump is insane. But what they are trying to do is play that game and those 34 states."
