President Obama pushed back against President Trump, stating that the positive economic swing is actually a result of his term in office and not the current administration, at an Ohio rally on Thursday night.

“We worked hard to turn this economy around when I was president and Rich was there. And the actions that we took during the economic crisis returned the economy to healthy growth, initiated the longest streak of job creation on record, which continues to today,” Obama stated.

“So just remember that when you hear these folks bragging about this economic miracle. Just remember when it started. Just remember when the ball got rolling,” he continued. “We spent eight years pushing that boulder up the hill, we finally get to the top, it starts rolling down the hill and then these folks come in and say look at what we’re doing. They’re standing there, didn’t even break a sweat.”

Obama was in Ohio campaigning on behalf of gubernatorial candidate Rich Cordray and his running mate Betty Sutton. Cordray was an early supporter of Obama years ago.
