Liberal MSU Students Give Trump Economic Credit

Despite former President Obama’s efforts, it appears that at least one of the communities he organized is giving the current president, albeit grudgingly, credit for the economic gains that have occurred, well, during the Trump years. “Campus Reform headed to Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan to ask students for their opinions,” Cabot Phillips reported on the Campus Reform site maintained by the Leadership Institute. “‘He’s been out long enough now, [the economy] is not on him anymore, it’s more on Donald Trump. I guess he’s a little bit in the wrong,’ said one student when asked about former President Obama’s comments.”

“‘I would, unfortunately, side with Trump on this one. I think he has done a lot for the economy that Obama didn’t do such a good job on so I’ll side with Trump on that one,’ added another.”

“Other students added ‘I feel like once a President’s done they hand it off,’ and ‘in terms of [economic] confidence and changing people’s attitudes, I would say that’s mostly Trump.'”

“Throughout the day, many self-identified liberals were in agreement: even if they didn’t like to admit it, Trump’s economy is booming.”

“‘Of all the things I have a problem with, the economy isn’t one of them… He’s a businessman. I think that’s his strong suit,’ admitted one student.”

“‘His tweets and stuff, I find offensive… but economically I feel like he’s really helping us,’ said one, while another added, ‘overall yeah, he does make some good deals.'”

“Another student said she hoped he’d become ‘a little bit more well mannered,’ but when it came down to it, ‘I do know for a fact he’s been helping… and we’ve been doing better with unemployment.'”
