Media Slams Trump Over ‘Good News’ Tweet – But Wait, Obama Did The Same Thing! [Video]
Trump Is Underfire of Harsh Criticisms From The Obama Administration For Tweeting An Anticipated Spike In Jobs But They Forget Obama Did The Same Thing
Only, In Obama’s case, the news was terrible with a reported job loss projected about 525,000 job loss in 2009. Trump’s tweet didn’t specifically say there would be a spike in the near future, only that he anticipated one. Shortly after, the reports revealed Trump’s anticipated news was spot on.
According to Conservative Tribune, that rather non-specific tweet allegedly caused market futures to spike upwards in anticipation of good news, which the report ultimately delivered, as it revealed a better than predicted gain of 223,000 jobs and a drop of the unemployment rate to 3.8 percent for the month of May.
Former officials from the Obama administration immediately jumped on Trump’s supposed violation of the tradition to wait until one hour after the report is released before saying anything. But current White House officials — who confirmed that Trump and others received the numbers on Thursday — countered by noting he hadn’t revealed anything at all with his tweet, and merely expressed his anticipation of the release like countless other Americans.
However, Reuters‘ reported back in 2009 proves the sheer level of hypocrisy amongst the elites:
President Barack Obama predicted more grim economic news when the government releases its January employment data on Friday.
“Tomorrow, we’re expecting another dismal jobs report on top of the 2.6 million jobs that we lost last year,” Obama said during a visit to the Department of Energy on Thursday.
