Trump taunts Obama: 'Guess I found the magic wand'
President Trump on Monday heralded his achievements in manufacturing growth while mocking former President Barack Obama.
“Last year was the best year for American Manufacturing job growth since 1997, or 21 years,” Trump tweeted. “The previous administration said manufacturing will not come back to the U.S., ‘you would need a magic wand.’ I guess I found the MAGIC WAND – and it is only getting better!”
Obama made the “magic wand” comment in June of 2016 during a PBS New Hour interview and town hall held in Elkhart, Indiana.
In criticism of then-candidate Trump’s campaign claims, Obama stated: "He just says, 'I’m gonna negotiate a better deal.' Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer."
