One of the highlights of the Trump campaign was to discredit the work done by President Obama in the economic field in the last 8 years. The Trump strategy worked because the American middle class feels poorer than 8 years ago. If Trump’s presidency will get success in the economic field the merit, in part will be Obama. The current President has been the victim of “populist revolt” of the middle class but the numbers bear him out, Obama has faced and defeated the financial crisis, has led unemployment to 4.6%, has given health insurance to more than 20 million Americans, and has invested in renewable energies. Trump has already decided his line, low taxes, investment in infrastructure to lower unemployment and stop to climate agreements to make American industry more competitive. All this will be possible thanks to the work of his predecessors.
