Yeah, why wouldn't it?

The only thing noteworthy about the Obama recovery is its slow pace.
It was already surging well into the good zone by the middle of Obama's second term. Trump's just benefiting from what Obama helped bring about. And unlike Trump, we didn't have to start a trade war and domestic political strife to do so.

President Obama is the better man and a better leader. Trump will be remembered as the man who destroyed American goodwill around the world.

So yeah, at about the 200 year mark, it's probably time for a reevaluation of the "hero", so as to get a more objective picture of what he was like, or the results his leadership brought.

Hint: The young George Washington never lying about cutting down the cherry tree is just apocryphal, not real history.

Trump has been a FAILED President from day one with ZERO accomplishments. The Alt-Right is just elated to have one of their own in the White House. Trump is also a Putin sleeper cell.

Only a brain dead fool would believe Obama was anything other than an Idealistic Idiot.

Trump is extremely jealous of and obsessed with President Obama.

These statement show how completely clues the liberals are.

As for the original point, I don't think President Trump is terrified of anything and doesn't gives two hoots about Barack Obama's legacy. The only person that cares about that is Barack Obama.

Trump's legacy will always be as a bad example, the worst President in the last 150+ years. His actions will be undone almost immediately and executive orders reversed. His Cabinet Officers and staff will have plenty to say in their books. His future is mostly in court and maybe prison... if not a mental institution. Trump is obsessed with Obama and has been for over ten years. That is part of his mental illness.

Obama has nothing to worry about when comparisons are made with either Trump or Bush.

What is "Main St. America" do you mean https://www.mainstreet.org/mainstree...ca/themovement ? Try to prove your point instead of statements that make no sense - most are demonstratively better off under Trump than they were under Obama with higher salaries, more employment, higher consumer and business confidence, more manufacturing output and fewer on welfare.
