A week ago, 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders admitted in an interview that “the economy is doing well,” but claimed it is simply a “10-year rebound from the Wall Street crash of 2008.”

“The economy is doing well. And I’m sure I don’t have to give Trump any credit. I’m sure he will take all the credit that he wants,” Sanders declared.

President Trump responded in a Twitter post Monday morning:

Bernie Sanders, “The Economy is doing well, and I’m sure I don’t have to give Trump any credit – I’m sure he’ll take all the credit that he wants.” Wrong Bernie, the Economy is doing GREAT, and would have CRASHED if my opponent (and yours), Crooked Hillary Clinton, had ever won!

A video was posted on the Senate Republicans Twitter account, with clips of Sanders’ comment stating the economy is doing well.
