Trump Takes Credit For Record Cancer Rate— but it happened under Obama’s administration

Donald Trump tends to take credit for the good things that are happening in America. He often pats himself on the back for the high performing stock market and low unemployment rates. Those positives, however, began back in Barack Obama’s tenure.

The US Cancer Society wrote, “As of 2016, the cancer death rate for men and women combined had fallen 27% from its peak in 1991. This decline translates to about 1.5% per year and more than 2.6 million deaths avoided between 1991 and 2016.”
