Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Cuts Away From Trump Speech That ‘Mischaracterized’ Obama’s Record
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto cut into a White House speech by President Donald Trump on Thursday to correct some mischaracterizations the president made, specifically over former President Barack Obama’s economic record, which Cavuto noted was very solid.
“I do want to clarify a couple of things he said, that no president in history has cut regulations as much as he has. That is true,” he noted, adding: I think [Trump] might have mischaracterized the regulations that were added under Barack Obama.”
Cavuto, who regularly draws Trump’s ire for his critical coverage of the president, pointed out that his audience “might recall we had this little thing called the financial meltdown” and that many of the regulations were put in place to prevent banks from selling risky mortgage securities, which helped cause the financial crisis.
