Why do Trump supporters so insistently give Trump credit for unemployment?

Update:

It was 4.7% as Obama was leaving office and has only gone down 1.2% in 3 YEARS under Trump

    Bush's crash drove unemployment up as high as 10%; by the end of Obama's term unemployment was down to 4.7%.  CLEARLY Obama did most of the effort of putting Americans back to work.

    BTW, Trump promised GDP growth of "4, 5, maybe 6%" and it's currently 1.9%.

    Because after rising daily during the obama reich, it began plummeting after President Trump's policies were initiated.

    Republicans always take credit for good things while blaming democrats for everything wrong!

    Like the 2008 recession! According to Republicans(at the time) it was caused by democrats taking control of the House of Representatives! 6 years of Republican control under Bush43 had NOTHING to do with it!

      That's because I know better than believe right wing propaganda based on lies!

      Like the NRA's big lie democrats are conspiring to repeal the second amendment and confiscate all the guns! What's pathetic is NRA members pay to be lied to!

    Because Trump’s tax and regulatory reforms changed the expense calculations for every return on investment analysis under consideration in America. Lots of prospective investments that had been only marginal suddenly looked feasible. Employment comes from investment.

    The best part is when President Obama reached the low numbers, trump claimed they were "cooked" and the actual rate was over 40%.  When trump became president, as if by magic, all the good economic numbers were not only accurate, but he was responsible for them.  Amazing.
