US President Donald Trump on Thursday, February 16, said that he "inherited a mess" from President Barack Obama's administration. Trump made this known at his first solo news conference, after presenting Alexander Acosta, a former federal prosecutor from Florida, as his nominee for to lead the Department of Labor. According to the US president, jobs were leaving the country to Mexico and other places, and mass instability was prevalent overseas.
He said: "Our administration inherited many problems across government, and across the economy. To be honest, I inherited a mess. It's a mess. At home, and abroad. A mess." He promised to "take care of it" but returned once again to his apocalyptic tone. He said: "Low pay, low wages. Mass instability overseas, no matter where you look. The Middle East, a disaster. North Korea — we'll take care of it, folks. "We're going to take care of it all. I just wanted to let you know, I inherited a mess." In Nigeria it quite common for their president to blame past administration like trump just did.
