Democratic presidential candidate John Delaney on Wednesday said he feels like "some Democrats are cheering on a recession."
Delaney was taking questions from reporters when Associated Press reporter Alexandra Jaffe asked the former Maryland Congressman a question about a potential recession.
"It feels like some Democrats are cheering on a recession because they want to stick it to Trump," Delaney said. "I don't want a recession because I don't want these workers in here to face a recession, but I worry that Trump's policies are bringing one on."
CNN reporter DJ Judd followed up with Delaney to ask him if he could specify which Democrats were cheering on a recession, prompting him to say, "I'm not going to name names."
"You just get a sense—like my position is very clear, which is I hope a recession doesn't happen. I believe Trump's economic policies are fraudulent, right? He gave us a sugar high with spending and tax cuts," Delaney said. "He didn't make good investments and he got us in a trade war, so I believe that's going to end very badly and it's going to be something the next president has to deal with."
