So, this actually happened today:
Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation. Good news – it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!

As The Hill notes, there has not been a fatal commercial airline crash in the United States since 2009. You could make the case that Barack Obama is actually responsible for keeping planes from crashing, but you wouldn’t do that because that would be stupid.
