Donald Trump, who is lambasting President Bill Clinton's economic record, last year called him the best of the past four commanders-in-chief – and has repeatedly lavished praise on the former executive over the years.

Trump lobbed a Twitter bomb Tuesday after Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton announced her plan to put her husband in charge of fixing the economy, tweeting: “How can Crooked Hillary put her husband in charge of the economy when he was responsible for NAFTA, the worst economic deal in U.S. history?

USA Today points out, however, that last June on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Trump picked Bill Clinton as the best of the past four executives.

The newspaper also chronicles other instances where Trump enthused about the 42nd president of the United States, including:
  • In 1997, when he told CNN's Robert Novak: "I think Bill Clinton has done a terrific job. I don't think he's been treated very fairly."
  • In 1999, when he told the Associated Press that Clinton "could have gone down as a very good and almost great president, primarily because of the economy."
  • In 1999, when he praised Bill Clinton on NBC for his "two best appointments" – Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.
  • In 2009, when in an interview with  Fox News’s Sean Hannity, Trump said the economy "did great under Ronald Reagan. And it did great under Bill Clinton, in all fairness."
