Joe Biden Faces Brutal Fact Check For Claim that ‘Inflation was Rising’ When he Became President

Joe Biden today made an outrageous claim that “inflation was rising” when he became president and was brutally fact-checked.

A reporter asked Biden, “Do you take any blame for inflation?” to which he repeated the question and declared, “No”

“Why not?” the reporter pressed. “Because it was already here when I got here, man,” Biden insisted.

“Remember what the economy was like when I got here? Jobs were hemorrhaging, inflation was rising, we weren’t manufacturing a damn thing here,” Biden added.

U.S. House Rep Byron Donalds shared a clip of Biden’s claim in a tweet and reported, “Joe Biden refuses to take responsibility for record inflation under his watch.”

“FACT: Inflation is now 500 percent higher than it was when Biden took office,” Donald pointed out.

According to the U.S. inflation calculator, inflation held steady at 1.4% from December 2020 to January 2021.

Inflation then rose to 1.7% in February of 2021 before peaking at 9.1% in June 2022. The most recent data shows it at 6.5%.
