Biden Misstates Inflation Figures in CNN Interview Amid Economic Scrutiny

President Joe Biden’s recent interview with CNN has sparked controversy after he made bold claims about the economy. In the interview, Biden stated that when he took office, the inflation rate was 9 percent. However, this statement has been fact-checked and proven to be untrue, as the last time inflation rates were anywhere near 9 percent was back in 1981 during Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

The numbers speak for themselves – during Donald Trump’s presidency, the highest inflation rate was 2.9 percent, significantly lower than the 9 percent Biden claimed he inherited. In fact, in January 2021 when Biden took office, the inflation rate was only 1.4 percent. This directly contradicts Biden’s assertion of inheriting a 9 percent inflation rate.

Biden’s economic track record has been put under scrutiny, with data showing that under his administration, inflation rates have surpassed 2.5 percent for 40 months, 5 percent or more for 24 months, and 7.5 percent or more for 11 months. This raises questions about the success of his economic policies compared to previous presidents.

Former President Trump’s son, Eric, criticized Biden’s false claim, calling him a “clown.” This controversy has highlighted Biden’s reluctance to conduct interviews and the White House’s hesitance to let him appear before reporters due to his tendency to make false statements.

As the 2024 election approaches, the issue of the economy will undoubtedly play a significant role in voters’ decision-making. The stark contrast between Trump’s economic track record and Biden’s perceived failure has become a focal point for many. Americans will have a clear choice in November, with the economy being a key factor in their decision-making process.

The Western Journal urges readers to join their fight for truth and support their coverage of the 2024 election. They emphasize the importance of standing together to combat misinformation and advocate for the real truth to be shared.
