Former Vice President and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden continues to blatantly lie to the media — and the media continues to eat up every word of it.
While talking to reporters after the Democratic debate earlier this week, Biden asserted that we’re facing a problem in the U.S.: “The economy, as well as the soul of this country, is collapsing because of this presidency.”
But to take a line from Biden competitor Kamala Harris: “That’s just not true.”
Trump by the numbers
According to FactCheck.Org, all key economic numbers are up for the second quarter of 2019. Unemployment was down 3.7% in June, and the number of job openings in the U.S. has increased by 30.2% since Trump took office.
Moreover, real earnings for workers are up by 2.5% since Trump took the White House.
But that’s not all. Home prices are up by 22.5% since Trump took office, and homeownership is up by 0.5%.
Additionally, FactCheck.org reports, “gross domestic product was growing at an annual rate of 3.1% during the first quarter of this year, after going up 2.9% in 2018 and 2.2% during [Trump’s] first year in office.”
That is nearly every economic indicator we have — and they are all in the positive.
And not only are they in the positive, but they have also been since very early on in Trump’s presidency.
Setting the stage
The only thing that is going to stop this economy right now is a Democrat president — and even Joe Biden knows it.
You see, what Biden is doing is setting the stage to place the blame for an economic depression on Trump.
Rest assured, if any Democrat wins the White House in 2020, all those green numbers will be going red very quickly — and we know Democrats like “Sleepy Joe” will never actually take the blame for it.
