Biden argues inflation is higher in other countries in feisty snap

President Joe Biden released his frustrations during a Thursday interview regarding inflation.

Biden argued that inflation in other countries was much higher than in the U.S.

Not my fault!

“We’re in a stronger position than any nation in the world to overcome this inflation,” Biden said.

“If it’s my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher? You ask yourself that? I’m not being a wise guy,” he added.

Fact check

Fox Business reported that U.S. inflation was 8.6%. In comparison: Germany at 7.9%, France at 5.2%, Japan at 2.5%, India at 7.04%, Canada and Italy at 6.8%, and Saudi Arabia at 2.2%.

The facts appear to disprove Biden’s words regarding America’s inflation being lower than in other countries.

The monthly inflation increase is in addition to higher prices month after month throughout Biden’s term. Many products are services are up 20% or more than when he entered office.

The challenges have made inflation the top issue for voters heading into the midterms. If so, that won’t end well for Democrats who are seen as responsible for the surge in prices.
