Former President Donald Trump is 100% right to question America’s future under Joe Biden’s leadership.
Under Trump’s presidency, America experienced an economic boom never before experienced in modern history. Consumer prices were down, wages were up, and employment was nearly nonexistent. Not to mention America’s newfound freedom from foreign oil imports thanks to Trump’s energy policies.
On Wednesday, a highly-anticipated inflation report was released by the Department of Labor, and, as you well know by now, it wasn’t pretty. According to the report, inflation climbed to a four-decade high in June, reaching 9.1%, though most economists believe the number is even higher.
Inflation has not reached 9.1% since December 1982, which includes the financial crisis of 2008, which Biden was also around for.
News of the report rightfully went viral leaving many Americans questioning, “How can I survive this?”
Well, Former President Donald Trump posed the exact same question in a statement posted to his Truth Social account.
“Inflation just hit ANOTHER 40-year high of 9.1%, which is terrible for our Country,” Trump wrote.
In his statement, Trump noted the price increases of common goods and services since Biden took office, including fuel, airfare, and eggs — up 60 percent, 34 percent, and 33 percent respectively.
He then asked a question so pertinent that it truly highlights Trump’s genius ability to get right to the heart of a problem using language everyone can understand:
“How can we survive this?”

The former president said the country was “weak” because of the Democrats and encouraged Americans to vote Republican.
“America will not allow this to go on for much longer,” Trump continued.
Meanwhile, the Biden administration is working overtime trying to deflect from June’s inflation report. In a statement following the release of the report, Biden claimed the numbers were “out-of-date” and didn’t reflect the slight decrease in gas prices from the previous 30 days.
Biden’s economic adviser Brian Deese similarly called the report “backward-looking” and demanded more government spending in response.
This report comes after the Federal Reserve took unprecedented action to quell the political backlash stemming from record inflation. They raised interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point, the most aggressive move taken in decades.
Still, the average American citizen is forced to constantly confront the fact that, thanks to Biden, daily life has become more expensive and less efficient.
