President Joe Biden was criticized by the former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie on Sunday for the high inflation rates that have characterized his term in office, calling him the “Jimmy Carter of the 2020s.”
Christie was questioned by CNN anchor Kasie Hunt if Biden could take some credit for the inflation rates that have slowly started to decline after reaching 40-year highs during his administration.
“Kasie, what he deserves credit for is the fact that everything is 17 percent more expensive today than it was when he took the oath of office on January 20 of 2021,” Christie said. “Interest rates are at one of its high — our highest level in 25 years, making it much more expensive for people to buy a home, to buy a car, to be able to invest in their business and grow it to create jobs. This guy is the Jimmy Carter of the 2020s.”
“And his inflation that he created — and don’t take my word for it,” he said. “Democratic economist, former Treasury Secretary to Bill Clinton Larry Summers has said that Joe Biden created this inflation through his ridiculous spending.”
Christie said that “all Republican Party voters and all American voters deserve are two things, the truth. The truth is not negotiable.”
“And I’m not going to say something different on your program than I will anywhere else in this country. And, second, they need someone who can deliver on the issues they care about on the border, on Obamacare, on the national debt, on entitlement programs,” he added. “Donald Trump failed on all those when he was president, even with a Republican Congress. Elect me president, and I won’t.”
I am not a Christie fan at all, but he’s right about Biden.
Jimmy Carter can die in peace now, knowing he will NOT go down in history as the worst president ever.
