Chelsea Clinton: We Now Have a President Who Cares ‘Deeply’ about Americans
'The Biden administration deserves credit for what they have been doing'
Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton claimed President Joe Biden cares deeply about the American people as Americans have never been worse off in terms of living standards.
During an interview on ABC’s “The View," Co-host Sunny Hostin said:
“I think the answer is educating the American people, right? Because I think you’re right."
"They go to the grocery store, they go to the gas pump, and they see the prices, and they can’t afford that. There’s that disconnect there."
"Why is it happening? People are only blaming the Biden administration, and I think the education part is really important because this is a global phenomenon," she added.
"There are reasons why our inflation rate is at 9.1%."
"If you look at all the economies around the world, 60% of the economies around the world have inflation rates that are really, really high, and that is because of the global pandemic, right?" she asked.
"It’s a global pandemic," SHE SAID.
"That’s also because you have the war, the war in Ukraine. China has slowed down its production because of the global pandemic because they had the lockdown, and then you have, of course, climate change, and so there are all these factors that are leading to the fact that we have this inflation. And it’s not Joe Biden.”
“I do think though, can I say quickly?"
"It’s clear the president and his administration care deeply about the American people, and after his predecessor, that I think is an important thing to acknowledge," she said.
"And that he is not being passive," Clinton added.
"The administration has tried many things to get in front of the inflation crisis."
"They tried to lower prescription drugs last year, and Congress stopped that."
'They tried to cut taxes, and Congress was not supportive of that. He’s released oil from the oil reserve," she said.
"The Biden administration deserves credit for what they have been doing."
"We can say they should be doing more and a different set of things, but we shouldn’t pretend they can’t care or haven’t taken action because they do care, and they have taken action.”
