Fact-Checkers Catch Biden's Lie That Everywhere Has Higher Inflation Than His America

Fact Checkers CATCH Biden Trying To Pull Another Fast One

(RightWing.org) – The use of hyperbole, or exaggeration, is nothing new to politics and certainly not unique to President Joe Biden. However, amid one of the country’s most significant economic collapses in ages, one would hope the leader of the free world would have enough consideration for Americans to get his facts straight. Sadly, it falls on fact-checkers and other groups to tell America what Biden apparently can’t or won’t say.

On June 14, Biden claimed inflation rates were “worse everywhere but here” while speaking at the AFL-CIO’s Quadrennial Constitutional Convention. The president was touting his economic plan, saying it’s shown “extraordinary promise.”

However, The Western Journal (WJ) quickly fact-checked that claim and determined the president’s assertion was patently false. Driving its conclusion home, WJ cited figures from Axios, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and Pew Research Center.

  • Axios reported the US inflation rate sits “in the middle of the pack globally.”
  • The OECD showed America’s rate soaring over that of Japan, Israel, France, and neighboring Canada.
  • Pew analyzed economic data from 44 of the world’s advanced economies and determined the US had the 13th highest inflation rate.

Additionally, Pew Research reported the inflation rate quadrupled in the US in the last two years. That stunning figure ranked America 19th of the 44 countries studied for its advancing inflation rate between the first quarter of 2020 and 2022.

Do you think Biden should focus on America’s global ranking or on fixing things at home?
