Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl took to social media on Wednesday morning saying that “Spending by President Joe Biden’s socialist government has flooded a recovering post-COVID economy and created… ‘inflation”.
The comment came in response to Joe Biden’s remarks on the state of the economy.
“Your socialist government spending flooded a recovering post-COVID economy and created inflation,” Pearl tweeted. “Your energy policy has created gas shortages and record prices! Your policies harm the working class! Call delay! Change defense! Please do something different!”
Earlier this month, Biden commented on May’s jobs report, which he called “excellent” and said unemployment remained “at a near historic low of 3.6% “.
Here is an excerpt from those remarks he made on June 3.
“When I took office about 16 months ago, the economy was at a standstill and COVID was out of control.
“Today, thanks to the economic plan and the vaccination plan that my administration implemented, America has achieved the most robust recovery in modern history just two years from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. .
“The labor market is the strongest it has been since the aftermath of the Second World War. We have more evidence of that today. We learned that in May the economy added 390,000 new jobs, bringing the total since I took office to 8.7 million new jobs – an all-time high.
“We learned that more Americans entered the workforce in May. In fact, working-age people have returned to the workforce at a faster rate during this recovery than at any other time in the past 40 years.
“This means that the unemployment rate is near all-time lows. And the number of Americans collecting unemployment benefits has gone from record highs to record highs, with millions of Americans getting into better jobs, with better wages.
Biden will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday night. The late night show will be broadcast live on Direct TV stream as good as streamed live on fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
