WATCH: Jean-Pierre Still Blaming Trump For Economy Ahead of Biden Speech

  • When White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked on The View about the record number of people who claim to be struggling more financially, she attributed it to the economy handed to President Joe Biden by former President Donald Trump.
  • “When the president walked into this administration, the economy was tanking. COVID was taking over. It was ravaging our country, and he took action to make sure that we got the economy back up and running,” she said on Tuesday.
  • Sara Haines noted a new ABC News poll showing that 40% of people consider themselves to be worse off financially since Biden took office. In response, Jean-Pierre explained, “It’s been a very hard couple of years.”
