Fact-Check: Biden Lies to Americans with Giant Whopper in First 5 Minutes of Speech
President Joe Biden began his second State of the Union address on Tuesday by claiming the economy was “reeling” when he took office two years ago — and implying that it is in a better state now.
According to two metrics that many Americans use to gauge their own financial health, that claim does not add up.
“Two years ago, the economy was reeling,” Biden said. “I stand here tonight after we’ve created … 12 million new jobs.”
He added, “More jobs created in two years than any president has created in four years.”
