President Biden took back the narrative from the negative corporate media and delivered a dose of truth about his economic accomplishments.

President Biden said:
What we also see is something that a few years ago, many experts said, was impossible. Revitalization of American manufacturing. Since I took office, we have created 642,000 American manufacturing jobs in America.
We’ve seen the biggest and fastest job recovery in American manufacturing since the 50s, and some people may have given up on manufacturing, but the American people did not, and I never did, which is why I made it to make it in America. The cornerstone of my economic plan. Today’s report proves Make It In America is not just a slogan, it is my administration and a reality. I have made it a priority to bring down the federal deficit.
After watching my predecessor increase the federal deficit for the four years, he was in office, I said no more, the days of exploding federal deficits are over, and have kept my word. Look at the facts, the deficit is down a record of $1.7 trillion this year. 1.7 trillion that’s right. That is on top of a $350 billion reduction in the deficit during my first year in office.
We have seen progress. Gas prices are coming down. Down almost 1 dollar a gallon from where they were a month ago. We are making progress. We now have more than 50 straight days of falling gas prices. The price at the pump is less than $3.99 a gallon and more than half the gas stations in America. $3.79 a gallon is the most common price paid at the pump in the country.
Biden Counters The Media’s Negative Bias
Paul Krugman recently pointed out the negative media bias in covering Biden’s economy.
One of the justified criticisms of the President and his administration has been that they have not always been effective in taking credit for their accomplishments.
The media has insisted on hammering the negative and ignoring positive economic news, but President Biden has the biggest bully pulpit in the world and the announcement of job creation numbers that were double what was projected is the perfect time for the President to remind the country about the good things that he has done.
