Former President Donald Trump on Friday excoriated President Joe Biden over inflation in a Memorial Day video posted to Truth Social.
“As you gather with family and friends this weekend, everything is more expensive – a lot more expensive, actually – because of Joe Biden’s reckless policies that have caused soaring energy costs and currency inflation like our country hasn’t seen for over 50 years,” Trump said.
“This Memorial Day gas prices are up 48% since Joe took office… food prices are up 18%, airline prices are up 41%. Taxes are higher than ever. Interest rates for mortgages and car loans have put the American Dream out of reach for countless millions of families,” he continued.
“The typical American family this Memorial Day weekend has lost an average of nearly $7,000 a year in purchasing power because of Joe Biden’s failed presidency,” Trump lamented. “You could take the worst five presidents in history and they haven’t done the damage that Joe Biden has done.”
“Help is on the way,” he declared. “By Memorial Day 2025, our country will be roaring back!”
Trump vowed to revamp domestic American energy production and to drive down energy and food costs should he return to the White House.
“Our country will be great again,” he concluded.
