President Joe Biden is facing backlash for a tweet posted on his Twitter account that blamed Republicans for the country’s economic woes.

“Republicans are doing nothing but interfering with our efforts to address gas price gouging, lower food prices, lower health care costs and, hopefully soon, your prescription drug costs. That is not right. And that’s why this election is going to be so damn important,” Biden tweeted Sunday.

Biden encountered criticism online for his statements. Scott Jennings, a CNN contributor and Bush White House alumnus, tweeted, “88% wrong way + 38% job approval = good luck with this BS.”

“Americans know the TRUTH Big Guy. Nobody buys the finger pointing. YOU and the Democrats OWN INFLATION. Your politics make it MUCH WORSE,” tweeted conservative political writer Kimberly Morin.

Others, like author Matthew Betley, attacked the tweet but acknowledged it likely wasn’t sent directly from the president himself. “They are corrupt and intentionally sabotaging America…internally,” he wrote.

“Huh? I thought it was Russia’s fault,” joked Mark Zinno, a talk radio host.

DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw similarly said, “I thought it was the Putin price hike.”

Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., tweeted, “Joe Biden believes the American people are fools.”

When he ran for president, Biden struck a very different note. “It’s hard to believe that this needs to be said, but unlike this President, I will do my job and take responsibility. I will not blame others. And I will never forget that the job isn’t about me – it’s about you,” he tweeted on June 4, 2020.

Scott Presler, a conservative activist, has criticized Biden for his policies. “@JoeBiden Day one you canceled our pipeline. You fired workers with your illegal, unconstitutional vaccination mandate. We have fewer medical staff because you forced them to choose between their jobs and a prescribed medical procedure. They gave Ukraine $54 billion but forgot about the US,” he wrote.


Inflation is at a 40-year high, gas prices are rising and Biden’s poll numbers are falling ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. Despite these economic woes, some political elites, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are enjoying lavish vacations in Italy.
