In a recent news article, it was highlighted that President Joe Biden’s claims about job creation under his administration are misleading. The article argues that Bidenomics has not been as successful as the White House portrays, especially when compared to the job growth during the Trump administration. While Biden claims to have created over 400,000 jobs per month, a closer look at the numbers reveals a different story.
According to the article, the US economy actually added 12.53 million jobs after April 2020 under the Trump administration, while Bidenomics took 2 and a half years to add 12.56 million jobs. This means that Biden took twice as long as Trump to create the same number of jobs after the COVID-19 pandemic. The article suggests that simply reopening the economy and schools contributed to job growth under Biden, rather than any specific policies implemented by his administration. Furthermore, the article criticizes blaming Trump for local governments’ decisions to shut down the economy, stating that it is not a fair assessment of the situation.
The article also includes graphics shared by the White House promoting the success of Bidenomics. However, the author of the article dismisses these claims as “pure malarkey.” They argue that the job growth under Biden is significantly lower than what was achieved under Trump. The article presents calculations to support this argument, stating that Trump averaged more than three times the job growth post-COVID than Biden.
To emphasize their point, the article compares the current Democratic Party to New York City’s corrupt political movement of the 1800s, Tammany Hall. The author suggests that Biden may be a modern-day “Boss Tweed,” and former President Obama his henchman. They use images of a tiger, which was often used to symbolize Tammany
