Former President Donald Trump held nothing back in his criticism of the current administration during his weekend “Save America” rally held in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
According to Breitbart, the former president slammed President Joe Biden for the record-setting inflation currently gripping America.
Trump described Biden’s handling of the U.S. economy as a “breathtaking failure,” and contrasted the way Biden’s economy is going with how Trump’s economy was holding up at the same time during his presidency.
“Less than two years ago, when I was in office, gas — gasoline — a thing called gasoline … nobody wants to talk about, was $1.87 a gallon,” Trump told the rally crowd. “And now it’s five, six, seven, and even in some places, eight and nine dollars a gallon.”
Trump spent much of his speech highlighting the vast differences between the way the two men approached the U.S. economy. Trump pointed to several moves he made during his presidency that the economy seemed to receive quite well.
“We gave you the largest tax cuts and regulation cuts in American history. Even larger than the Regan tax cuts that once held the record by a lot, actually,” Trump said.
He added: “The radical Democrats intend to impose the largest tax hike in American history. That’s what they want to do. They think raise taxes is a wonderful thing so they can waste it on things like the Green New Deal.”
“Under the Trump Administration, we had the greatest economy in the history of the world with no inflation, no inflation. Biden created the worst inflation in 47 years…”
Trump went on to say that because of Biden’s policies, the actual inflation number affecting consumers is much higher than 9.1%.
“Serious problem” ahead
Trump stressed to the crowd that if America isn’t put back on the right track, economically, years of struggle could await the entire nation.
“We got to get this act in order, we have to get this country going, or we’re going to have a serious problem.”
Trump emphasized the importance of getting out and voting in the November midterms, and continued his prediction that Republicans will make huge gains in both chambers of Congress.
