White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre again told reporters Thursday that the U.S. economy is in better shape than it has been historically, even as inflation continues to shatter 40 year highs.
Jean-Pierre claimed that unemployment rates and job growth in recent months are more important to focus on than the shrinking economy.
“When we look at where we are economically — and we are stronger economically than we have been in history,” Jean-Pierre said, adding “When you look at the unemployment numbers at 3.6%, when you look at the jobs numbers, more than 8.7 million of new jobs created, that is important.”

Jean-Pierre again repeated the claim when asked by reporter Peter Doocy why “88 percent of people in this country polled by Monmouth think that the country is on the wrong track.”
The press Secretary also claimed that Joe Biden is doing everything he can to lower living costs and energy prices, despite revelations that he sent large swathes of petroleum reserves abroad, including reportedly to companies his son hunter Biden has previously held stakes in.

She also echoed Joe Biden in blaming gas station owners for high prices, and again suggested a gas holiday tax, an idea that even Democrats have dismissed.
