Joe Biden blames Putin for high inflation

Passing his latest remarks on inflation, Biden stated, “The two challenges on the minds of most working families are prices at the pump and prices at the grocery store.” He continued, “Both of these challenges have been directly exacerbated by Putin’s war in Ukraine”, as published by the New York Post. The 79-year-old added, “The price of gas is up $1.40 since the beginning of the year when Putin began amassing troops at the Ukrainian border.
 
Biden further shared, “This is a Putin price hike. Putin’s war has raised the price of food because Ukraine and Russia are two of the world’s major breadbaskets for wheat and corn.”  According to reports, inflation was higher throughout 2021 before Russia invaded Ukraine in late February.  In March, Inflation hit a four-decade high of 8.5% and touched 8.3% in April. However, it is being reported that inflation was already high before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began. Inflation was 7.9% in February, 7.1% in January and 7% in December.

‘Stop blaming Putin’

Social media users logged into Twitter to drag Biden over the same, “Biden proposes fighting "Putin inflation" by injecting more money into the economy," said one as another shared, “Biden has destroyed your retirement via the stock market crash. Your savings with record inflation. And your day to day activities with $5 gas prices. This is all intentional. It’s not Putin, a pandemic or by mistake.”  Another chimed in, “Many Americans simply cannot afford the oppressive Biden economy. it's not Putin's fault. Joe allowed inflation to run wild by instituting massive federal spending, attacking the oil industry in the name of climate change. One wonders what the leftists in the media think about this.”
 
The next one tweeted, “So Biden is blaming Putin for the 20%+ inflation we're experiencing. Jerome Powell is the luckiest man alive.” Meanwhile, one user posted, “Joe Biden keeps blaming Putin for the high cost of oil and inflation. That means Putin outmaneuvered Joe Biden, and he lost.” One individual mentioned, “YOU caused the HIGH GAS PRICES!!!!!  It’s YOUR hyper inflation. Stop blaming Putin” as, another concluded, “Biden has lost all credibility with Americans due to his continuing failures to deal with any crisis as @POTUS. Take responsibility for inflation rather than labeling it Putin's Price Hike. Biden is a weak and failed leader. Visit the damn border!”
