President Biden on Monday touted his administration's achievements in improving the economy, but noticeably failed to address key developments that are biting into the pocketbooks of many Americans.

Our economic strategy has worked – and it’s still working," Biden wrote in a tweet.



He claimed that 6.7 million jobs were created in 2021, unemployment is down nearly 4%, the economy has grown 5.7% and the deficit was reduced last year by $360 billion.

While some Twitter users praised Biden, others were critical of his stewardship of the economy, pointing to the highest inflation levels in 40 years and skyrocketing gas prices.

An example of a tone deaf President and media reporting distorted information that defies reality. why isn't Biden getting credit for the incredible results he is touting?

Yes, by every metric, we are having one of the best economies in decades. Obviously inflation is a concern, but not in any way unexpected after the recession of 2020, and the subsequent lingering effects of COVID. Bidens first year economic record is more than twice as good as the former occupants best year.

I love it how @Conservative and @Taylor are piling on "Biden's economy" ignoring the fact that we have just recovered from one of the biggest health and economic threats in history, no thanks to their lord and savior trump.

These guys and their hatred for everything patriotic is pathetic, but typical of today's hateful and cynical conservative, sadly.

That is the issue recovering without leadership. 17 million jobs returned between April 2020 to January 2021 so what did Biden do??? Poured gasoline on the fire to buy votes from people like you. The reality remains and you keep ignoring it, if this economy is so good why isn't he getting credit for it in the polls? Have you bothered to look at how the independents are viewing Biden?

As you yourself have said countless times, you don't care about polls. They are meaningless.

He isn't getting credit because of people like you. He has nothing to do with inflation or the price of oil.
Really? how are people like me causing the poll numbers to be so low? Have you bothered to check the internals of those polls to see where the poor ratings are coming from? of course you haven't

which is entirely meaningless. Feelings don't make the data go away. And by every metric measurable, the economy is absolutely booming.
🤪🤡

We'll see just how "meaningless" it is in a few months.

So, polls are a way to gauge a president's success you say? What was your lord and savior trump's approval rating throughout most of his presidency? Answer: the lowest it's ever been for anyone!

Biden poured gasoline on nothing. Your current state is the result of past leadership. Your ignorance of the subject is alarming.

Ah yes, this is the part where you pretend what happens in every mid term election, happening in this up coming mid term, is some earth shattering unprecedented occurrence lol.
