President Joe Biden doubled down on antagonizing the majority of Americans who believe the country is heading in the “wrong direction” under his administration’s watch, confirming he will do “nothing” to address the concerns of those who are worried about his administration’s performance thus far.
“You mentioned that Americans are frustrated, and in, fact, 75% of voters say that the country is heading in the wrong direction despite the results of last night,” a reporter asked Biden on Wednesday.
“What in the next 2 years do you intend to do differently to change people’s opinion of the direction of the country, particularly as you contemplate a run for president in 2024?” Biden was then asked.
“Nothing, because they’re just finding out what we’re doing,” Biden replied immediately.
Biden falsely claimed that the national average price of gas per gallon was “over $5 when I took office” during prepared remarks delivered last month.
“The most common price of gas in America is three dollars and 39 cents, down from over $5 when I took office,” Biden said.
It is unclear where the President sourced the idea that gas prices were “over $5” in January 2020, but the claim is completely untrue.
In actuality, the national average for a gallon of gas was $2.39, less than half of $5 and over a dollar less than the $3.39 figure Biden bragged about on Thursday.
A poll from Rasmussen Reports revealed in October that the majority of likely American voters want Joe Biden to be a one term president, and only just over a quarter of voters want him to serve a second term.
The polling asked respondents “Should Joe Biden run for reelection in 2024?”
60% said no, Biden should not run. 26% said they want Biden to seek a second term. 14%, meanwhile, said they were not sure.
News for the elderly president became dramatically worse, reports Breitbart, when those polled were asked for their thoughts on the 79-year-old’s physical and mental fitness.
