Critics panned President Biden on social media for boasting about his 2021 economic record.
“We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years,” Biden said on Twitter Wednesday. “Let’s keep the progress going.”
But Biden failed to cite which analyst made the claim, leading to some users to mock the president’s claim in response.
Biden made a similar claim in a speech last week, again failing to name the analyst.
“And at the end of 2021, with what one analyst described as the ‘strongest first-year economic track record of any President in the last 50 years’: nearly 6 million new jobs, a record number for a new President, because of my staff and my Cabinet; unemployment down to 4.2 percent, three years ahead of the predicted time it would take to get to that number,” Biden said during the speech.
