President Biden refused to acknowledge Thursday’s disastrous GDP report, telling reporters the data shows there is now “enormous growth in the country.”
The data showed the total economy shrinking by 1.4%. Analysts had predicted a modest increase of approximately 1%.
“I think what you’re seeing is enormous growth in the country,” Biden said at the White House while calling for $33 billion in military aid to Ukraine.
“It was affected by covid blockages we incurred along the way,” he added.
