WASHINGTON, DC- U.S. President Joe Biden said Americans today are better off than they were two years ago, boasting about a stronger economy and better quality of living.

“The hardships of the past two years are hard to overstate. But please know that our country and economy are in a much better place today,” Biden said Saturday. “There is still more work to be done, but we are doing everything we can to prepare for a future beyond the pandemic.”

As Biden made that claim, U.S. gas prices are once again surging toward record highs, the COVID-19 pandemic is coming out of one of its busiest periods, inflation is out of control, the U.S. border with Mexico remains open to allow for criminals and illegal drugs to cross and most Americans still have yet to fully rebound from the pandemic.

In blue states such as New Jersey, New York and California, tens of thousands of businesses closed down due to prolonged COVID-19 lockdowns.

The U.S. appears to be at the brink of war with Russia over tensions in Ukraine and at the Olympics this week, China and Russia announced a bilateral agreement to strengthen their alliance against America and the west.

Back in the states mental trauma persists after years of lockdowns, murder is at a record high and drug use and overdose has reached endemic levels.

Things are much better now than they were two years ago, according to President Joe Biden.
