For the second time in as many months, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters during a press briefing that the U.S. is now at a stronger point economically than it has been “in history.”
Jean-Pierre’s latest comment on the economy echoes her claim a month ago that the U.S. economy is doing better now than it has done historically. On Thursday afternoon, the press secretary referenced the unemployment rate and job growth in recent months, claiming those numbers prove the U.S. economy is strong, even as inflation and gas prices have hit record highs under President Joe Biden’s watch.
“When we look at where we are economically — and we are stronger economically than we have been in history,” Jean-Pierre said. “When you look at the unemployment numbers at 3.6%, when you look at the jobs numbers, more than 8.7 million of new jobs created, that is important.”
