A day after President Joe Biden was criticized by conservatives on social media for giving unsolicited dating advice to a young teenage girl in California, the President is in hot water again for claiming the “economy is strong as hell.” “.
The comment came during a call with a reporter at Baskin Robbins in Portland, Oregon, who asked the president if he was worried about US dollar strength amid rising inflation.
Holding a chocolate ice cream cone, Biden replied, “I’m not worried about the strength of the dollar. I’m worried about the rest of the world. Our economy is strong as hell.”
He added: “Inflation is global. It’s worse off than in the United States. So the problem is the lack of economic growth and sound policies in other countries, not so much in ours.”

The comment came just after Biden criticized British Prime Minister Liz Truss’ economic plan as a “mistake”.
“I wasn’t the only one who thought it was a mistake,” he said. “I think the idea of lowering taxes on the super-rich at a time when – anyway, I didn’t agree with the policy, but the judgment is Britain’s, not me.”
Biden visited Portland on Friday as part of a three-state tour of the western United States to gather turnout for the upcoming midterm elections. Biden also visited California and intends to visit Colorado before returning to Washington, DC

His visit to Portland was particularly notable as Democrats are in a position to potentially lose the governor’s mansion for the first time in decades, drawing attention from the White House.
A Democrat has ruled from Mahonia Hall in Salem since the 1980s, but two Democrats in the running — Betsy Johnson and Tina Kotek — could end up splitting the vote potential, leading to Republican Christine Drazan winning, some experts say.
While the Democratic Party officially recognizes Kotek as its nominee, Johnson still has double-digit support in polls and could spoil the race.
Biden on Saturday urged voters to support Kotek.

She is “articulate, tough, [and a] dedicated woman,” the president said at a reception for Kotek, Reuters reported.
Biden’s comment on the economy comes a day after he hovered close behind a teenage girl, telling her not to seriously date until she turns 30.
“Well, one very important thing I said to my daughters and granddaughters — no serious boys until you’re 30!” Biden told the unidentified young woman after a speech at Irvine Valley College in Irvine, California.
“Okay,” she replied.

“I’ll keep that in mind,” she added as Biden hovered inches from her face.
