On Friday, the hosts of the talk show “The View” brought their usual insights into American politics as they welcomed the former first daughter, Chelsea Clinton. Being the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and the former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, it is no surprise that when it came to the problems facing America, Chelsea believed it had nothing to do with current President Joe Biden. But before she even got a chance to speak, host Sunny Hostin was sure to prepare the crowd.
According to Hostin, Americans need to be educated about who is to really blame for inflation, the war in Ukraine, and gas prices. “If you look at all the economies around the world, 60% of the economies around the world have inflation rates that are really, really high, and that is because of the global pandemic, right? It’s a global pandemic. That’s also because you have the war, the war in Ukraine. China has slowed down its production because of the global pandemic because they had the lockdown, and then you have, of course, climate change, and so there are all these factors that are leading to the fact that we have this inflation. And it’s not Joe Biden.”
Trying to defend President Biden, Chelsea admitted that he cares deeply for the country. “I do think though, can I say quickly? It’s clear the president and his administration care deeply about the American people, and after his predecessor, that I think is an important thing to acknowledge. And that he is not being passive. The administration has tried many things to get in front of the inflation crisis. They tried to lower prescription drugs last year, and Congress stopped that. They tried to cut taxes, and Congress was not supportive of that. He’s released oil from the oil reserve.”
Continuing her thought, Chelsea concluded that Americans should be grateful and give him credit. “The Biden administration deserves credit for what they have been doing. We can say they should be doing more and a different set of things, but we shouldn’t pretend they can’t care or haven’t taken action because they do care, and they have taken action.”
