Trump Campaign Statement on April’s Consumer Price Index

May 15, 2024

“Joe Biden’s poll numbers continue to sink as prices for the American people continue to rise. Bidenomics is an unmitigated disaster. Workers and families are literally paying the price for Joe Biden’s failed economic policies, with prices on household essentials like gas, food, rent, and diapers skyrocketing. Baby food and formula alone are up 30%. Overall prices are up 20%, while real average weekly earnings are down 4.4% since Biden took office. The American people cannot afford four more years of Bidenomics. President Trump built the strongest economy in our country’s history. When President Trump is back in the White House, he will reimplement his America First agenda of low taxes, lower prices, and higher wages to uplift all Americans.” 

—Trump Campaign Press Secretary Karoline Leavitt
