FACT CHECK: No, Biden Didn’t “Cut The Deficit” — He ADDED To It

June 27, 2024

Biden insists he cut the federal deficit (or debt, depending on his coherence) — but his claim doesn’t stand up to basic scrutiny.




  • Any deficit reduction in the beginning of Biden’s presidency was due to expiring emergency COVID spending — NOT because of Biden.


  • Biden’s inflationary spending has added TRILLIONS to the national debt and exploded the federal deficit, all as Biden claims he has done the opposite.



  • Despite misguided criticism from Crooked Joe Biden, President Trump’s actions during COVID were praised for saving lives and keeping the U.S. economy afloat amid an unprecedented pandemic.
