Biden claims inflation was 9% when he began office, although it was 1.4%.  

President Biden claimed on Wednesday that inflation was 9% when he took office in January 2021  

despite the fact that the consumer price index (CPI) was only 1.4% at the time.  

"No president has had the run we've had in terms of creating jobs and bringing down inflation," Biden told CNN's Erin Burnett in an interview.  

"It was 9% when I came to office - 9%."Biden has already mentioned this idea. In April, the president stated, "Look, we have dramatically reduced inflation from 9% to close to 3%.

" We're in a better position now than when we started office, when inflation was rising."  

However, under Biden's leadership, inflation rose from 1.4% to 9.1% in June 2022.   

While it has already fallen to 3.5% as of March 2024, it remains significantly higher above the Federal Reserve's target rate of 2%.  

According to a Fox News poll from March, only 38% of Americans approve of Biden's economic policies.
