Biden’s false claim that inflation was 9 percent when he took office

Inflation “was at 9 percent when I came in and it’s now down around 3 percent.”

— President Biden, in an interview with Yahoo Finance, May 14

Inflation continues to be an albatross for President Biden as he seeks reelection. After decades of stable prices — inflation of about 2 percent a year — the sudden increase in Biden’s term was a shock, both for consumers and policymakers. Inflation, as measured by the year-over-year percentage change in the consumer price index, spiked to a 9 percent annual rate in June 2022. That was the highest level in 43 years.
