President Joe Biden touted his economic agenda Wednesday amid low polling numbers on his job performance and the direction of the country.
In remarks at Chicago’s Old Post Office building, Biden railed against the economic approach of his predecessor, Donald Trump.
“The trickle-down approach failed the middle class. It failed America,” Biden said. “I knew we couldn’t go back to the same failed policies when I ran. So I came into office determined to change the economic direction of this country, to move from trickle-down economics to what everyone at [The] Wall Street Journal and Financial Times began to call ‘Bidenomics.'”
