President Trump is laser-focused on rebuilding the capsized American economy in the wake of Joe Biden’s divisive State of the Union address this week, vowing to make America great again with common sense policies and a hefty dose of cold, hard facts.

As reported by RSBN, Biden took a swing at the free market system during Tuesday’s address, focusing heavily on his Build Back Better policies that promoted prioritizing climate change and expanding federally controlled healthcare, housing and childcare.

Trump released a counter to Biden’s agenda items on Tuesday in a series of campaign statements. “Joe Biden has overseen the worst economic decline since the Great Depression,” the statement read. “When President Donald J. Trump returns to office, he will deliver economic opportunity and prosperity for Americans of all backgrounds, lower inflation and cut wasteful government spending. He did it before and he will do it again.”

The statement also noted the following failures of the Biden administration:

  • “Real wages have decreased by 3.5 percent since he took office. The price of eggs has increased by 33.1%, meat 8.2%, gasoline 59.9%, used cars 7.1% and air travel 34.1%,
  • The average American family has lost $7,100 in purchasing power under Biden due to inflation and high interest rates,
  • The national debt has increased by approximately $4 trillion since Biden arrived in office.”

The Trump administration, by contrast, worked for the American people, not against them. President Trump created seven million new jobs, reformed the tax code (including doubling the standard deduction), lifted seven million people off food stamps, and increased blue-collar jobs at the fastest rate “in more than 30 years,” per the campaign statement.

President Trump facetiously responded to the State of the Union in a video on Truth Social, captioning the upload with a tongue-in-cheek remark: “Look, he [Biden] worked hard tonight, it’s not a natural thing for him, it never was, and never will be, but you’ve got to give him credit for trying. I disagree with him on most of his policies, but he put into words what he felt, and he ended up the evening far stronger than he began.”
