The Biden administration and establishment media are trying to “gaslight people about the economic slowdown,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said on Thursday following the latest dire economic report, showing the U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) shrinking by 0.9 percent in the second quarter.
“U.S. GDP dropped for a second quarter in a row, which is the definition of a recession,” DeSantis began before pointing the finger directly at President Biden’s administration.
“While the Biden Administration and its legacy media cheerleaders are trying to gaslight people about the economic slowdown, we have seen Biden’s poor economic stewardship and the negative impact it has had on families,” he continued.
“Now, Biden wants to tax and spend even more, which will only make things worse,”
