On Wednesday, Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council, appeared on Fox News alongside host Martha MacCallum, who pressed him over the continued surge in inflation, during which he continued to tout a false increase of 545,000 new manufacturing jobs.
MacCallum pressed Deese over the continued record-setting surge of inflation, which reached 8.6% in May, a high not seen in over 40 years in the U.S. She noted that David Asman from Fox Business said, “what you have to do when inflation is in this situation is increase supply. You need to increase manufacturing.”
“Why not do that?” MacCallum pressed.
