As inflation has continued to impact American households, Joe Biden decided to weigh in on the state of the country.

“We’re in a situation where there’s a lot of anxiety,” he stated. “Gas prices are up, exceedingly high. They’ve been up this high before, but not recently.”

Biden appeared to admit life is getting harder for the majority of Americans under his administration. During a recent televised appearance, he even acknowledged his falling approval ratings.

“My polling number is down, but it’s 48 percent to 52 percent,” said Biden. “But look, the point is I didn’t run because of the polls.”

Additionally, he admitted Americans are concerned about his policies. This comes as gas prices are hitting record highs while inflation is far outpacing the increases in wages. Biden also admitted his spending plans have nothing to do with infrastructure, but they fund his political agenda instead.

According to reports, Biden is considering shutting down another oil pipeline called Line 5 following his crackdown on Keystone XL pipeline earlier this year. Meanwhile, the move is expected to push fuel prices even higher.
